PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WMBB) — Last year, a salary compensation study was conducted at Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport. It revealed that salaries were 25% lower than in other markets. ECP Airport staff is making some financial changes.
The study was conducted by Evergreen Solutions and compared Beaches International to other airports and communities in the Southeast.
Evergreen then left ECP with eight recommendations, five of which have already been implemented.
Some of those recommendations include bringing airport staff salaries up to the market midpoint and adjusting the salary of the Executive Director up to the market minimum, actually raising his salary. As well as, conducting a report on the annual cost of living in the area.
“We want to continue that effort ensuring that we maintain our competitiveness amongst our competitors in the community so that we continue to attract the great workforce that we have today,” said Executive Director, Parker McClellan.
There are other small changes that Evergreen has recommended to ECP. All of these changes will be completed by a two year period.
