State employees eligible for raises in 2016
By Rachel Hoffmeyer
INDIANAPOLIS – State employees could see a boost in pay next year.
Gov. Mike Pence announced Tuesday state employees who meet expectations will receive a 3 percent raise. Employees who exceed expectations will receive a 4 percent raise. Those who are considered outstanding will receive a 6 percent raise.
In a letter to state employees, Pence said he was authorizing raises because of the “exemplary job” done by state employees.
“Indiana is a state that works because our dedicated servant-leaders strive to collaborate for the greater good,” wrote Pence. “I am privileged to serve along side you.”
Raises will be determined by employee performance evaluations that will be completed in January.
