Compensation and Strategic Rewards partners with campus clients to deliver effective compensation and rewards programs tailored to advancing UCSF as an employer of choice. These programs serve as a catalyst for first-rate organizational performance by defining equitable pay and metric-driven rewards and incentives.
UCSF should strive to provide a total compensation package (salary and benefits) that allows us to recruit and retain critical talent in a competitive workforce market. UCSF’s pay range strategy is to align salary range mid-points with market median pay, with the goal of structuring individual pay, within each range, relative to consideration of varying levels of experience, education, and performance. In general, employees with limited to journey level experience and satisfactory performance should be situated below range mid-points and staff who possess senior level experience, exceptional skills, and superior performance should progress above salary range midpoints. Managing salaries of current staff to achieve these objectives is accomplished primarily using the merit and equity programs. Benefits programs are developed at the UC systemwide level.
UCSF's most valuable resource is its employees. The Compensation team strives to develop pay and reward programs to attract, motivate, and retain outstanding staff to carry out the mission of the organization. Compensation uses a structured, consistent process to deliver services. Collaboration and a partnership with management are key to delivering successful business solutions, while ensuring fair and equitable practices across the institution.
