How the Salary Administration Program is Maintained

In accordance with the compensation philosophy, the salary program will be reviewed regularly to assure that it remains competitive with the appropriate labor market. For example, most non-exempt (hourly) jobs will be compared to the appropriate local job market. Other jobs may be compared to a group of peer Colleges, Colleges of similar size or complexity, or organizations with similar functions (e.g., accounting).

The Overall Structure

Human Resources will review the salary structure annually to determine how inflation has impacted salaries and whether other organizations are raising their ranges. In addition, input from Department Heads/Chairs or Supervisors concerning the competitive environment in their own profession is encouraged.

  • Information about other organizations will be gathered through salary surveys
  • Decisions to revise the salary structure will be based upon external market conditions and the College's operating conditions.
