State employees could receive a raise of up to four percent next year. Governor Mike Pence has authorized pay-for-performance increases that will kick in following evaluations next month.
Pence says "Indiana would not be a state that works without the dedication and commitment of our state employees. I am privileged to work alongside the Hoosiers who are the force behind the outstanding services and support the people have come to expect from their state government, and I am thankful for the opportunity to offer these raises based on performance for a job well done."
State workers meeting expectations will receive a two percent bump, employees exceeding expectations will get a three percent raise and outstanding employees will receive a four percent pay increase.
