We reviewed compensation practices as requested by the City Council in 14-R-4120, adopted September 15, 2014. The audit focuses on describing current workforce demographics and patterns in compensation changes since fiscal year 2009, reviewing departmental practices compared to city code, and comparing city code provisions regarding compensation to those of other cities and to industry best practices.
The city could strengthen compensation practices and market competitiveness. Atlanta falls in the middle among comparable cities for codifying best practices, and city practices contribute to internal and external inequality.
