ESU Classification and Compensation System:

This page contains information about ESU's compensation and classification system.  Content will be added to this page as it becomes available.


New Position Description Format:

Although the Job Analysis Questionnaires provided a lot of useful information which helped with the classification of each position, we think 13 pages might be a little excessive as we move forward.  Therefore, we have developed a new position description form, and it's only two pages long! The new form can be found here, or it is also located in the HR folder on the X: Drive.



11/20/2016 - New classification title will take effect

12/31/2016 - Individualized position descriptions available
