Promotions & Transfers
Supervisors wishing to request a promotion for an employee may do so during the performance evaluation process. Promotions are based on evidence of significant increases in job responsibilities. Requests for promotions are submitted to the appropriate Division Head along with the Promotion/Reclassification Request Form (pdf, 27 kb). Promotion Requests are reviewed as deemed appropriate by your Division Head and the Office of Human Resources, including but not limited to the performance appraisal process or as a result of a new or vacant position being posted.
All vacant and newly created positions will be posted on the Human Resources web page. Job postings will also be distributed to all departments on campus. Employees wishing to apply for a posted position must submit a resume to the Office of Human Resources. Only employees who have worked at WPI for a minimum of one year are eligible to transfer to another position.
