When most employees hear the term compensation, they typically only think of the money they receive in their paycheck each payday; however, Total Compensation goes beyond salary-it is the comprehensive pay package for employees. At Virginia Tech, this includes all forms of money, benefits, services, resources, and other perks for which employees are eligible.

Virginia Tech employees enjoy a total compensation package that far exceeds the value of their base salary alone. To help current and prospective employees understand the complete value of their compensation package, the Department of Human Resources has created an interactive tool, the Total Compensation Estimator. This tool provides a more complete picture of the value of an employee’s total compensation package at Virginia Tech.
