A central part of creating a Positive Working Environment is ensuring that people are rewarded appropriately. It is important to ensure that contribution is assessed using a fair and equitable system of evaluation that applies to all staff.
Currently terms and conditions of employment decisions, including pay, are based on a historic system that requires fundamental review to ensure that it is appropriate for a world-class organisation such as ours. There is a need to work towards a system that is relevant, logical, transparent and equitable for all colleagues.
As a result the University is embarking on a major employment project called the Reward Agenda. The nine pay and grading systems we currently have will be replaced with a single pay and grading structure together with 'harmonised' terms and conditions of employment, to ensure that people contributing the same to the University in different roles receive the same 'reward' in terms of pay and other conditions.
As you can imagine this is no small task, but we plan that it will be implemented by December 2005. Further details and the latest information are available on the Reward website.
