Your rate of pay is determined by the pay grade that is assigned to the job you are holding. The pay grade is determined through a process called job evaluation (JE).
JE is the process of systematically determining the relative worth of jobs to create a job structure for the organization. The evaluation is based on a number of factors including:
Once the content of a job is evaluated, a pay grade is assigned, and a corresponding salary is set from the salary grid.
JE and salary administration guidelines are in place to ensure appropriate levels of pay are in place, and pay practices are applied consistently with job changes such as promotions, meeting internal equity and compliance principles.
