Title & Total Compensation Training Sessions for Managers


The University of Wisconsin (UW) is embarking on a complete redesign of its current classification and compensation structure. The goal of the Title & Total Compensation Project is to develop new systems that will enable institutions to continue to attract and retain the best talent.

Initial job mapping has been completed on the UW-Green Bay campus, and the next step will be employee-manager conversations between December 1, 2019 and February 15, 2020. During these meetings, employees will discuss their updated job title and job description with their manager. Employees will receive their updated job title information prior to their meeting with their manager, and the full title library will also be posted publicly at this time. Employee feedback and questions are appropriate, valid, and expected during the Employee-Manager conversations.

To support managers in this process, HR is holding training sessions which will cover the following topics:

  • Overview of the new title structure
  • Process information and timeline
  • Manager-specific resources
  • Best practices for promoting effective employee-manager conversations

All managers who supervise academic staff and/or university staff employees are strongly encouraged to attend one of these sessions. The same information will be covered in each session:

  • Monday, November 4 – 1:00-2:00 p.m. in the 1965 Room
  • Wednesday, November 6 – 9:00-10:30 a.m. in the Alumni Room (UU 103)
  • Wednesday, November 6 – 1:00-2:30 p.m. in the Christie Theatre
  • Thursday, November 7 – 2:00-3:30 p.m. in the Christie Theatre

We will have a Skype option available for the Wednesday morning session. The link for that skype session will be sent out to Wednesday  morning registrants. Therefore, if you are planning to attend via skype, please register via the link below for the “Wednesday, November 6 – 9:00-10:00 a.m. in the Alumni Room (UU103)” session.

The Office of Human Resources will also be holding open forums for all employees on November 13th and 14th. Please watch the HR Connect blog for more information about the upcoming forums.
