Job Classification

Job classification is what a system is called that is designed to classify all jobs within a company and put them in a standardized scale based on the overall tasks, responsibilities, pay level, and duties associated with a specific job. Grades or job classification levels are often assigned to each job so that it can be properly organized and categorized within the company.
Job classification is created to help determine what a job does for a company. It can be used for performance reviews, job listings, and determining if there is any responsibility overlap between jobs in the company. The job classification structure is meant to create standardization across a company and industry and is meant to be a tool to make sure you know what responsibilities are being determined within your business.
