Signing Bonus

With the prior approval of Human Resources, units may offer a signing bonus as an incentive to prospective employees who possess skills that are in high market demand. The amount of the signing bonus should generally be in the range of 5 to 15% of the proposed starting salary, but there is considerable flexibility and latitude for responding to highly competitive cases. Individual units are responsible for funding of the signing bonus. Units should contact the Human Resources Analyst assigned to their specific vacancy for more information and assistance in offering a signing bonus.
