Merit Planning

Merit planning begins on November 9, 2020. Those that manage regular part-time or full-time employees will receive an inbox task in Workday to complete the merit increases. Those that manage student employees will receive a spreadsheet from HR with a list of your students so that you can assign the merit increases accordingly. Managers have until November 20 to complete merit planning. There will be no deadline extensions.

Beginning November 30, managers of regular part-time and full-time employees will be given access to employees' merit letters. Managers should meet with their employees to give them their merit letters and inform them of their merit increase. Employees will be able to access their individual merit letters on December 28.

Below is the merit schedule for 2020 along with additional details to help managers understand the process and what is expected of them. Please contact Noemi Paddock if you have questions regarding merit planning and Rainn Takashima if you have questions about Workday.
