Most importantly, we look forward to listening to employees and collaborating with the University's Deans, department heads and other leaders to ensure new approaches are simple, flexible, and equitable. We expect that the result of this project will be a more satisfying work experience at Auburn, and better tools to help managers and all employees improve performance to help fulfil Auburn's mission."
"Our Auburn University consulting team is comprised of a solid group of professionals with expertise designing, developing, and delivering systems in compensation, classification, and performance management," says Farmer.
