Job Evaluation is a systematic method of rationally assessing the relative sizes of jobs within an organisation by comparing one particular job, a group of jobs, or even a type of work with other jobs. Jobs area analysed to assess the degree to which the 10 factors known as Education, Experience, Complexity, Scope, Problem Solving, Freedom to Act, Impact/Results Decisions, Interpersonal Skills, Authorities and People Management are present (Strategic Pay).
As we continue our journey towards a ‘Public Service Excellence’, in March 2019, colleagues from the Public and Private Sectors attended, and successfully completed the Job Evaluation training which was delivered by Strategic Pay. As a result, we now have 47 certified Job Evaluators who form the membership of the Job Evaluation Committee (JEC). The Job Evaluators participate in one of 6 groups that meet twice a week (Tuesday and Thursday) to evaluate Job descriptions.
‘As the facilitator of the JEC, I have seen the growth and confidence of our job Evaluators which is very encouraging. Their active participation in the group discussions shows their passion to become competent Job Evaluators, giving them greater appreciation of the purpose of Job Descriptions and the respect that should be given to writing a job Description that reflects the purpose and complexities of the role’ says Maybelline Bullen.
