In the event that a staff member receives an offer of employment from another department, school or center within Penn or from outside the University and the department wishes to retain the individual, a request for a counter offer may be considered in order to retain the individual in SAS.
For consideration of a retention offer the following must be provided:
- A copy of an offer letter to include the job title and accompanied by the duties of the offered position.
- The current PIQ and if appropriate, proposed PIQ to justify the increased retention salary.
- Documentation from the appropriate chair or director justifying why it is important to make a retention offer—focusing on the skills that are so critical to the School/University that a retention offer should be considered.
- A current performance appraisal with a minimum rating of “consistently meets and frequently exceeds the established goals/expectations for the position.”
