Managing Job Evaluation and Grades and Job Descriptions as part of Compensation Management to Meet Business Needs and Drive Employee Performance and Engagement

Job Evaluation and Grade Structures Masterclass


A fundamental component of reward management and HR management is a grade and salary structure, and these are often taken for granted.  Rather than make 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.

Course Objectives

This course 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 two-day 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, both globally and in Asia, 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).


You will gain hands-on practice in evaluating jobs and this course is suitable for both HR generalists and remuneration specialists, and the aim of this course is to enable you to get a better understanding of how to evaluate jobs and how to design a grade structure that will help you to attract, motivate and retain employees.  This course is aimed at both HR Generalists and Reward Specialists to help you design and review your grading structure to ensure you evolve with a best-practice system.
