Base Pay Grades

Establishing a base pay structure provides companies with a framework for managing compensation. Using pay grades, jobs are ranked and compensated based on where the position falls in the hierarchy. The advantages of establishing pay grades range from the ability to make quick pay decisions, to reducing the likelihood of systemic pay discrimination by focusing on the technical aspects of a job.
