SRP offers competitive pay and a comprehensive benefits package. Eligible employees are covered on their first day of employment for most benefits. Compensation SRP recognizes work output, rewarding skill, initiative, teamwork and flexibility. When dollars are available, a salaried pay system allows supervisors to give a little more each year to employees who demonstrate those competencies. Pay raises for hourly employees are set by contract, but the opportunities to advance ride on the same characteristics.

If SRP exceeds its projected target, the IPP is funded and awards of up to 9% of regular pay are based on performance measures.
