A brief description of how the institution ensures that its lowest-paid workers (including contractors, if applicable) receive sustainable compensation:
Williams compensation policy is as follows: "Williams is committed to realizing its vision of educational excellence. The College recognizes that the people who make up its faculty and staff are central to achieving this objective. Williams seeks to offer a competitive "total rewards" compensation package designed to address the diverse and evolving needs of its faculty and staff. The institution supports a total compensation system that (1) is designed to attract, retain and reward people who are committed to Williams goals and values and who are capable of achieving performance objectives; (2) provides compensation consistent with a position's contribution to the institution; (3) is aligned with relevant external markets and the availability of institutional resources; and (4) allocates compensation in a fair, equitable, and consistent manner." Human Resources annually does market comparisons and adjusts compensation when necessary. Living wage standards are taken in to consideration, and spot adjustments are made when necessary.
