In addition, APHRC recently developed a new five-year Strategic Plan that created a new organizational structure.  In order to retain talent, stay competitive and operate in a competitive labor market, APHRC is undertaking a comprehensive job evaluation exercise to establish the real worth of existing and new positions within its organizational structure.
