Competitive Compensation - Human Resources at Ohio State

Competitive Compensation

The Ohio State University provides market competitive compensation to faculty and staff employees. Specific pay rates are based on an individual’s education, experience, specialized skills or other relevant factors.

While an employee’s profile in Workday references pay grades, current employees should direct questions regarding compensation to their manager or HR consultant.

Job applicants will be provided with a position’s target hiring range during interviews as part of the recruiting process.

The salary structure for Ohio State’s non-bargaining unit staff is being redeveloped. That salary structure, in addition to those for bargaining unit and student employees, will launch concurrently with the implementation of the University’s Career Roadmap initiative. Pay ranges may not be visible until that time.

In autumn 2020, The Ohio State University implemented a $15-per-hour minimum wage for regular and term staff employees, including Communications Workers of America bargaining unit staff. Temporary jobs were not included, with the exception of patient care associates and internal resource pool positions at the medical center. Students who work in staff positions were included. Positions classified as student jobs were not included.
