Birches Group is pleased to announce our 2019 Calendar for the Job Design and Evaluation Workshop. This course focuses on the foundation of compensation setting and performance management- 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 this workshop will help global organizations design, evaluate and organize jobs in ways that reflect the uniquely purpose-driven work that you do.
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.
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.
“My colleague participated in the Nairobi Job Design and Evaluation workshop and I did observe positive differences in her work as an HR Manager after this training”
“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.”
“The training will help NGOs to overcome some of the challenges in Job Design & Evaluation.”
“I can confidently say that I greatly gained from the training and will definitely be implementing most of the training resources shared with us. The training course is very practical and aligned to current strategic HR thinking.”
“I have learned from the training how to develop job descriptions in more descriptive way and how to evaluate [jobs] based on the purpose and not the incumbent. The training helped me see the bigger picture [of the job] and will help me orient the staff in my organization to adapt with the system. I recommend [this course] for others because the training facilitation is practical and allows problem solving within HR functions to be more systematic and consistent.”

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.
