Classification and Compensation

Classification and Compensation Philosophy

Georgia College seeks to attract, retain, and reward highly qualified, diverse, and talented employees by providing a competitive total compensation package with consideration for external market conditions, skills, knowledge, and expertise. A market-based compensation structure helps facilitate recruitment and retention of these employees and promotes opportunities for career progression and recognition of employee contributions to their jobs and to the University.

Base salary and benefits are the primary compensation elements at the University. The base salary reflects the value of an employee’s role both externally and internally, as well as the capabilities and contributions of the individual.
