Human Resources executives to discuss trends in compensation studies, public-sector executive recruiting and online HR solutions
DALLAS – The Waters Consulting Group, a leader in compensation consulting and executive recruiting for public-sector organizations, today announced plans to exhibit at the 99th Annual Conference of the International City/County Management Association, set for September 22-25 in Boston.
“The ICMA Annual Conference brings together hundreds of city, town and county managers, plenty of whom are familiar with The Waters Consulting Group,” said Waters Consulting Group President Rollie Waters. “We hope to remind this important group of leaders about several trends that we believe should be top of mind today. These include the recent increase in public-sector organizations seeking compensation consulting.”
Waters said he has noticed a significant uptick in interest in compensation consulting as public-sector organizations and their employees shake off the effects of the most recent economic recession. While Waters Consulting has experience in a range of pay systems, the firm recently has been retained by two public-sector organizations looking to institute a skills-based pay system. Rollie Waters has long been an advocate of skills-based pay. The fourth edition of his book, The Public Sector’s Guide to Skills-based Pay, is being prepared for release soon.
The Waters Group founder is scheduled to attend a reception and dinner on the evening of September 21 and the Strategic Partner Annual Meeting on the morning of September 22.
The Waters Consulting team in Boston is also to include Chuck Anderson, CEO of Waters’ Executive Search Group. He will be focusing on alerting attendees to the executive recruitment Waters is coordinating for a new city manager for Irving, Texas. Senior Consultant Chuck Rohre will be discussing recruitments as well as his work conducting developmental and promotional assessments of public safety officers. Waters Consultant Shawn Wachtel will be in Boston as well, talking about the Waters Group’s suite of online HR solutions.
The Waters Group booth is No. 512, and is located near Theater A in the Expo Hall of Boston’s Hynes Convention Center.
