University Compensation Study

Tennessee Tech University is reviewing the university’s current compensation plan and classification structure which are essential elements to attracting and retaining faculty and staff. 

To make progress toward this important goal, a full-time faculty and staff compensation and classification study is underway in partnership with Mercer, a recognized leader in higher education consulting. 

While this university-wide effort is being led by Human Resources, Tom Timmerman is a member of the project team, which will provide input, guidance, oversight, and assistance to Mercer, our consultant partner, to identify strategies and options for upgrading or revising the current compensation model and classification structure.
