In the salary system of the Finnish universities, the salary of an employee is composed of a job requirement component and a personal performance component. The salary system of the Finnish universities comprises two separate evaluation systems: an evaluation system for the teaching and research staff, and an evaluation system for the other staff (administrative and auxiliary staff). Based on a set of pre-defined criteria, the employer decides which of the systems is applied to an employee.
The salary system of the Finnish universities is applied to an employee when the employee's contract of employment is made for a period exceeding six months. In addition, the university has an evaluation system for the teaching staff at the teacher trainings schools..See further information on salary and evaluation in Heimo (UEF´s intranet).
