Introducing the Community™ Platform for Integrated Workforce Management

Most of you know us for our compensation and benefits surveys covering over 150 labor markets in the developing world.  But there is more to Birches Group than just data.

Our Community™ Platform includes four components:

  • Community™ Jobs – A simple and straightforward job evaluation system based on just three factors
  • Community™ Market – A linkage to our existing labor market data
  • Community™ Skills – A tool to measure employee skill levels, linked to job levels
  • Community™ Performance – A 360-degree performance management system, anchored in the Community™ job levels

All the Community™ modules are based on the same three factors which define work:

and make use of fourteen standard job levels (which can be broad-banded):

The application of Community™ job levels provides an organizational framework to examine job relationships both internally and externally and provides a means to determine appropriate compensation levels through Community™ Market.

Community™ Skills enables an organization to assess employee skills with respect to their current job and develop an overall capacity measure for the organization. Community™ Performance measures the achievements of the organization in a given performance year and captures individual contributions towards those achievements.

By extending the factors which establish levels of work through to a definition of corresponding skills and the measures against which performance is assessed, the Community™ platform integrates all human resource management functions from organization design and compensation to recruitment, development, training and recognition in the Skills module and finally reward through the Performance module.

By keeping the structure simple, resting on three factors, it empowers managers and provides transparency to staff.  It removes the opaque nature of job evaluation that has existed in the past, strengthens the utility in setting market comparisons and provides a practical guide to staff skills development and reward.

Birches Group will be rolling out the new integrated Community™ platform to our clients very soon! Keep subscribed to our newsletter for more updates or contact us for more information.

NEW! Integrating HR Workshop- October 1-5, 2018

Birches Group is pleased to announce our first 5-day workshop: Integrating HR. The course combines all three current workshop offerings- Job Design and Evaluation, Compensation Management, and Recognition and Reward, featuring comprehensive discussions around 4 main topics in Human Resources, namely: jobs, markets, skills, and performance.

The curriculum focuses on an integrated approach towards these four areas because we recognize that HR professionals in any sector could only truly emerge as strategic partners within their organizations if they are not only able to overcome challenges in each of these areas, but also be able to link them together.

The workshop is built on Birches Group’s integrated Human Resource platform – Community™. The Community™ application will be used across the job evaluation, skills assessment, and performance evaluation exercises. Participants will also be exposed to a number of practical exercises that are designed to allow attendees to quickly apply their learnings. Diagnostic exercises will also help participants examine their own based on the practices raised for each module of the workshop.

Lastly, a case study of a fictional international NGO country office, has been developed based on Birches Group’s extensive work in this sector. This fictional organization, WeHelp, will serve as a common reference for the different practical exercises.

Join the workshop and learn from the expertise and experience of our facilitators and from fellow participants.
