Career Advancement

A Career advancement is for a staff member who has taken on additional work, responsibility, expanded scope or increased proficiency in an area and is typically deserving of a 1-5% raise, without a change in classification.  

Career Promotion

A Career promotion is for a staff member who has increased work responsibility and scope in a way that moves them to be more appropriately classified in a level above their current classification and typically includes a raise of 1-10%.

Career Shift

Career Shift - when it is determined that the current classification or job family is inaccurate for the work being done and a person should shift (within the same pay level) to a new classification that is more aligned with their primary work.  This typically does not include a raise. 

Market Adjustment

In some cases, a position may be eligible for a market adjustment. There are several situations/reasons that warrant a market adjustment including bringing an employee in line with competitive salaries in the University and/or amongst peers or addressing apparent disparities in compensation amongst similarly qualified candidates.

Exceptional Performance Award

For staff who complete a large or complex, high impact project or take on additional work for an extended period, maintaining performance expectations, a lump sum award of up to 10% of their base salary can be provided up to 2 times per fiscal year, 6 months apart.

SPOT Award

For staff who temporarily take on additional work or go above and beyond during a time of departmental need, a lump sum of up to $200 net ($311.30 with fringe), can be awarded up to 6 times per fiscal years, 30 days apart.

Additional Work Completed

If you'd like to pay an employee for completing additional work, above and beyond their typical job duties, we can help determine the best route to take.
