Pay structures are maintained by job families. The pay ranges are used to effectively communicate the market-relevant pay opportunities for purposes of planning, budgeting, employee hiring, and employee pay adjustments.
The pay structures are analyzed on an ongoing basis using relevant labor market wage and pay surveys. This assists with determining relevancy to the market encompassing a competitive market for the jobs from which the University recruits and retains qualified employees.
NU Values is the compensation and performance management system covering the managerial/professional and office/service employees of the University of Nebraska. This system organizes positions at the University into 15 job families. It allows the University to be more competitive by enabling Human Resources to align family pay scales with the labor market pay scales.
