Human Capital Services

Compensation Strategy—Rediscover Total Rewards

Over the next few years, Human Capital Services will undergo a comprehensive initiative to review our rewards systems which will begin with developing job descriptions for all university support staff and unclassified professional staff positions. Unclassified professional staff with faculty status and faculty positions are not included in the study.

Along with developing job descriptions, this initiative also includes an analysis of market competitiveness and designing compensation plans that consider the correlation of total rewards to base pay. Additionally, HCS will create career plans that allow employees the ability to grow their career over time.  This multi-year initiative is titled 'Re-Discover Total Rewards'.

Human Capital Services encourages K-State employees to explore this and other associated Total Rewards web pages. Many web pages have been updated and contain new content, including the frequently asked questions.
