Career Roadmap resuming development with 2022 launch timeline

Following the pause for Workday implementation, Career Roadmap is resuming activity with a new launch date in early 2022.

When launched, Ohio State’s Career Roadmap will be a new approach for hiring, compensating 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.

The immediate next steps are for leaders to complete position mapping reviews in their college or business unit. HR business partners will work with leaders to complete that phase in early summer 2021.

The supervisor/manager and employee review period will take place in fall 2021. During that phase, employees will have the opportunity to see new pay ranges and how their position is mapped to the new structure. A feedback process will be included for those who believe a mapping changes is needed.

When implemented, Career Roadmap will help modernize Ohio State’s compensation and job classification system. 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.

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 Career Roadmap website is the primary source for information about the initiative. Key topics include titling and the job catalog. The resources page (with videos and fact sheets) and FAQs are also helpful tools.

All of these efforts will help realize the promise of Career Roadmap – to provide visibility to career paths for staff and foster equitable, consistent compensation practices across the institution.
