Vice Chancellor Michael Reese hosts compensation strategy webchat - Wed, Feb 4th

February 2, 2015

Colleagues,

As our campus continues the very important job of implementing our compensation strategy for non-represented staff at UC Merced, I want to take this time to provide a brief update and remind you about an upcoming opportunity to ask questions and receive information regarding this ongoing process.

As you may have heard at the Jan. 14 Winter Town Hall or read in the most recent issue of Panorama, in-depth work continues on UC Merced’s three-year compensation strategy.  Here is where we are now: after conducting detailed analysis of salaries and job functions, the campus has identified 66 people whose salaries appear to be the most inequitable.  Our next step is to further examine each of those positions to ensure they are appropriately classified and compensated, and we expect this process to occur over the next three to four months.

I have said from the beginning that it is my goal to keep you informed regarding this process and to be as transparent as possible.  I will continue to reach out to you in order to provide updates and answer any questions you may have.

With that, on Wednesday, Feb. 4 from 2:15-2:50 p.m., I will host a second compensation webchat.  Participants are invited to watch the live stream and will be able to ask questions anonymously.  A link to the webchat stream will be posted prior to the event.  The webchat will be recorded, so those who are unable to watch it live can view the recording at their convenience.

I look forward to the opportunity to keep you abreast of the key developments related to this initiative and hope you will join me for the webchat.

Best regards,

Michael Reese
Vice Chancellor for Business and Administrative Services
