Total Rewards & Compensation

Bentley's Total Rewards & Compensation Philosophy 

Bentley offers a “Total Rewards” package designed to attract, motivate, retain, and reward our employees. Our Total Rewards approach includes fair and competitive compensation, comprehensive benefits, career development and opportunities, generous paid time off, flexibility and work-life balance, a positive, engaging work environment and employee experience and a wide array of resources and facilities.

Bentley’s Total Rewards Philosophy for Staff and Faculty provides guidelines for how the University administers its compensation program for employees

Total Rewards | Compensation

Bentley’s compensation philosophy for all faculty and staff is market and merit based. Bentley is committed to attracting, developing, retaining and rewarding high quality, passionate faculty and staff members who support the educational mission and strategic goals of the university. To achieve that goal, it is Bentley’s objective to pay competitive salaries using comparison market medians as guidelines. On a regular basis, Bentley will review data for the relevant labor markets by using higher education and general industry salary surveys. The market data reviewed will depend on the nature of the position and available market matches.


Total Rewards | Benefits

Bentley is committed to helping our faculty and staff enjoy the best possible health and greatest wellbeing.  We offer a comprehensive, competitive benefits package that provides the flexibility to make the choices that best meet our faculty and staff’s needs. We compare our benefit programs to other at private higher education institutions to ensure overall we are being competitive. 



Total Rewards | Recognition

Employees expect—and deserve—to be recognized for their extra efforts. The On-the-Spot Rewards Program provides “in the moment” recognition for excellent performance and valuable contributions outside of the merit program.  By providing a Spot Bonus or Gift Card reward, managers have the opportunity to provide a meaningful “thank you” and connect the reward to the contribution and/or performance being recognized.  Eligibility, program details, and instructions are provided in the Policy.
