    A promotion is a change from one position to another position typically at a higher pay level and is often accompanied by a 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.
    Promoted employees retain their employment date for purposes of crediting for benefits including paid time off accruals.
