HR Classification and Compensation

Total Compensation Overview

Total compensation shows an employee’s salary combined with what UA, as the employer, pays for various benefits.  The following charts show examples of total compensation paid by the university to employees in eight different employment categories.   The charts are examples and are based on FY16 average salaries, and the most common retirement plans for the category.   As a result, actual individual total compensation may vary somewhat.

UA benefits incorporated in the charts include the university’s contributions to retirement, UA pension, health care, annual leave, sick leave, and other valuable employee benefits, such as the tuition waiver.   UA employees have traditionally valued their benefits, but may not be aware that benefits comprise up to 44% of their total compensation!
