Summary :  Reference for all employees who have inquiries about promotion opportunities at the University. Audience: Managers, Supervisors, Employees


Primary Information

    A promotion is a change from one position to an open position typically at a higher band or pay zone and is normally accompanied by an increase in salary and title change.
    The major criterion used in the promotion process is the demonstrated ability of the applicant to perform satisfactorily in the new job. The decision to promote will be made after considering factors such as competency, growth and development, demonstrated ability to take on new responsibility, experience, potential for growth, seniority, and affirmative action goals.
    In some situations, the result of a promotion may not prove to be satisfactory to either the employee or the University. For this reason, there is a standard probationary period, during which time both the employee and the supervisor have the opportunity to evaluate the new situation. If expectations are not met, every reasonable effort will be made to find the employee a more suitable position within the University. Employees within the probationary period because of a promotion retain all their benefits including vacation, sick, and personal days.
    Promotion salary changes affect an employee’s BASE SALARY:
