IPE Role Analysis and Job Evaluation Workshop

Mercer IPE Role Analysis and Job Evaluation Workshop

17 April 2015  Singapore, Singapore

    • Role analysis is an important and critical exercise for organizations because it helps cascade overall strategic plans into company roles and responsibilities. A role analysis exercise ensures synthesis of functional objectives into “areas of responsibility” that are understood down the line and that capture the essence of the function. Likewise, job evaluation is critical when establishing a benchmark for compensation comparison. Organizations today are establishing best practices by utilizing position evaluation to:


      • Identify organizational issues and determine the need for restructuring.
      • Develop an objective reference to solve job-titling issues.
      • Create a starting point for position/person profiles.
      • Establish a reliable base for an equitable salary structure.
