Compensation

Valuing Your Contribution to the National Academies

The National Academies’ policy on compensation strives to ensure base pay is competitive with the marketplace. Our policy also demands that we consider internal equity for similar jobs within the National Academies. We reward the performance of individual employees via the merit cycle process and promotional increases.

Because of the diversity of our employees and the nature of our work, when comparing ourselves to the marketplace, we evaluate the compensation practices of a variety of employers.
