pay factors
Pay Factors:

Financial Resources - the amount of funding that a manager has available when making pay decisions.

Appropriate Market Rate - the market rate applicable to the functional competencies demonstrated by the employee

Internal Pay Alignment - the consistent alignment of salaries for employees who demonstrate similar required competencies in the same banded class within a work unit or organization.

Required Competencies - the level of competencies that are required based on organizational business need and demonstrated on the job. This pay factor considers:

  • Minimum qualifications for class
  • Knowledge, skills, abilities and behaviors
  • Related education and experience
  • Duties and responsibilities
  • Training, certifications, and licenses

Managers must consider the 4 pay factors when

any of the following occur:

  • New Hire/Transfer
