Title Guidance and the Art of Job Analysis   (back)
Presenters: Brock Flowers and Stephen Colleton

This presentation will cover a recent and ongoing Compensation Administration initiative, title guidance. Job title guidance is a comparison of two or more titles to help campus partners distinguish between similar or confusing SJDs. The guidance is intended to assist with job analysis as it relates to title selection. At UW-Madison, job title guidance provides a “best practice” across colleges, schools, and divisions. Title Guidance is actively being worked on by the current Job Rotation Program Cohort 4 and we will share their progress as well as the materials developed so far for the HR campus community.

The presentation will include the currently identified title guidance areas as well as share expected future title guidance topics as received by our HR survey. We aim to share why title guidance is important, how the resources are being developed, and how to use the title guidance docs to aid in job analysis and title selection. Additionally, Compensation Administration will share our process for selecting a title based on a bulleted list of responsibilities as often provided to divisional HR by a supervisor/hiring manager. This includes sorting through the SJD library to narrow down the job group, subgroup, and ultimately title. Many factors are considered during job analysis, and you will find it is often more of an art, than a science.
