The University has engaged the services of a compensation consultant, Lockton Company, based in St. Louis, Missouri, to study University of Southern Indiana support staff salaries and total reward structures. Lockton has worked in the higher education community throughout the Midwest, including recent contracts for similar studies with Washington University, Saint Louis University, Misericordia and Centre College. While salaries and total reward structures have been reviewed for some segments of the University, this is the first study of this kind for support staff.
No one’s position will be eliminated as a result of this study. Rather, the goal is to come away with a salary model that will guide future decisions related to hiring and salary progression for support staff. Results also will influence the University’s discussions regarding issues of salary compression, career development and total rewards (i.e. salary and benefits), and the resources and priorities required for addressing any issues.
Six town hall meetings were held on Wednesday, January 31 and Thursday, February 1.
All support staff personnel and their respective supervisor(s) were invited to attend one of these sessions, which was facilitated by Lockton Company, discussing the the support staff engagement survey findings and the results from the study.

Due to space limitations, the meetings were open to support staff and their supervisors only.
To ensure the study is informed and transparent, a steering committee was established in January of 2017. Steering committee members have worked to ensure the project’s goals are achieved, key milestones are delivered and have collaborated directly with Lockton. We are pleased so far with the enthusiasm from departments and employees across the University to participate in this important work, and to have Staff Council leadership represented on the steering committee.
