Position Evaluation Procedures

Position Evaluation is a process that uses the information provided on the Position Evaluation Request (PER) [DOC] to identify, analyze and measure each position against internal equity and external competitiveness. After a position has been reviewed with a Sr. Human Resources Business Partner, the PER should be sent to the HR Compensation team at hrcomp@syr.edu. The HR Compensation team will evaluate and assign the appropriate category, title and pay band.

Once the position has been classified, Human Resources will verify funding with the Office of Budget and Planning. When funding is secured, the appropriate executive leadership approvals will be sought by Human Resources. Once finalized, the position will be posted on sujobopps.com with the assistance of the Talent Management team.
