UGA Journeys will help modernize University Human Resources' approach to career development for staff, as well as staff and faculty supervisors. This effort will feature implementing new tools and procedures that provide a continuous career development model built to create transparency, retention, and growth. Through professional development, career mapping, and compensation total rewards this program will empower staff to pursue their professional goals.
What are the BENEFITS OF UGA JOURNEYS?
Compensation structure will include new classifications and policies aligned to market research and built for transparency
An updated approach to setting salaries will allow UGA to hire and retain staff using a market-based approach to compensation. This will assist with hiring in a competitive market as well as retention of current employees.
New professional development tools and training will support identification of career development opportunities
Staff will have the opportunity to develop their skills for their current role and to prepare for potential future opportunities when positions become available. This work will also provide tools and resources to supervisors as they work to support the career development of their staff.
Introduction of a new tool that features a staff evaluation process that encourages growth conversations
University Human Resources will launch a new performance management tool which will be online and will include the Staff Competency Model (PDF) and job requirements associated with each job title.
Career level progression mapping that clarify areas for staff advancement
By aligning professional development with career progression, UGA staff will have a clear understanding of what is available for their development. Development courses may be in-person, but many will be available online through the Professional Education Portal (PEP).
