Salary review

Below you find information about the salary review at KI.

The next salary revision will take place in the Autumn of 2024. 

The next salary review will take place in the fall of 2024.

From the beginning of October, performance management dialogs between manager and employee will be held, these should be completed by November 15. Employees covered by the salary review must have a performance management dialog 2, this is mandatory.

The new salary will apply from October 1, 2024, although it will be paid later.

Collective agreements regulate the salary revision and are signed centrally for the state and locally for KI between the employer and Saco-S, OFR/S,P,O and Seko.

Preparation for you as an employee

Both your manager and you as an employee are expected to prepare for performance management dialog 2

  • Be familiar with how the salary review works, please read this digital training 
  • Go through KI's salary criteria and the template for salary reviews (see different templates for different groups below, will be uploaded in the early fall) and think about the following: What tasks have I performed since the last review? Have I taken on any new tasks? With what results have I completed my tasks? How have I contributed to a good working environment?
  • Look at salary statistics (to be uploaded in early fall 2024)
  • If you want more information about performance management dialog 2, read the Salary setting policy at KI (under documents).


Payment of salary

The salary is paid when the salary is set for all Saco-S or non-unionized members of the department. Any disagreeing members of Saco-S are negotiated separately and paid when all disagreeing members have been negotiated.

For members of OFR/S, P, O or SEKO at KI, the salary is paid when it has been negotiated for all members of the respective union.

Salary revision for doctoral students

Doctoral student salaries are revised in connection with the salary review following negotiations between the employer and the union. Salaries are paid retroactively from October 1, 2024. Information about the steps can be found in the quick guide below.
