A brief description of the standard(s) against which compensation was assessed:

Stonehill College's compensation plan compares with other higher education institutions in the Boston area and northeast region. Compensation is market-driven and evaluated by an outside consultant. Wages are evaluated by position. The lowest paid positions on campus are above the local minimum wage.

The College has a broad band salary program. Positions that fall into classifications, other than faculty or bargaining unit, fall within the salary bands. A broad band system is a flexible system and various factors must be taken into consideration when making salary decisions, such as market data, internal equity and skill set. Therefore it is imperative that supervisors/directors partner with human resources to determine salaries.
