The University has organized its employee roles into broad job families with clearly defined career paths and transparent pay structures. The job families represent similar types of roles and duties across the University. The purpose of these families is to:
- Align our job classifications with external market trends and ensure that our classifications match the work being done.
- Create a more efficient way for OHR and unit HR staff, managers, and supervisors to administer job classification and compensation.
- Provide a foundation for strategic workforce planning and development to meet the University's needs and priorities.
