Compensation Standards and Practices

The Compensation department collaborates with hiring managers, supervisors, senior managers, and the Office of Human Resources & Institutional Equity to provide policy guidance and administration of a uniform compensation program.

Manager Responsibilities

Each manager is responsible for:

  • Obtaining senior management and budget approval prior to requesting any type of compensation analysis or review.
  • Making sure that each staff member’s job description reflects current responsibilities, essential functions, and minimum qualifications.
  • Providing an annual review of each job description to ensure up-to-date descriptions.
  • Monitoring and analyzing salary relationships within their work group to ensure fair and consistent pay administration.

Assistance is available from each unit’s Human Resource Business Partner (HRBP), as well as members of the compensation team, to provide consultation to managers regarding planning and conducting regular analyses.  Follow the link for HRBP assignments.
