Duke University's IT Broadbanding Initiative

Friday, January 1, 1999

Abstract

In June of 1998, in an attempt to increase Duke University's ability to attract and retain talented information technology (IT) employees, a cross-functional team comprised of university IT and human resources staff, along with outside consultants, began designing a broadbanding and recognition program for IT positions. The team was challenged to identify a recognition and rewards strategy that enhanced Duke's ability to recruit and retain IT staff; establish a technical career path for talented IT staff; and create a flexible and competitive compensation program. This paper summarizes the author's presentation at EDUCAUSE '99 about the IT broadbanding initiative at Duke and its initial implementation.
