Policy

[horizontal rule]

The salaries of regular classified employees, university staff, and non-faculty administrators are administered within guidelines associated with the assigned market zone of their position. The intent is that the salary offered to staff should be consistent with the parameters noted below:

  • Learning: lower end of targeted market zone; for new hires who just meet the stated qualifications/experience for the position
  • Competent: between lower end and Market Reference Point (MRP) of targeted market zone; for staff able to perform most job requirements or new hires who have directly relevant prior experience, but require procedural and departmental training
  • Advanced: generally salary around MRP of targeted market zone; for staff fully knowledgeable of all aspects, procedures, and departmental requirements
  • Expert: between MRP and higher end of targeted market zone; for staff who have depth and breadth of experience, have consistently demonstrated ability to execute and are accountable for outcomes, routinely handle complex situations involving interpretation of policies, practices, and procedures, and have demonstrated behaviors that would lead to career move
  • Exemplar: higher end of targeted market zone; for staff who have mastered all aspects of their position and demonstrate behaviors that are determined to be models for others (e.g., mentor)

Exceptions to the boundaries of the market zone may be required due to extenuating and/or unforeseen circumstances; consultation with OHR Partners, Compensation, and Recruiting is advised.
