- If the Board of Regents were to approve a pool of funds for salary
or other (non-salary) enhancements, should we proceed as we have done
in the past (using the funds to pay for merit - putting everything
into salary) or should we approach this in another way? For example,
should we just focus on salary or provide other items that faculty or
staff can benefit from? e.g. more childcare options, parking supplement
etc. If only a salary increase is preferred, whose salary - faculty,
staff, others (graduate assistants)? Although we are covered under the
state-mandated benefits program, we are seeking suggestions for additional
optional benefits or Work-Life programs were we have more flexibility.
- If the Board were to approve a salary increase, did last year's merit model
work for you? Do you have suggestions for improvement? Is there a better way
to tie compensation with performance? Please do not suggest across-the-board
increases because the Board will want to see compensation tied to performance.
