Job Design and Evaluation Workshop

Job Design and Evaluation Workshop

Birches Group is pleased to announce our 2017 Calendar for Job Design and Evaluation Workshop. This course is to complement our Compensation Management Workshop, which has been embraced by the international development community during the last 12 months. Many participants in our Compensation Management courses indicated a strong interest in taking a detailed look at Job Design and Job Evaluation as a natural next step in building their HR expertise.

The curriculum focuses on topics that will help participants to fully understand and impact issues related to job design and job evaluation, which serve as building blocks to optimize organization design and impact the overall talent management strategy of your organization. The workshop will use the Birches Group Community™ job evaluation system, which underpins our survey methodology, as the framework for examining the design and evaluation of jobs.

We know from our survey experience that many, if not most, organizations in the development sector do not have a consistent, global approach to job design, so we expect that this workshop will meet a real need to help global organizations design, evaluate and organize jobs in ways that reflect the uniquely purpose-driven work that you do. And, if you have adopted the Birches Group job levels from the survey as a pro-forma grading system within your organization, this course will provide you with the necessary background to fully implement job levels that are adapted to your organizations specific needs.

“This course is an eye-opener and found it critical for HR in any urgent questions as Job Evaluation is the basis to attract, develop and retain talents. Birches team – keep up the good work. It is my hope that we will have another avenue to get similar training on other compensation & benefits subjects.” – Dubai training participant, November 2015

“The training will help NGOs to overcome some of the challenges in Job Design & Evaluation.” – Dubai training participant, November 2015

“Good training – more inclusiveness with need to look at jobs. Very informative sessions on job designs.” – Dubai training participant, November 2015

The Birches Group salary surveys, which are now being used by over 300 NGOs and other public sector organizations in 148 countries, will be our primary market data reference in the workshops. These surveys are consistent references to labor market data used by organizations in order to manage compensation across multiple countries and from year to year.  The availability of the data has illuminated the need in most organizations to develop good practices in using data well, in order to guide good management decisions.  These workshops are one step we are taking to help you build those good practices for your organization.
