What is Job Bands

In an organisation that has defined job bands, they are used to distinguish the level of compensation given to certain ranges of jobs. It also helps set expectations for the employee where the higher they are, the larger the scope of work becomes. Job Bands are usually made up of two parts, the Job Group and the Job Grade.

It would be useful to set up job bands for the employees, which may be used as a criteria to determine eligibility or entitlement for policies later on. All companies are set up with the Default Job Group and Default Job Grade, you may edit it to match your organisation set up. After you're done, you will need to select a Default Job Group and Job Grade, for the system to apply to new employees when you are Importing or Adding Employees.

To sum up, a Job Group is the collective group of employees that fall within a certain level of your company, whereas Job Grade allows your company to define salary bands (or pay ranges) within that Job Group.
