Supports reporting requirements
An accurate job evaluation system is vital for reliably reporting on data concerning employees. Increasingly, HR teams are being asked for information about diversity, job applicant tracking and data analysis. Being able to accurately reflect the different roles and the associated demographics across the organisation is important.
It is also vital for doing a comprehensive equal pay audit to ensure that comparable roles are accurately considered. Gender pay gap reporting is also a hugely topical requirement given that for companies with over 250 employees it will be compulsory from April 2018. Similarly, it is critical that when reporting on the gender pay gap, this calculation must only use truly comparable roles. Job families help to identify roles across the business that are on a par with one another, which correctly captures the information required and makes compliance much more straightforward.
