2019/07/22 – Career Roadmap function descriptions complete, mapping phase to start - Human Resources at Ohio State

Career Roadmap function descriptions complete, mapping phase to start

The first drafts of function and subfunction descriptions in Career Roadmap are now complete, and new information about the position mapping phase is also available. Position mapping will be the opportunity for managers, staff, unit HR partners and senior leaders to review and confirm how current roles align to Career Roadmap.

Career Roadmap will lead to a comprehensive job family model and pay structure for staff. A job catalog will provide visibility to career paths and foster consistent compensation practices across the university and medical center.

The new position mapping information includes a detailed timeline, an interactive slideshow and a selection tool to help stakeholders learn how they will be engaged.

Position mapping will take approximately 18 months. The extended time frame, starting July 2019, will engage as many stakeholders as possible in active dialogue and reviews. The input from each stakeholder group is important and builds upon the input from previous reviewers. New learning will emerge at each phase, and results will be calibrated for consistency across the university and medical center.

In September and October 2019, approximately 4,500 managers (including 1,500 faculty who manage staff) will review and validate the initial mapping, which will be completed by HR Compensation.

Positions not covered by Career Roadmap are faculty, physicians, bargaining unit members, student employees, athletic coaches and executives.

When complete, Career Roadmap will give staff and managers a powerful new tool to develop themselves and their teams and build successful career paths at Ohio State. Staff will be able to see where their position fits in the Career Framework and what is needed to grow professionally.

Career Roadmap implementation is happening concurrently with other organizational initiatives specific to business units and is unrelated to those initiatives.

Career Roadmap will not reduce base salary, and additional cost analyses will be conducted after unit leaders validate mapping results in late 2019.

Over time, Career Roadmap will enhance Ohio State’s reputation as an employer of choice and help leaders more effectively address workforce needs.
