Compensation and Workday for M&P Staff
Beginning July 1, 2015 faculty and staff will be able to view and manage their personal information related to benefits and compensation in Workday, just as they do now in the Yale Portal. An important change for M&Ps is a new structural compensation component called Job Level.
When M&Ps review their personal information in Workday, they will see a Job Level associated with their position in the Grade Profile field. The Job Level is a label that describes the placement of a particular position in the University’s hierarchy of jobs. Some examples of the new job levels include Leader, Manager, Supervisor, and Associate.
The Job Level is determined by critical components of the position such as scope, effect and knowledge and has no impact on salary.
Goal to Simplify
Today, Yale has four different systems to classify an M&P position: traditional grades (21-31), bands (P/M 3-8), tri-bands (MU-PE) and ungraded (00). Adding the Job Level to Yale’s current band and salary structures is a first step to simplify our overall compensation structure. The Job Level structure will help us more accurately organize the work we do and enhance our alignment with our compensation philosophy. The plan is to transition to the single compensation structure by 2017.
Effective September 1, 2014
