Evaluation systems normally use a set of formal and systematic procedures to perform a comparison of roles. As such, evaluation is primarily concerned with the definition of the relative status of a role, and not with a set of absolutes. The objective of all evaluation systems is to place a role in a grading or salary structure.
There are two main types of evaluation system:
|Factor||Key roles are examined factor by factor and a rank comparison order produced for each factor. A complex comparison of weighted factors then follows.|
|Points Rating||A wider range of factors is used. Each factor is weighted and has a numerical scoring system. The total points scored determines the placement of the role in a grade or salary structure.|
