Career Tracks

Career Tracks is being implemented as a replacement classification system for non-represented staff positions across the UC system, including the UC Davis Campus and UC Davis Health. The movement to an updated classification structure is meant to accurately describe jobs (see Career Tracks standards), align them with the competitive market and assign the same classification to comparable positions at all locations. The goal is for employees and managers to have a greater understanding of their roles and the steps needed for career development.

Since 2014, Career Tracks has been implemented in select departments. All departments will be fully implemented by December 2017. To support a successful implementation, we are seeking feedback on your experience with Career Tracks. Please take a few minutes to complete a short survey.

Career Tracks will help UC Davis Campus and UC Davis Health:

  • Standardize job classification levels, job descriptions, and positions systemwide.

  • Prepare job descriptions more quickly and easily.

  • Provide transparency within and across job families/functions.

  • Understand and explain the similarities and differences among specialties and levels.

  • Easily identify specific types of positions across both campuses.

  • Provide development paths through matrices that show progression of levels.

  • Compare specific titles to the labor market when matching jobs to survey data.

UC Davis is the first location to map both a campus and health system at the same time. There are approximately 6,000 non-represented positions between the campus and Health System that will be mapped into the Career Tracks job titles.
