How is the Evaluation Done? u the manager submits written request to HR along with an accurate, comprehensive, current job description u Staff Relations Co-ordinator: interviews manager and staff member conducts research into comparable UW positions discusses the result with manager who conveys to staff
Frequently Asked Questions: u My job has changed significantly. Should it be reviewed? u My job hasn’t been reviewed for a numbers of years. What should I do? u What if my manager doesn’t agree with the result?
Annual Staff Salary Increase Program: u all annual increases are based on merit u there are no across the board/Cost of Living increases u job-values are increased by an amount recommended by the PACSC after reviewing relevant data, which may include market movement, consumer price index (CPI), national survey data and funding
Performance Appraisals: u conducted annually u forwarded to Human Resources, by mid-March u paper copy held in HR for 5 years u ratings are from 1 to 5 with increments of.25 for ratings above 3

u The departmental merit pool. u Salary increases have two components: a)basic increase which can’t be adjusted b)supplementary increase u Staff members receive salary increases based on their performance appraisal rating and their position in the salary range (compa-ratio). Individual Salary Increases:
Some Additional Comments: u basic increase may not be changed by department head u staff members with compa-ratios over their performance goals will receive less than the range adjustment u staff members with compa-ratios less than their performance goals will receive more than the range adjustment u system has been designed to mitigate the effects of “lavish” and “stingy” evaluators u staff members who have reached their performance goal will receive the range adjustment
More Frequently Asked Questions: 1. What do I do if I don’t like my performance rating? 2. My manager hasn’t given me my performance review, what should I do? 3. I didn’t receive the range adjustment, why? 4. How long will it take to reach my target? 5. What happens when I reach my target?
