A 21st Century tool for creating business advantage
Job Evaluation and Grade Structure Design – all can be delivered in just 6 weeks.
In the past, outside consultants would camp on your lawns and spend months if not years deploying their most junior staff in the lengthy exercise of preparing job descriptions and evaluating them using their proprietary tools. This is no longer tolerated nor is it necessary.
These days, businesses simply will not put up with the inconvenience, cost and upheaval.
Today, Job Evaluation, Grade Structure design and Market Pay Comparison can all be delivered within 6 weeks, without any reduction in quality or credibility.
Our consultants have carried out over 300 Job Evaluation projects, in every industry imaginable., from small charities to organisations with over 1 million employees. We have changed and honed our approach – what we do now looks nothing like the cumbersome processes of the past.
There is no longer any need to buy unwieldly, generic systems – its quicker and more effective to design a system which fits your business perfectly and ticks all of the Equal Value boxes, if these are of concern to you. We are also very aware of the need to understand gender pay gaps as well as all issues of Equal Value and always employ a Job Evaluation approach to ensure that you do the right thing, first time.
We help our clients to quickly produce the job information needed, create a great Factor Plan, and evaluate the jobs smoothly in a matter of days, all the time providing a complete audit trail.
For many companies, the most challenging issue is to reconcile the external “pay market” with internal “equity” – how jobs should be paid according to internal “worth”. We can help you to understand the market outside, decide where you want to pay in that market, and fit your philosophy into a sound internal, properly-evaluated structure. We can do this with minimum disruption and in a timescale measured in weeks.
Example: A technology company with no proper structures, with a chaotic market-only approach to annual pay increases. Proper, stable Job Evaluation, Grade Structure and Market comparison processes were designed and implemented in just 6 weeks.6 weeks..
