Work. This is how organisations create value. And any organisation that wants to maximise its value has to be able to analyse, understand and measure it. This, however, can be difficult to achieve. In most organisations, structures and roles have evolved organically and inconsistently over time, and the approaches used for tracking work can be inconsistent, outdated and confusing.
We bring order to this chaos by creating an analytical framework that helps organisations make informed decisions about how to deploy and organise their people. Our work measurement approach optimises value by having the right people with the right capabilities in the right place at the right time – and further ensures they are appropriately rewarded for the value they create. And because we are experts in people and how they work, we also help to apply this framework across the range of workforce management processes - talent acquisition, talent development, performance management, assignment planning, reward and engagement.
Key offerings include:
Job evaluation. Our Guide Chart – Profile Method® of job evaluation is the foundation for determining appropriate levels for each role.
Job analysis and design. We distinguish between well-designed and poorly-designed jobs to put people in a position to succeed.
Grade structure design. We build job grade structures that reflect an organisation’s unique organisation structure, culture and pattern of job evaluations.
Career frameworks. Our organising framework of work levels creates a “common work language”, to be used across the business, and a platform for multiple HR and talent management processes.
Job family modelling. We build job family models that are flexible and easy to apply, reduce the need for individual job descriptions and provide a platform for talent management and career planning.
Job-person fit. We help determine which competencies, skills and talent profiles will determine success in a role, helping organisations to get the best fit between the talents of individuals and the work to be accomplished.
Organisation design. We determine if organisations have the right number of roles in the right places at the right level of work. We also help determine if there are gaps or redundancies in the design of organisations.
Equal pay for equal work. We put in place robust methods for measuring jobs that ensure organisations pay every individual fairly and equally for the work that they do.
