Pay Grades and Job Value: How to Create a Compensation Program to Remain Competitive - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.


WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Learn how to best organize a compensation program using job value and pay grades.



With the onset of 2020, compensation professionals are likely reviewing pay ranges and thinking about job re-evaluation. Perhaps it is also time to review internal equity, or to add variable pay systems into the total reward compensation mix. You might be hoping that a change in your pay grade structure will result in maximizing employee productivity, and the retention of top talent.

Whether you want to reward performance, time, knowledge, skills, or competencies, determining pay grades is the first step to create an equitable, competitive compensation system. Without accurate pay grade determination, and accurately establishing pay ranges, it doesn’t matter how good your pay survey data is. Your current compensation can be too high or too low.

Determining pay rates for certain jobs is a balancing act that should be revisited regularly to create a great compensation program that meets your organization’s needs and that keeps and attracts the best employees.

Use this on-demand webinar to learn how to create an equitable, competitive compensation system. You’ll get vital tips on how to piece together the compensation puzzle, resulting in the best outcomes.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able to:

  • Recognize how to determine job grades in preparation for creating or revising a pay structure
  • Discern how pay structures are built, with examples of different methodologies, including variable pay
  • Determine when to pay above (or below) the market—and when it makes sense to pay out of range
  • Identify how pay grades influence performance/merit pay programs
  • Address pay discrepancies and inequities without creating legal liability
  • And more!
