How much is a job worth? To find out, agencies might benchmark the job using salary surveys, rank its value within the organization, or assign a set number of points to job factors such as education, experience, skills sets, or responsibilities. Sounds easy, right? Unfortunately, the process of job matching isn't always so straightforward. HR leaders are telling us their organizations are falling short in adopting modernization techniques.
