There’s a reason the majority of organizations who use WBCP become repeat clients. We go beyond the business-as-usual engagement and take a client-centered approach to each step of a project.

Consulting services WBCP provides:

Organizational Assessment & Development
We provide solutions

Our organizational assessments provide actionable recommendations that you can use, not just put on a shelf. We pinpoint key issues by assessing the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and barriers of a program, department or organization.

Our recommendations are based on:

  • Surveys
  • Interviews with staff, leadership, service providers, and community partners
  • Focus groups
  • Research and analysis
  • Data evaluation
  • Trends and best practices

Classification and Compensation Studies
We deliver

We have provided classification and compensation studies for City of Grants Pass, City of Irvine, City of Medford, City of Phoenix, and the County of Santa Barbara. WBCP’s studies address title, department, and organizational salary and compensation needs.

WBCP clients are impressed with our attention to detail and willingness to meet specific compensation needs.

WBCP did a comprehensive classification and compensation study for the County of Santa Barbara for 147 benchmark job classes. The study required a comparison of wages as well as most benefits and was customized to meet the County’s needs. The results were outstanding: completed quickly; was the most cost-effective bid received; and the County was able to use the information gathered in numerous ways. ”

Wendi Brown used her professional relationship with Polaris® to leverage their involvement and create general competencies to be included in our job descriptions. This partnership, along with the individual work the company did with the overall revamping of our job descriptions, was exceptional and timely in-light of continuing demands for redrafts by the City.”
