Job Enrichment Program

The Miami University Job Enrichment Program (JEP) is a voluntary incentive program that provides resources for professional learning to help the University develop and retain valuable Classified Staff members as well as maximize job performance and individual satisfaction. Staff are encouraged to enhance their knowledge and skills in ways that are meaningful and satisfying while fulfilling the mission and needs of the University.

Successful completion of Job Enrichment learning opportunities may result in a Job Enrichment Bonus, a Premium Pay Increase, or an Advanced Component Bonus

Participation in the JEP requires staff members to be honest about their efforts and accomplishments. Acts of dishonesty will result in suspension from participation in the JEP for a minimum of one year or a time deemed appropriate by the JEP Administrators. Dishonesty is any activity that tends to compromise the integrity of the JEP.
