The course will cover the fundamental principles of Job Evaluation and create a level of understanding that will enable delegates to apply a number of different job evaluation methods including analytical and non-analytical approaches. Delegates will also learn how job evaluation links with pay and grading systems and how to turn job evaluation outcomes into appropriate pay and grading systems. The course will also address the motivational and internal political influences which can impact on the job evaluation process and outcomes.

What is Job Evaluation?

Job Evaluation is the process and systems used to compare one job to another within the same organisation to reach different job levels.  Job evaluation is about grading the job and not the person.  No individual efforts such as performance or personalities are taken into consideration in job grading. After attending this workshop, delegates would be able to understand the fundamental principles of job evaluation and will be equipped to utilise the Paterson Grading System and SST Systems. The Paterson Grading System of Job Evaluation is the most frequently used system in Southern Africa. The objective of the course is to help delegates to understand the application of the Paterson system in and the workplace, while focusing on various aspects of the Job Evaluation process. Job evaluation therefore rates jobs according to a planned procedure in order to examine the contents and requirements of jobs and how to measure these against a standard scale. This result in job grades, scores, levels or ratings whereby jobs can be compared with other jobs to determine their relative worth.
