Compensation & Organizational Effectiveness

Vanderbilt University is a place where our employees are encouraged to develop, learn and grow, and explore careers. As an employer, we understand there are choices when choosing where to work and pursue a career path. We value that every employee is unique. At Vanderbilt, we create, foster and sustain opportunities as an employer of choice through:
  • Working and growing together as a community of communities... we are One Vanderbilt.
  • Providing a work environment where every staff and faculty member can be their authentic and best self, while providing the resources and opportunities to learn and grow.
  • Encouraging development, collaboration, and partnership both internally and externally while fostering the value that every member of the Vanderbilt community can lead and grow regardless of title or position.

We are committed to providing tools, resources, information, and opportunities so that our employees can realize their full potential. One of the ways we do this is through the delivery of a robust career framework built around employee mobility, learning, and growth - these efforts benefit our employees and our University so that we are more capable of recruiting, retaining, and rewarding a highly talented and diverse workforce.

Pilot Phase Two - Currently Under Way

Vanderbilt University Human Resources in collaboration with select units across campus are engaged in a pilot process, during which the University is administering facets of a new career framework.

Based on feedback from the Phase II framework rollout, HR is revising and incorporating information into related resources. HR will continue the work to partner with departments participating in the initial rollout to refine the approach and as we move forward with next steps of the project. Once all pilot phases are complete, informational and supporting resources will be published and available on this page.
