Human Resources is pleased to announce the new Staff Compensation Program at Bentley, effective March 1, 2012, for non-executive, non-faculty and non-union employees. If you have any questions or feedback about the program, please contact Caroline Bombrun or your HR Business Partner.
Bentley’s compensation program is part of a “Total Rewards” package that includes competitive pay practices, generous time off, a comprehensive set of health and welfare benefits, and a wide array of resources and facilities available to employees.
Bentley strives to pay employees fairly and equitably based on their contributions, skills, performance and experience; competitive market data and internal equity; and business needs including available resources and strategic priorities. All employees will be paid at least at the minimum of their salary grade and employees generally will not be paid above the maximum of their salary grade.
Compensation at Bentley is also merit-based and the university is committed to rewarding high performers through its annual merit increase program.
