HR provides an update on the OA job family framework project

A human resources project team continues to assess and review the preliminary OA job family framework and position placements produced by Sibson Consulting. 

The team will complete its initial review of the proposed structure and position placements in February, and then begin a more in-depth review and vetting process by sharing the draft framework with University of Oregon leadership and their designated unit representatives by late March. This vetting process will likely continue through spring term. The project is on track to meet the milestones established in the project timeline.

As the framework is developed, reviewed and refined in the months ahead, the HR project team offers more insight into the key components of the a job family framework.

Human resources launched this project in early 2019 as the next step in building a comprehensive OA job family framework. The first phase was completed in 2016 with the implementation of salary bands for OA positions. This second phase of the project will expand upon the work completed in phase one and create a job family framework that offers enhanced visibility and transparency about placement, growth and career advancement opportunities. More information about the purpose and goals of this project is available on the HR website.
