About Career Roadmap - Human Resources at Ohio State

About Career Roadmap

With a launch targeted for mid-2022, Ohio State’s Career Roadmap will be a new approach for hiring, managing and developing staff. The scope of Career Roadmap focuses on staff positions across the medical center, main campus and regional campuses. It does not cover physicians, faculty, executives, athletic coaches, student employees or bargaining units.

Most large employers have a career framework and compensation structure. Today’s workforce expects this level of clarity and transparency. In 2008 and 2011 Ohio State culture surveys, more than 70% of staff responded that Ohio State does not have clear career paths and opportunities for promotion. Ohio State’s job classifications – a way to accurately define and evaluate the duties, responsibilities and authority level of jobs – lack uniform standards. This leads to inconsistent pay practices and the inconsistent use of job titles, contributing to unclear career paths for current staff and potential applicants.

Essentially, Career Roadmap is a recruitment and retention initiative to attract and keep talent at Ohio State.

Two important aspects to Career Roadmap will be a career framework and comprehensive job catalog. The career framework will establish transparent career paths and pay ranges to help staff chart a career path within the university and medical center. The job catalog will compile all staff positions into one comprehensive resource. The pay ranges in the catalog will be reviewed annually and updated as appropriate, assisting colleges and units with strategic resource planning. In addition, each Career Roadmap job will include physical or mental qualifications that are necessary to perform the essential duties of the job.

The career framework and job catalog will have important benefits across the university. Standardized pay ranges and consistent job functions will foster equity from one unit to another and help streamline review processes with simpler self-service for HR professionals. For recruitment and retention, Career Roadmap will inspire talent and help staff visualize a future at Ohio State.
