Frequently Asked Questions

Will compensation practices be reviewed as the new personnel systems are developed?

Yes. UW System has different compensation tools for different types of employment categories. These tools range from methods that provide pay flexibility for managers to more rigid structures that do not allow managers to negotiate starting pay or make needed adjustments. Work teams developing the new personnel systems will review compensation practices (internally and externally) and recommend options that will ensure the new personnel system implements pay approaches that are competitive and meet the needs of each institution.
