Lehigh University's ability to fulfill our mission and strategic plan depends on our ability to recruit, hire, and retain quality employees.
The guiding principles of our staff compensation plan are:
- Provide competitive reward opportunities to attract, motivate, retain, and reward talented employees
- Provide competitive salary levels which reflect the economic value of the job as well as the type and quality of work performed
- Provide staff pay structures positioned at the median competitive salary level
- Provide individual salary adjustments based on meritorious performance and contributions to the accomplishment of department and institutional goals.
We are committed to providing a staff compensation plan that is both fair and equitable while recognizing university constraints. Lehigh’s staff compensation plan combines a market-referenced job evaluation process with a flexible salary structure that reflects best practices in compensation design.
Lehigh’s staff compensation plan is designed to support the Staff Employment Value Strategy (SEVS).
