This workshop enables an organization to use a well tested process for establishing the relative worth of jobs within their business without the expense of implementing a proprietary job evaluation process. The outputs from the JE workshop can then be integrated into the organization’s salary system.
To give key managers an understanding of the basic principles of a salary system and to conduct a Job Evaluation exercise within the system
To rank the jobs in the organisation and grade them into groups of similar value
To provide a process for maintaining the system and evaluating new jobs
TARGET PARTICIPANT GROUP
For middle and senior managers within an organisation – or business unit – who have responsibility for managing the attraction, retention and development of staff and who are able to make informed judgements on nominated key job criteria. Some managers may have to leave the workshop when their own level of jobs is being evaluated by the most senior group. 8 – 12 participants is the ideal number.
0.5 day for about 20 different jobs. 1 day for about 40 – 50 different jobs.
