Job Design and Evaluation Course

Learn about job design and job evaluation using Birches Group Community™

Birches Group is pleased to announce our new Job Design and Evaluation Workshop.  This new course is to complement our Compensation Management Workshop, which has been embraced by the international NGO 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 new course will be offered for the first time from 17-19 November, 2015, in Dubai, UAE.

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 CommunityTM 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, international NGOs 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.

The NGO Local Pay surveys, which are now being used by over 300 NGOs in over 80 countries, and will be our primary market data reference in the workshops, have created a resource that for the very first time allows INGOs to use a single, consistent reference to labor market data in order to manage compensation across multiple countries and from year to year.  The availability of the data has illuminated the need in most NGOs to develop good practices in using data well, in order to guide good management decisions.  These workshops are one step we are taking in 2015 to help you to build those good practices for your organization.
