a. Update from Human Resources
The Peer Review
Process has been completed. There were reviews. 71%
resulted in a changed pay band, changed title, or both. 50%
increased in salary band, mainly due to changes in job content since
completion of the first PDQ or additional information.
Positions were not changed if the evaluation by the committee was
the same or lower than the original assignment. However, no
position went down in salary band due to the review. Employees
that requested a review will be notified of the results. In
addition, all unclassified employees will receive a confirmation of
their title, classification and salary band.
Human Resources continues
to work on a Policies and Procedures manual in order to provide
structure to the hiring, promotion and raise process. The
recommendations are currently being reviewed by Matt Filipic.
They will also be shared with Cabinet and/or Council. HR is
also working on an applicant tracking system (coming Fall 06) which
will allow the university to review hiring practices/processes.
position reviews: HR plans to review 20% of positions per year with
priority going to those areas that have been restructured recently.
The Peer Review process may continue to be used - this is under
consideration. Joyce Howse made the suggestion that if there
were the case, we should consider make the Peer Review Committee a
standing committee of USAC.
