A fundamental component of reward and HR management is a grade and salary structure, and these are often taken for granted. Rather than making changes, HR and reward professionals try to fit the ever-changing needs of their employees into a grade system that may not have been reviewed for many years. In an increasingly competitive environment, when you want to attract and retain the best individual employees and high-performers, having an effective and fair job evaluation and grading system is crucial to underpin best-practice reward policies and deliver pay-for-performance.
This 2-day Masterclass on Effective Job Evaluation and Grading Structures will provide a sound knowledge of job evaluation approaches and provide an understanding of how job evaluation fits into the broader context of human resources management, and to provide practical skills in the application of job evaluation systems. Most employers want to ensure that they can “attract, retain and motivate” the best employees and teams, and this course will cover the key areas in job evaluation tools and techniques and best-practice processes for evaluating jobs and placing them accurately into your overall grade structure. This course will explore the different types of job evaluation systems that are used globally, and give you a basic familiarization with the concept of job evaluation and a high-level appreciation of the most commonly used best-practice approaches (such as Hay, Mercer, Towers-Watson, etc).
