Benchmarking & Slotting Jobs: How To Seamlessly Mesh The Two To Optimize Compensation Success
It makes sense for HR to establish benchmarks for your organization’s base pay levels and to compare your levels to others in your recruiting area and industry. If what you’re offering isn’t stacking up to your competitors, you’re likely to lose talent to other organizations.
Finding surveys to compare your pay grades with others can be daunting, but worthwhile to optimize your compensation strategy. In addition, job slotting can fill in the gaps in a compensation plan when a job is so unique you can’t find comparisons in the market. HR can set the pay grade by evaluating these in accordance with current benchmarked jobs within the organization.
To do so, HR must create clear job descriptions and determine factors that can affect pay. In this way, HR can use the benchmarked positions to determine a pay rate which is competitive in the marketplace and internally equitable. This process can help minimize the risk of discrimination or other complaints, and can help ensure your organization has a fair compensation policy.
Combining the two approaches—benchmarking and slotting—can provide needed assurance that your organization is competitive within the industry and less exposed to discrimination claims. In addition, you are less likely to be embroiled in salary negotiation hassles. Having a fair and competitive compensation strategy in place also helps ease the hiring process and motivate employees.
It sounds like a tall order—and it can be if you aren’t prepared.
