2.0. Purpose of the Job Evaluation and Salary Survey

BGI is conducting a job evaluation exercise in order to attract, retain, and retain talent within the organization while operating in a competitive labor market. As a result, BGI intends to carry out a job evaluation exercise in order to determine the following:

  • Examine the current role descriptions in BGI and identify new competencies and skills for each specific job description.
  • Conduct a thorough review of our grading structure to ensure alignment with our transition to a more competency-based recruitment process.
  • Evaluate the current job’s relevance in light of the changes that affect the position
  • Conduct a salary survey to compare BGI salaries to the industry

3.0.       Objective

The goal of the job evaluation is to conduct a thorough review and evaluation of all BGI positions in order to ensure alignment of structures, functions, and salary scales, as well as to address inequities and disparities in similar job functions, while keeping in mind the basic concept of equal pay for equal value of work.

Specific objectives include the following:

  • Understanding the organization’s current structure in order to establish accurate job matches by examining each job in the context of other jobs with which it interacts
  • Examine the current role descriptions in BGI and suggest a new role description.
  • Determine the qualifications and skills required for each position.
  • Determine the current job’s relevance in light of the changes that affect the position.
  • Examine the current grading process and make changes as needed, or develop a new job grading process based on revised competency-based job descriptions.
  • Create a logical and consistent Job Evaluation framework on which BGI can base future job grading decisions.
  • The framework will be comprehensive, including competencies and other relevant criteria, and will respond to the organization’s new realities; it will also be suitable for future BGI workforce and role expansions.
  • Ensure fairness and equality in job grading, both among current employees and in comparison to newly hired employees
  • Carry out an alignment exercise, adjusting current staff job levels to address inequities and disparities between roles within the same job family and across the organization, and fully recognizing roles and responsibilities assumed.
  • Conduct a salary survey to compare BGI salaries to appropriate local and regional comparators.
  • Make suggestions for salary scale adjustments and create a plan for implementation.
