Compensation and Performance Management


The objectives of Boston College's compensation system are to attract and retain qualified individuals and to motivate them to perform at a high level. To accomplish these goals, the Compensation Department conducts an ongoing assessment of relevant external markets for various occupational groups and establishes pay practices for Boston College that reflect a competitive position in those markets. On an individual basis, salaries will reflect qualifications, skills, performance, and competitiveness with the appropriate job market.


In order to meet these objectives, the Compensation Office provides the following services:

  • Design, implementation and administration of compensation/performance management programs to include the annual merit review process and establishment of salary ranges
  • Competitive market analyses through participation in salary surveys and analyses of external data
  • Job analysis and classification of staff positions to include compliance with the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)
  • Consultation on organizational and job design
