Job Classification

What is Job Classification?


‘Job Classification’ refers to the differentiation of the jobs in a company against a standardized scale. It is based on the overall job responsibilities, duties, salary, and other benefits entailing the job position. It does not take into account the skill level of the personnel in the position; only the skill level required for the position.


Jobs are classified into grades or levels based on the aforementioned factors. The final goal of job classification is to structure the overall jobs within a company in order to determine the responsibilities associated with every position.


The job classification varies widely based on the industry and the size of the company. It also helps in comparing the same position across the industry and making changes accordingly within the company or the job responsibilities.
