Human Resources will review selected "benchmark" jobs annually. In addition, as part of the audit process, review of other positions will be done at the request of the Division/Department Heads.
- "Benchmark" jobs are those that represent many employees or for which survey data is readily available. These jobs form the anchor of the salary structure.
- "Benchmark" jobs will be compared through compensation surveys with labor market competitors.
Evaluation of "Non-Benchmark" Jobs
To supplement the benchmarking information, the College gathers job responsibility information through a Job Analysis Form.
Jobs are then evaluated through a systematic method of comparing certain criteria, called compensable factors, from one job to another. These criteria, in alphabetical order, are:
|Degree of Technical and/or Analytical Complexity||Physical Effects or Working Conditions|
|Education||Resourcefulness and/or Creativity|
|External Contacts||Student/Parents Interaction|
|Job Related Experience||Team Work|
Job evaluation does not focus on how well an individual performs a job, but rather factors such as, but not limited to, the skill and responsibility of the job itself.
The responsibilities for jobs without market pay information (called "non-benchmark" jobs) are compared to "benchmark" jobs. This comparison results in "non-benchmark" jobs being placed into the appropriate salary grade.
