Dear Colleagues:

As you are aware, NKU’s Board of Regents approved a recurring 2% compensation pool for eligible staff and faculty, effective July 1, 2019.

The salary increase pool this year will be administered as a performance-based general increase. To be eligible for this 2% increase, employees must have been employed with NKU on or before January 7, 2019 (i.e. the first working day of the year) in a regular eligible position status, and continue to be employed with NKU in a regular position status as of July 1, 2019, the effective date of the increase. Further, employees must have a current performance evaluation on file, with an overall performance rating of “meets expectations” or higher. This means that all eligible employees who are meeting performance expectations receive an across-the-board 2% increase. The President’s Cabinet will receive a one-time lump sum payment in lieu of a recurring base increase.

The increase process will be administered by our Human Resources Department utilizing the Enterprise Compensation Management (ECM) module of SAP. Any questions regarding the salary increase process can be directed to Human Resources.

As I have mentioned before, we are working on a plan to begin to align our future compensation increases with the Success by Design strategic framework.  This is an important way to help guide our work in order to keep the strategic framework at the core of all that we do while rewarding the initiatives and accomplishments of all employees.

Thank you for all that you do for our students and NKU.

Sincerely yours,
