This service allows you to compare an individual's remuneration package against a wide range of data cuts such as the general market, specific industry group or your own customised peer group.
Job evaluation provides a systematic and analytical approach to defining and valuing jobs. It results in a quantitative measure of work value (a number) that can then be used to reference market remuneration data for positions of equivalent size from Mercer's database. Mercer Australia utilises two job evaluation methodologies:
Mercer CED Job Evaluation Methodology
Mercer's CED Job Evaluation Methodology is specific to Australia. The Mercer CED system, sizes a position based on three main factors. These are:
Expertise: The knowledge, skills and experience required for the job, as well as the breadth of functions and interpersonal skill required.
Judgement: The policies and guidelines which exist and impact upon the reasoning and thinking challenges faced by the position.
Accountability: The measured outcomes expected from the position.
International Position Evaluation (IPE) System
The International Position Evaluation (IPE) System which is Mercer's global methodology. The Mercer IPE system, sizes a position based on five factors. These are:
Impact: Considers the nature of a position's impact, modified by the level of contribution and nature and size of the organisation.
Communication: Considers the communication skill requirements of the position based on the responsibility for communications both internally and externally.
Innovation: Considers the level of innovation that the position requires and the level of complexity of the innovation.
Knowledge: Considers the nature of knowledge required to accomplish objectives and achieve goals. It considers whether the knowledge is applied. as a team member, team leader or manager of teams as well as the geographic context.
Risk: Considers the nature of risk within the context of exposure. This factor is an integrated but optional part of the IPE system.
