About job evaluation

Job evaluation is a way of using compensable factors to determine the intrinsic value of a position within an organization. It allows an organization to compare positions internally and to look externally in the job market.

Job evaluation looks at a position’s duties, responsibilities and work environment. With that information we measure work to organize positions into a grading structure and link positions to salary ranges.

A formal framework for job evaluation supports objectivity, consistency and internal equity within an organization.

Terms of employment

The university has different terms of employment where job evaluation systems may apply.

It is important to verify that you're referring to the appropriate system for your position as the plans used differ from one another.

To confirm your employment terms, you might refer to your offer letter or ask your supervisor or manager.
