A New Classification and Compensation Program

UTHSC Human Resources and HR Offices across the state created a new program for classification and compensation. The program offers a new and simplified classification standard for staff and is compatible with the our financial/human resources system, IRIS.

The program is designed to meet several goals, including:

  • Maintain one classification program for all staff members across the State.
  • Maintain standardized criteria for classification.
  • Evaluate jobs consistently throughout the University.
