Classification and Compensation Review

The primary goal of the Classification and Compensation Review Project is to review the current Professional and Scientific (P&S) jobs and pay practices in order to design a new, market-driven structure and pay philosophy that enable the attraction, retention and reward of P&S employees at Iowa State that is aligned with our mission, and is fair, equitable and compliant. 
Expected Outcomes: 

  • Create and establish a university-wide compensation philosophy for P&S staff
  • Develop a defined P&S pay structure (including a nonexempt pay structure) that balances market, equity and performance 
  • Develop defined pay administration policies and practices to maintain a modern and competitive pay program
  • Better define pathways for P&S career development
