Working/Business TitlesTo create a simpler and more flexible staff compensation system, UVM has a limited number of job standards and makes use of business titles, as appropriate.
Business titles should be developed in the context of the following guidelines:
- Business titles should be consistent with other titles in higher
education and throughout the University; therefore they must be
approved by Classification & Compensation.
titles will be used on business cards, job postings, and
the phone book. System titles will be used in the Human Resource
Information System (HRS), position descriptions, and job standards.
Business titles will appear on Personnel Action forms in addition to
- Business titles should describe the position responsibilities and
reflect the job family to which the position has been assigned.
- Business titles should be short and should communicate an
understanding of the position. In order to be used in the phone book
and/or on the web, titles should be short enough so that their
abbreviated versions are understandable. (Our mainframe computer will
limit the title/abbreviated title to 25 characters.)
- Business titles should not replicate an existing HRS title.
Following are examples of title ‘descriptors’ for each job family. These examples are just that: examples. This is not intended to represent a finite list from which to choose.
