Title & Total Compensation Project – Standard Job Description Library is Posted


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 is to modernize the existing title and compensation programs which will, in turn, attract and retain the best talent for the organization.

Initial job mapping has wrapped up on the UW-Green Bay campus, and the next step will be employee-manager conversations starting in December, 2019. To prepare for these conversations, the UW System has recently published the Standard Job Description Library. The library includes drafts of proposed standardized job titles and job descriptions for Academic Staff, University Staff, and Limited Appointees. The library is meant as a reference tool for employees, managers, and HR staff to use during employee-manager conversations which will begin in December (and last through Spring 2020).This library will continue to be updated based on feedback gathered through the employee-manager conversation period.

As a reminder, if you are interested in learning about the background and history of the project, current status, and additional information about the employee-manager conversations, please consider attending one of the November open forums, scheduled for:

  • Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. in the Christie Theatre
  • Thursday, November 14, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. in the Christie Theatre

UW System has also published additional resources, including explainer videos and an eLearning module on their Resources page.
