Neugene Profile Method Guide - NPMG
NPMG Job Evaluation is a methodology used to map out the job roles in the context of the organisational structure.
The main purpose for carrying out job evaluations using this job evaluation method is to enable map and align the roles/jobs. This can deliver the following key benefits:
Clarity in result areas and accountabilities in the processes of the organisation
Enabling salary and benefit grading or bench-marking due to standardization of job levels
Improved succession planning or mobility within the organisation
Creation of more useful and focused job descriptions
Applying the NPMG methodology to a position results in two profiles being produced which are called long and short profiles.
The long profile provides a view on aspects of the role and a score. The short profile refers to the nature of the job (e.g. engineer vs. sales manager) and acts as a check on the long profile.
Typically, NPMG evaluations are carried out in a series of steps which chooses to use the method. The trained and experienced experts are only used in order to reach transparent, objective and explainable results; the steps taken are:
Training for representatives from major operational departments and HR functions in the use of the method. This include practical exercises where a mix of people act as "job evaluation board"
Revision of all job descriptions across the enterprise under HR guidance. Typically a single standard (format) is required if it is not already in existence.
Creation of Job Evaluation Boards – mix of line management, HR and experts to decide on plotting of jobs.
Organisation map and banding proposal – Typically the HR function will work with senior management to put together a proposal for banding or grading staff and describing the benefits that will be attracted by each band.
Board Review – once the jobs are all rated and the organisation map is completed, the company board or equivalent will review the summary, the banding proposals, cost if any, to the company and recommended activities to go ahead. Assuming these are approved, the overall project manager will then move to implementation.
