Advisory booklet - Job evaluation: considerations and risks

It often takes time and a lot of patience but a good job evaluation scheme can form the basis of a fair pay system. It's also a way for getting a hierarchy of jobs on which to base a grading structure.

Many employers carry out job evaluations when:

  • Deciding on pay and grading
  • Making sure there is a fair and equal pay system
  • Deciding on benefits - such as bonuses
  • Comparing pay against other companies
  • Reviewing all jobs after a major change within the company
