Position Management


Position Management

The University of West Florida uses a Broadband Classification and Compensation system for staff employees (Human Resource policy HR-12.00). This system allows the University to focus on performance and market level. It does so by using a few, wide pay bands to determine compensation, with an emphasis on management determination of pay rates. Broadbanding expands the focus from job content and scope to include the position relevant knowledge, skills, and abilities of the individuals doing the work. Thus, it enhances pay for performance (when applicable), better maintains a competitive job and compensation structure to aid in recruitment and retention, and streamlines administrative processes.

What are the benefits of Broadbanding?

  • Facilitates pay for performance (when applicable).
  • Supports dual career ladders, permitting supervisory and subject matter experts (technical experts) to be recognized.
  • Facilitates career development by enabling employees to move within the same band while recognizing achievements with pay adjustments.
  • Employees can receive salary increases when they improve job knowledge, skills and abilities without having to be reclassified.
  • Enhances organizational effectiveness by producing flatter organizational structures.
  • Reduces the perceived need to create additional levels of classification and/or supervision to justify higher pay.

UWF uses classification specifications,  Pay Bands‌ and  Pay Ranges‌ based on industry recognized classification standards and compensation market data. 

The  Guidelines for Job Descriptions Evaluations/Comparisons‌ provides a general description for making relative comparisons among job responsibilities.

The  University Work Force Class Specifications provide the position code, a representative sample of the job requirements and the minimum qualifications for the classification.

Employees in staff positions complete an online job description to describe the duties and responsibilities performed in their position. The job description is the basis for each position’s title and pay band placement. The university utilizes PageUp to house job descriptions and post positions. PageUp can be accessed via MyUWF.

PageUp Guides

 PageUp instructions for job descriptions can now be found in PageUp on the dashboard.  To access instructions, log-in to PageUp from MyUWF and click on the Administration link under the blue Recruitment tile. Up to date instructions are listed on the right hand side of the dashboard.
