Personnel Systems

The State of Wisconsin authorized and directed the University of Wisconsin System to develop two distinct new personnel systems:

These new systems are to be implemented on July 1, 2015.


The two university personnel systems will be developed by taking the aspects of the unclassified and classified service that work best and creating one system of university employment.  The goal is to develop a process to identify personnel policies that have worked well – and that will continue to work well when more authority is delegated to the UW institutions. The systems will also maintain commitment to and the integrity of the UW System’s ongoing goal of a diverse and highly qualified workforce. Some specific objectives include:

  • simplification of titling structures
  • protection of existing employee rights
  • establishment of a compensation structure that enables the UW System to recruit and retain the best, most diverse, and most qualified employees
