Job- or Market-Based Structures: What's Best?

This session is intended to deliver a comprehensive understanding of both job based salary ranges and market based salary ranges and why one approach might be considered for implementation over another.  The panel will compare/contrast the advantages and challenges associated with each type of structure and outline the ideal business environment for both types of structure.

Traditional market-based compensation structures are still the most popular among the various approaches for base pay structures. They generally reflect the 25th to 75th percentiles of the competitive market, help with efficiencies when involving a lot of employees, and they're appreciated due to their cost-controlling mechanisms.

But market-based structures also have shortcomings, which is leading many companies to move to job-based structures.

Job-based structures incorporate more pay-influencing aspects that result in a more accurate market representation, especially for hot jobs. And because of this granularity, they bring more managers into the process, which improves communication and pay transparency.

Join this discussion to hear from both sides. In this session:

  • Learn about why companies historically adopted market-based structures, and what evolutions are taking place
  • Why Company A works with a market-based structure, and why Company B moved to job-based
  • You can ask questions of the speakers that will help you make the best decision for your organization
