Role Benchmarking, Grading & Skills Mapping

Our consultants have specialist expertise within job role benchmarking across factory and warehousing environments. Sensitively and objectively capturing key information to inform decisions around job grading, people development strategies and risk management across sites.

Job Role Benchmarking

A comprehensive evaluation to establish the level of decision making, complexity, job knowledge, communication skills and responsibility for others that differentiate each role.

This process tends to encompass all weekly and salaried operational roles up to middle management to provide a robust framework against which future grading, recruitment and training decisions can objectively be made.

To gain a thorough understanding of the different aspects of each unique position, we spend time talking with individuals in role, their line managers and other stakeholders as well as observing people, processes, systems and documentation and considering how these may need to change as the business evolves.
