The Village of Hoffman Estates takes pride in attracting and retaining a diverse, high-quality, professional workforce in order to meet the service demands of the residents and businesses of this community. In order to remain competitive with similar markets, such as comparable local governments within the northwest suburban area, the Village's Compensation and Benefit strategy has been to maintain employees' salaries and benefits at or above the midpoint of these historically comparable communities.
The communities that the Village of Hoffman Estates has historically compared themselves to are: Village of Schaumburg, Village of Arlington Heights, Village of Mount Prospect, City of Elgin, Village of Elk Grove Village, City of Des Plaines, and the Village of Palatine. The Department of Human Resources Management continues to monitor comparable communities' salary and benefit information on a regular basis. In addition, other factors, such as cost of living, employee performance, and union contract obligations, are used in determining the Village's compensation and benefits package.
The Village organization values its employees and the contribution they make to the community, and understands the importance of retaining quality employees in meeting the service needs of the community.
