On November 7, UW–Madison employees will have updated job titles and new position descriptions as part of the Title and Total Compensation (TTC) Project. The project will update the university’s title and salary structure in partnership with UW System. To prepare for this change, employees are encouraged to view the updated TTC Project Resource Library website and attend the August 10-11 employee forums. Several online tools are available to help employees understand what will and will not change, how to prepare for employee conversations, and how to confirm one’s job title and standard job description.
The TTC Project Resource Library has been reorganized by topic. Resources include:
- Confirming Your Job Title and Standard Job Description – This tip sheet helps employees determine if their updated title is appropriate and aligns with their current job responsibilities. It also has tips on how to hold an effective conversation.
- What to Expect During Employee Conversations – This factsheet provides an overview of the conversation and how to prepare.
- How UW Compares Pay to the Market – The TTC Project will have a market-informed title and salary structure. Learn more about how the university compares itself to the market.
- Managers and Supervisors Resources – Dedicated online tools for supervisors and managers include online training, tips for creating a position description, frequently asked questions, and more.
The TTC Project Resource Library will continue to be updated as more information becomes available.
