 Our Job Evaluation solution is the preferred technology partner to:

Our factor-based job evaluation/grading software solution helps assess jobs through an objective, systematic process of elimination, creating a measurement and description for every job, not for the person assigned to it. Used in government, schools and corporations, Job Evaluation assesses the relative value of jobs through a consistent set of factors, skills and requirements to align compensation strategies. Complete, fair and transparent, Job Evaluation can help to justify pay scales and eliminate gender bias in assignments and compensation.

Key Features

As a web-based system, our Job Evaluation solution dramatically reduces the need for trained resources, is objective, and removes the need for written Job Descriptions. It reduces the time to complete evaluations and produces defensible results via a transparent and more objective process.

 

  • Factor Schemes – based on a Job Evaluation Factor Elimination Scheme which assigns levels to multi-dimensional factors and point values to express their worth. 
  • Reports – produces several standard reports to support the Job Evaluation process as well as a full query and extract tool for ad-hoc reporting.
  • Support – Pilat provides clients with comprehensive support, before, during and after the implementation of the scheme.

What our clients say about us

“Gauge has enabled Police Scotland and the Scottish Police Authority to evaluate all of the discrete roles in a reasonably quick time frame, and it has successfully underpinned both our new pay and grading structure.”

Gary Durkin, Pay & Grading Manager

“We are pleased with our decision to utilise Gauge. It has helped us streamline our previous process allowing us the time and energy to focus on other impactful projects within our department.”

— Laurie Kelly, Benefits Officer

“The web-based nature of the system makes it easier for other members of the team to be involved, making the evaluation process more flexible and so less time consuming, meaning jobs can be evaluated and then recruited quickly.”

— David Plummer, Head of OD & HR

“I would recommend both Pilat and the software to a friend and colleague. It is a user-friendly job evaluation tool that enables Scottish Policing to manage its requirements for job analysis in supporting Police Staff pay. The software is robust, analytical and has superb reporting functionality.”

– Police Scotland

Job Evaluation Schemes

Our Job Evaluation software is used by organisations in both the public and private sectors. Whether you require a bespoke solution, designed for a particular industry, or would like to adopt a union approved factor-based scheme, we can help.

Pilat have worked in conjunction with the Local Government Association, Association of Colleges and supporting trade unions to create the National Joint Councils’ (NJC) Job Evaluation Scheme and Further Education Job Evaluation Scheme.

As well as developing a Fixed-Factor solution created for private sector organisations. This scheme can be tailored to meet the requirements of your industry.

Key Benefits

    • Fair, consistent and objective: The system asks about what is done by the Job Holder, not others’ subjective perceptions of the worth of those duties.
    • Effective safeguard: As the software measures the job, rather than the person, you can safeguard against potential discrimination challenges.
    • Easy: No requirement for a Job Description. In fact, Gauge produces a Job Summary.
    • Minimal training required: A Job Analyst inputs a Job Holder’s and her/his Manager’s responses to a set of carefully tailored questions under each of the factor headings.
    • Quick: Each Job Evaluation is typically completed in less than 60 minutes; responses to certain questions rule out the need to answer others.
    • Transparent and consistent: Job scores are directly linked to question responses.
    • Defensible: An ‘audit trail’ of answers to questions enables cross comparisons of Jobs.
    • Buy-In: Job holders feel ‘bought in’ as they can be directly involved in evaluating their own Jobs.
    • ‘Rank order’ of job scores:  Job score can then be used to design a grading structure.
