Navigating Compensation and Pay: A Working Session

Tuesday, March 28 | 8:30AM–9:15AM ET | Room 552
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation or Panel Session

The job market continues to be in flux. IT jobs are particularly susceptible to market trends as demand for skills intensifies in all sectors. Traditionally higher education has been at a disadvantage. However, salary is only one driver people are considering when making a job change. Work/life balance and flexible work arrangements are increasingly equally important. In this arena, higher education can be a viable and desirable option. This combination of factors compels HR and IT leaders to work closely to advocate for the best possible hiring and retention climate. Join us to practice navigating these issues with case studies drawn from actual experiences and engaged discussion. Participants will work through several scenarios, with HR and IT leaders serving as facilitators. Questions, insights, and ideas are welcome and encouraged. 

Learning Objectives

  1.  Gain strategies for managing challenging hiring situations
  2.  Develop a framework for a productive relationship with HR
  3.  Practice navigating these issues with other information professionals
