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
Compensation Managers must consider the 4 pay factors when any of the following occur: • New Hire/Transfer • Permanent Status • Promotion • Reassignment • Career Progression Adjustment Career Banding offers more flexibility and fewer restrictions
