Walailak University: its minimum wage, employee compensation, and welfare

A total of 2,215 personnel at Walailak University comprises 135 executive positions, 594 academic personnel, 830 operating personnel, 179 temporary employees, 68 state enterprise employees, and 409 temporary (daily) employees.

The university has transparent and fair regulations on remuneration, framing the minimum and maximum payment rates of revenue based on the qualifications of the personnel.

(For more details and policies, see the document: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1ncwJK-Jm_a0OL4oydrArlYevtMb4nOU_/view) Fundamentally, all staff and faculty are paid based on the payment rates, which are 63.84% higher than the national minimum wage rate, and 15.61% higher than that stated in the Royal Decree on Maximum and Minimum Salary Adjustments for Civil Servants B.E. 2554. Individuals can track their salary increases through the online system that links to performance assessment.

In addition to a sufficient remuneration for living, the university also allocates a budget for welfare to support the personnel and their family. This provision helps reduce daily expenses and improve the quality of life — free medical services and health check-ups at WU Hospital, free dormitories, free sports and health center, air-conditioned coach transport service, affordable and quality canteen food courts, Walailak Park for recreation, and access to financial institutions within the university.

In brief, WU personnel are treated fairly regarding remuneration and welfare provisions that promote quality living.
