Pay Grade Structure

Hi,

I am setting up the pay grade structure. One alternative i have is to use descriptive terms in the PS Grade field and the numeric grades in the level field.

For example,

PS Grade: Top Mnt

Level : 10 - 12

PS Grade: Sen Mnt

Level: 7-8

PS Grade: Jun Mnt

Level: 4-6

PS Grade: Clerical

Level: 1-3

Now i understand that the level field is not meant for this purpose and is actually a subdivision of Grade. But my question is, what difference does it make? Will it possibly have an impact on Job Pricing and/or Salary Survey processes in the future? (which we have not currently configured).

Please share your opinions

thanks

    Hi..

    For each grade u have different levels... starting with different Basic Salary..... & other components.....

    pay scale group is a criterion used for grading job evaluation. A pay scale group is divided up into several pay scale levels.

    The pay scale level is a criterion for job evaluation within the pay scale group.

    Hi Zubair,

    When using pay grades the level field can be used for whatever seem fit for the company you are implementing for. For example in our case we used the pay grade level to be 80 to 04, ie: 80 = 80 percent of the salary at 100 percent for that pay grade.

    Make Sense.

      Hi

      T510 for blue collar/trainees and T710 for white collar/managers.

      You don't have to use T710 unless you are planning to register Pay Bands or implement Enterprise Compensation Management (ECM) in the future.

      ECM calculates a compa-ratio based on the pay band linked to an employee's Pay Scale Level.

      It's not a problem to start with T510 for all employees and then later on change to a combination of T510 and T710.
