Your salary is just one part of your total compensation package. Total compensation consists of salary and employee benefits packages including medical and dental insurance, retirement, annual leave, sick leave, holiday pay, long term disability, life insurance, Employee Assistance Programs, flexible schedules, as well as employer-specific benefits like onsite childcare, tuition benefits, and the recreation center.
The State of Colorado's statutory compensation philosophy is to provide competitive total compensation in order to recruit, retain, and motivate a qualified workforce. Visit the State of Colorado Department of Personnel Administration's Compensation page for more information. Information on your individual employer paid benefits can be found on your pay advice, accessible from the myUCCS Employee Portal.
