Intro to Market Pricing

LIVE May 29, 2019: 12:00pm - 2:00pm Eastern

Learn about market pricing, uncover the pros and cons of market-based job evaluation, and identify key steps in pay structure design.

Many employers look first to the external market to establish and benchmark their own compensation levels. Even employers that use a formal job content evaluation approach examine external market data as a part of the process, although the information collected is supplemental, rather than a primary focus. 

An organization’s internal job worth hierarchy is influenced by the value of jobs as established by the external market. Regardless of the job evaluation approach taken, the successful use of market data relies upon the techniques used to collect and analyze the data. Is the organization capable of collecting data on most of its jobs? Are the data sources reliable? Are the sources representative of the relevant labor markets? What is the best way to analyze and use the data collected? 

In this session, you will:

  • Learn about market pricing and the terminology associated with market pricing.
  • Explore the advantages and disadvantages of market-based job evaluation and pay structure design
  • Identify and describe the steps involved in market-based pay structure design.
