In 2017 the University of California launched Career Tracks, a job classification system for staff not represented by a union. The goal was threefold: (1) to give employees better-defined career paths; (2) to better-align university compensation with the market; and (3) to better-reflect primary job responsibilities for each employee. Additionally, Career Tracks is meant to promote greater transparency in hiring and promotions. Employees can now chart their UC careers via a hierarchy of job families and functions, each with specified education levels, scopes, and responsibilities. And while the initial feedback has been positive, the overall success of the program remains to be seen.
