About the Study

The results of the Study will provide you with clear guidance to make informed decisions about advancing in your career and provide tools to managers when making decisions about pay or promotional opportunities for their employees. No employee will lose their job as a result of the study.

The Study will result in relevant and market-informed titles and pay ranges. Your base pay will not change because of the Study. The results will provide guidance on how to address market issues over time.

The results will help us sustain and grow our outstanding workforce.

Study Phases

In Phase One, we established a project team structure that will eventually include over 250 employees. We also finalized a two-year project plan. More information is available at the Study Website.

In Phase Two, we will develop a job framework which will align titles and provide clear and transparent career progression. This fall we will hold forums to inform you about the Study and gather your input on the draft job framework. Employees and managers will update job descriptions early in 2018.
