For the sake of clarity, employee motivation and avoiding any potential equal pay challenges, it is in your best interest to have a consistent, fair, and transparent pay structure throughout the organisation. We can either review and update your current pay strategy and structure, or implement a new one.
We would typically expect creation of a pay structure to be the last step in a process which also includes job evaluation and pay benchmarking. Job evaluation allows us firstly to establish the internal worth of specific posts; and benchmarking enables us to compare internal salaries to the wider market rate for comparable posts.
The combination of these two sources of information will assist in deciding how to most effectively structure pay. We will decide this in consultation with you to ensure any solution is realistic and suitably tailored to the needs of your organisation.
