St. Olaf strives to maintain a total compensation package of salary and benefits that provides equitable pay across the college and accommodates the hiring of a qualified staff.
The goals of the compensation plan are accomplished by:
- Development and maintenance of a salary structure that is equitable, understandable and guides compensation decisions
- Review of the structure on an annual basis to ensure its continued integrity
- Recommendation of a periodic adjustment to maintain equity and reward employees for service
- Facilitation of a process whereby supervisors can request a review of a position’s placement in the salary structure
