Title and Total Compensation Project


The University of Wisconsin is embarking on a complete redesign of its current title and total compensation structures. The goal of the study is to modernize the existing title and compensation programs which will, in turn, attract and retain the best talent for the organization. UW System and UW-Madison have partnered in this joint endeavor.

The TTC Project is an extension of the UPS and HR Design projects, which created personnel systems separate from the State. A new job framework has been designed to organize work preformed, create concise job descriptions, and provide exciting career paths at UW. The new job framework and standard job descriptions will allow UW to remain relevant and competitive in the market.

Pay and benefits make up total compensation. UW jobs will be compared with similar jobs on the market to create a market-informed compensation structure.


Be a Navigator: Employee Involvement

Employee involvement is essential to the success of the project. The project has already engaged UW employees in project team work, interviews, forums, listening sessions, and trainings.
