Understanding Job Evaluation

​Job evaluation is a systematic method of determining the value or worth of a job in relation to other jobs in an organization. It attempts to make a systematic comparison between jobs to assess their relative worth for the purpose of establishing a rational wage structure. The objective of this course is to enlighten participants in understanding the methods of how jobs are being evaluated and compared against each other to assess their relative worth. In many organizations the relative worth of jobs is based on the rule-of-thumb by comparing job titles generally used in the job market. In Company ‘A’, the human resource practitioner may be given the title General Manager Human Resource, while his counterpart in Company ‘B’, is called Vice-President Human Capital Development. In reality, are the two jobs the same or similar in terms of their value or worth? The course is participative and participants will be exposed in the actual methods of how the value or worth of jobs are being determined. It is expected that at the end of the course participants will have grasped the principles and methods that determine the worth of any job.
