Human Resources Portal
ODU actively seeks to attract and retain an accomplished, diverse workforce supporting a multitude of programs engaging faculty, classified and hourly employees. Toward this goal, the Department of Human Resources provides consultation to managers and supervisors, recognizing that compensation plays a critical role in this process. This site provides a variety of information to assist managers in understanding pay practices and position classification in support of their requests and needs.
The pay system for classified positions is based upon the position's role title and the state's classification system. The position's role title is based upon complexity, results and accountablity stated in classified employee's official position description. Classified employees may view their job descriptions via the online PAPERS system through the Human Resources portal.
Each year, supervisors and classified employees will review their position descriptions and certify that they are accurate. If your job has been changed significantly for an extended period of time, you should discuss these changes with your supervisor. If appropriate, your supervisor will submit a revised position description on-line to Human Resources for their review.
