Compensation & Classification

Career Tracks

Career Tracks is the new classification framework and structure that is being implemented around the UC system. UCSB has been preparing for Career Tracks implementation for several years. We ran a pilot implementation for the Office of Research in 2016, socialized the new structure and job mapping with our divisional Control Points in Spring 2017, and are working toward campus-wide implementation in 2018.

CT Training for Managers

The next step in the Career Tracks project is to train department and unit managers in the Career Tracks classification framework, providing them with the time and resources to review and weigh in on how the jobs in their areas fit within this new market-based classification system. ****Please note that these trainings are for a pre-selected audience and by invitation only. Additional trainings will be provided for all employees prior to final implementation.

There will be a two-part training, and attendance at both sessions is required.
