Compensation Philosophy

The compensation philosophy of the City of Colorado Springs is to be a governmental employer of choice. We do this in part, by attracting, retaining, and motivating qualified employees through the offering of the best overall whole career experience that includes total compensation generally competitive to our defined market, while recognizing our fiscal-responsibility, and being best-in-class stewards of our resources.
