The University of Wisconsin System has embarked on a complete redesign of its current classification and compensation structure. The goal of the Title & Total Compensation Project (T&TC) is to modernize the existing title and compensation programs which will, in turn, attract and retain the best talent for the organization.
After a lengthy delay due to COVID-19, it has been announced that the new title structure will be implemented in November of 2021. The full title and standard job description library is currently posted on the UW System Title & Total Compensation Project website.
To prepare for this implementation, we expect that employee-manager conversations will begin in July of 2021. During these meetings, employees will discuss their proposed mapped title with their manager. Employee feedback and questions are appropriate, valid, and expected during these employee-manager conversations. Training for managers will take place in June, 2021.
If you are interested in learning more about the Title & Total Compensation Project, please consider attending one of our upcoming virtual open forums:
- Longer forums for those who would like the full background and history of the project, current status, and information about employee-manager conversations:
- Shorter forums for those who have attended presentations about T&TC in the past and would appreciate a brief update about upcoming activities:
No need to RSVP, just mark your calendar to attend utilizing the links above! We will also be recording the sessions and will make those available on the HR Connect blog.
More details about the Title & Total Compensation Project will be communicated to employees in the HR Connect weekly email newsletter and blog throughout the summer and early fall. In addition, information can be found on the UW System Title & Total Compensation Project website.
On behalf of the campus project team and leadership, I would like to thank you for your continued engagement as we take the next steps in this initiative. Please contact Human Resources at firstname.lastname@example.org or ext. 2390 if you have questions.
