Those waiting to find out just how City of Beverly Hills employee compensation compares to those in the private sector are going to have wait a lot longer.
City Treasurer Eliot Finkel broke the news to the City Council on Tuesday that a long-awaited study public vs. private compensation study was no longer in the offing.
Last fall, the City paid $100,000 to Mercer, a pay and benefit consulting firm, to perform a study comparing the City’s pay and benefit plan with those in the private sector that were of comparable size or close to Beverly Hills.
Finkel said 30 companies were solicited for information, but despite efforts from both he and Mayor Lili Bosse to contact the companies, complete pay and benefit data was only received by one private company. Three partial surveys, which Finkel said were not useful, were also returned.
