Classification at CCU

The State of South Carolina’s Office of Human Resources identifies and sorts positions according to a position classification system. Position classification is a system of identifying and describing the different kinds of work in an organization and then grouping similar positions together under common job titles and assigning each classification to a salary band. Clear-cut descriptions of positions and their qualification requirements provide a standard for hiring and for promotion. A classification system enhances the institution’s ability to recruit appropriately and to establish evaluation criteria. Each position is assigned to a classification according to the types of duties involved and the level of responsibility reflected in the position description.

The state provides us with broad specifications for each classification.
