A brief description of how the institution ensures that its lowest-paid workers (including contractors, if applicable) receive sustainable compensation:
Valencia offers our employees a total rewards package that includes: pay competitive with market rates; a robust employee wellness program; generous paid leave opportunities; tuition support for full time employees; and 100% employer paid medical, dental and basic life insurance premiums for full time employees. Additionally, Valencia is committed to ensuring all full time employees are paid above the current poverty levels, as established by the U.S. Department of Health & Human Services for a family of four. Valencia’s practice is to provide our employees with industry-competitive compensation that is aligned with our Strategic Learning Initiatives, goals and mission. In determining our compensation practices, we consider the following factors: compliance with all appropriate laws and regulations (including minimum wage and overtime requirements); external, internal and individual equity for employees (purchasing power); industry comparisons; and the college’s economic condition and competitive position. Valencia is committed to providing a clear and concise reference for fair compensation decisions. Our compensation system includes classification systems and published pay schedules for Faculty, Administrative/Professional, and Career Service employees. These are supported by periodic job analyses and market pay surveys, and the establishment and maintenance of job descriptions for all positions.
