MADISON, Wis. - A consultant will be paid up to $900,000 to conduct a two-year study at the University of Wisconsin to reclassify and set compensation for thousands of jobs.
The Capital Times reports that the Title and Total Compensation Study is collaboration between the UW-Madison and the UW System.
UW System spokeswoman Stephanie Marquis says the two entities are splitting the cost of New York-based consultant Mercer.
Mercer will assess job duties and responsibilities, develop titles, create a compensation structure, review benefits and implement new structures. The company will also review the changes for up to four years after implementation.
A June 2016 news release announcing the study said UW campuses have about 39,000 employees and thousands of job titles, which can be confusing and often aren't accurate.
The study is scheduled to be completed in March 2019.
