Webinar Materials:

Who are the people that do the work of higher ed HR? How does the composition of your HR department compare to those at other institutions? Do you have the right number of HR staff for the size of your institution?

In this free webinar, Adam Pritchard and Anthony Schmidt from CUPA-HR’s research team will take you on a visual journey through the data on the higher ed HR workforce.

Discover which specialization areas in HR are the most and least common. Find out how many employees the median institution has before adding a new HR staff member. Learn more about how the median salary for each specialization differs for HR employees at different career levels, from coordinator to supervisor to senior positions.

The data present a broad snapshot of higher education HR, including information about representation by race/ethnicity and sex; age and time in position; turnover; and ratios of HR staff to groups like faculty, all staff, and students. This webinar also highlights the chief HR officer position, examining pay equity and representation changes over the past decade.
