Job Title and Total Compensation Study Begins
UW-Madison, with the UW System, will begin a study of current job titles and compensation. This review of more than 30,000 employees across the UW System will help create sustainable ways to maintain market-informed job titles and compensation to continue to attract and retain the best talent. Existing job titles system-wide do not always accurately reflect job duties, and total compensation (defined as direct pay plus the value of benefits) may not consistently reflect the job markets where we compete. The last market comparison the UW System conducted for unclassified salary ranges was in 1986. University staff salaries have never had a comprehensive evaluation.
