Job Leveling

What is job leveling?

Job leveling is a systematic approach to allocating value to specific positions within an organization in an impartial and precise manner.

What is a job leveling matrix?

Job leveling matrix, also known as job classification, is a technique used by HR experts to describe positions, create career paths, and establish organizational hierarchies. For instance, job grading inside the HR department can look like this: 

  • Level 1: HR Assistant. 
  • Level 2: HR Generalist. 
  • Level 3: HR Manager.

Is job leveling the same as job evaluation?

Essentially, yes. Job evaluation, often known as job leveling, estimates the relative value of various positions within an organization. The goal of job evaluation is to assist you in honestly assessing particular jobs and avoiding discrimination or prejudice.
