INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Gov. Mike Pence said Tuesday he plans to distribute the stateâ€™s pay for performance raises.
The pay raises are based on an employeeâ€™s job performance. Former Gov. Mitch Daniels authorized the increases in December.
Pence says he will continue to give out raises based on job performance. About 26,000 state employees are eligible for the pay for performance increase based on their hire dates; the state will spend an additional $38 million on pay raises.
"The state of Indiana has one of the most talented, skilled and effective workforces in the nation," Pence said in a press release. "It's important to reward those who do a top-level job to help make Indiana a better place to live."
The release said employees who are evaluated as outstanding will receive an 8 percent increase. Approximately 5 percent of employees are expected to be in this category. Employees who exceed expectations will earn a 5 percent raise. This is approximately 10 percent state employees. Employees who meet expectations will receive a 3 percent raise. This is approximately 75 percent of employees. Employees who do not meet expectations or need improvement will receive no increase. This is approximately 10 percent of employees.
The increase will appear on this weekâ€™s paychecks.
