Decision Band Method/Exempt Banding Project

In 2012 we created our Compensation Identity Plan, one of the university’s nine core plans, in which we articulated a multi-year approach to compensation. In our plan, we determined that compensation decisions will be made using the following three principles:

1. To fulfill our promise of transformative education to students, we must be competitive in the local and national market for talented faculty and staff.
2. We will be forthright with current and prospective employees about where we fit in the market, so they can make informed career decisions.
3. We will address compensation considerations as a central component of the budget process rather than as an afterthought.

As we have been implementing the compensation identity plan, exempt compensation questions about internal equity and external parity arose, and it became clear that additional work needed to be done in this area.  In response to that need, we have partnered with Fox Lawson Associates to conduct a job classification and compensation study of our professional exempt classification of employees.  For a summary of the project and an announcement of the first employee meeting on February 25th, click on the PDF link below.
