Compensation and Workload Study

The development of the new University Personnel System (UPS) that will begin implementation on July 1, 2013, has led several UW institutions to review their internal compensation and personnel policies and seek outside guidance to evaluate their practices. UW-Green Bay will begin the process for an RFP (request for proposal) to hire a consulting firm to conduct a salary study and workload study for faculty, academic staff, classified staff and limited (administration) employees.  The objective of the studies is to benchmark compensation and workload with a group of comparable institutions.  A review of existing policies and procedures will occur with the goal of establishing compensation policies that are transparent, easily understood and managed. The workload study will be examine the effects of changing academic and administrative workloads on the ability of the University to provide high quality education.

The RFP process is expected to take four to six months.  Members of the RFP committee include:

Sheryl Van Gruensven, Director of Human Resources

Dan Spielmann, Special Assistant to the Chancellor

David Dolan, Associate Professor

Andrew Kersten, Professor

Emily Rodgers, Academic Librarian

Mark Roe, Help Desk Professional

Compensation expert from the community to be named

Additional information will be communicated over the course of the next several months. Please contact Human Resources at hr@uwgb.edu or ext. 2390 if you have any questions.
