Comparing MU benchmark jobs to external market Selecting MU benchmark jobs Evaluating internal Job hierarchy Determining pay ranges From Grade to Pay Improving MU’s Compensation Plan 5 Implementing and communicating new program
20 Two objectives in developing a pay system and structure are Internal Equity External Competitiveness From Grade to Pay
21 Internal Equity Job evaluation determines the internal relationships between jobs Job evaluation results in each job being assigned to a pay grade External Competitiveness Benchmark jobs were graded Titles in the study were graded Titles with no market data were assigned to grades based on job evaluation From Grade to Pay
“Benchmark” 22 Benchmark Jobs A representative job, easily identified and common to many organizations
“Salary Survey” 23 Salary Survey An organizational sample of jobs and salaries compared to the external labor market, from which compensation conclusions can be drawn.
Positions in the same grade are equal Ranges allow the option to pay market rates The midpoint – experienced and fully qualified employee 24 Salary Structure Maximum is the highest salary level for the titles Range spread is the Max-Min Min
Pay Grade Pay Range Midpoint Market Rate Market Ratio (Midpoint ÷ Market Rate) 3$22,300$21, $25,600$25, $29,400$28, $33,800$31, $38,900$39, $44,700$42, Job evaluation determines the internal relationships between jobs by assigning titles to pay grades. Pay range midpoints approximate the market for building the structure. Developing Pay Ranges 25
17 Pay Ranges Tiered range spreads increasing from 35% to 125% to accommodate greater breadth of responsibility Gradually increasing midpoint progression from 12% to 20% Market ratios reflecting parity between pay range midpoint and market Single structure for all campuses Two Executive broadbands 150% range spread Developing Pay Ranges 26

35 Frequently Asked Questions
No one’s pay will decrease as a result of the study. However, some employees will receive a pay increase as a result of the analysis. 36 Will my pay be affected by the study?
Frequently Asked Questions No. The Staff Job Title and Salary Study is about the work, not the worker. Performance evaluation is about the employee’s individual performance and is not a part of the study. 37 Will my performance evaluation be affected?
Frequently Asked Questions A career path for advancement may be clearer as a result of the study. 38 Will this affect my ability to advance in my career?
Frequently Asked Questions 39 Why is HR conducting this study under current budget constraints? While titles have been reviewed on an ad hoc basis, a comprehensive job evaluation study has not been conducted on staff positions since 1972.
Frequently Asked Questions Where titles involve similar duties and responsibilities, it is likely that the number of titles will be consolidated, without eliminating staff. However, that does not preclude your department from using working titles. 40 Will my title change? Mizzou currently has over 1,600 distinct job titles for a population of 7,500 employees.
Frequently Asked Questions If the complexity of the job increased, a pay raise could result if the job is evaluated at a higher level, though a pay raise would not be guaranteed. If the complexity of the job did not increase, though more of the same duties were added, the job would not be evaluated at a higher level and a pay raise would not be considered, based on the job evaluation. 41 Additional duties have been added to my job. Will I get a raise?
Frequently Asked Questions Yes, within the next year, all of the job families will be evaluated. 42 Will the other titles and job families be studied?
Key Points to Remember Titles were evaluated Title consolidation conducted Salary ranges developed 43 Employees will not lose pay Job duties will not change Organizational structure will not change No elimination of positions or layoffs Employee performance will not be evaluated
