Recruitment and retention program

Supervisors may award additional salary increment steps to both classified non-union and contract classified staff to address serious salary equity/alignment or retention issues if they have budgetary approval from their department. Before utilizing these step increases for contract classified staff, consult the applicable collective bargaining agreement provisions on compensation, recruitment, and retention.

There is no limit to the number of additional steps that may be approved at one time, but the additional salary increment increase cannot exceed the top automatic increment step of the employee’s range, and it does not change the employee’s progression start date.

Campus: Recruitment/retention steps are requested in Workday. Follow the Request Compensation Change – Staff Campus user guide.

Medical Centers: Complete the Classified Staff Salary Recruitment and Retention (R&R) – Med Centers Only (MS Word) form and contact Medical Centers Compensation if you have questions.
