If you have any questions about the information provided here, please contact the Director of Human Resources. The Village of Schaumburg is looking for talented and motivated employees with a wide range of backgrounds and professional experience to achieve our organizational goals and the service requirements of our residents and businesses. The village`s compensation and utility strategy has been developed to help the village attract, reward and retain the best talent. For unionized workers, wages and benefits are ultimately dictated by the negotiation of a contract or, possibly, by mandatory interest rate arbitration procedures for sworn and subject to a certain rate of collective agreements. The municipalities that the Village of Hoffman Estates has historically used for comparison are Schaumburg, Arlington Heights, Mount Prospect, Elgin, Elk Grove Village, Des Plains and Palatine. The Ministry of Human Resources Management continuously monitors information on the salaries and performance of comparable municipalities. In addition, factors such as the cost of living, employee performance and union contract obligations are used to determine the village`s compensation and benefits. In determining salaries and benefits, the Village of Schaumburg compares not only to the Village of Arlington Heights, Village of Bolingbrook, City of Des Plains, City of Evanston, Village of Hoffman Estates, Village of Lombard, Village of Orland Park, Village of Palatine, Village of Skokie and Village of Tinley Park, but also to the private sector to remain competitive. The Department of Human Resources regularly monitors wage and market performance information. In addition, other factors, such as the cost of living, the performance of workers, the private market, if any, and union contractual commitments are taken into account in determining the village`s compensation and benefits package.
The Village of Hoffman Estates is proud to attract and maintain a diverse, high quality and professional staff to meet the service needs of the village`s residents and businesses. To remain competitive with similar markets, such as comparable local governments in the Northwest suburbs, the village`s compensation and performance strategy is to maintain employee salaries and performance at the centre or above the centre of a series of historically comparable communities.
