Understanding your job data is key to pay transparency compliance

With legislation on the rise across many countries, now is the time for organisations to get on the front foot when it comes to pay transparency, but when faced with the challenge of dealing with complex organisational structures, it can be a daunting task.

There are a lot of moving parts for any large organisation when it comes to compliance. It's not just about keeping up with legislative changes but also putting in place robust and agile job data structures, mechanisms and processes to enable effective global compliance, whilst managing the nuances of regional variations.

“The pay transparency movement will continue to spread through regulation, but also through changing workforce expectations. We’re in an environment where employees are rightly demanding fairness, clarity and transparency in how they are paid.” Aon

Pay Transparency in the US

There are now 10 US states with pay transparency legislation in place, with a further thirteen in the process of making it law.

Using the state of California as an example, all employers, with 15 or more employees, must include the pay scale for a position in any job posting. They must also maintain records of a job title and wage rate history for each employee for the duration of employment plus three years. 

26% of the US labour force is covered by pay transparency laws, that's over 44 million people

In addition, there are requirements for pay gap reporting, a ban on asking job applicants about their salary histories and relying on an applicant's salary history to determine compensation levels.

EU Pay Transparency Directive

In 2023, the EU Parliament voted to adopt a Directive. This is in a drive to close the gender pay gap of around 13%. EU Member States have until June 2026 to transpose the Directive into national law.

The Directive also makes pay gap reporting mandatory for organisations over a certain size; it also goes one step further, requiring organisations to look at deeper analysis and establish a corrective action plan where there is a pay gap of more than 5%.

Job applicants will have the right to receive information on the initial pay level/range for any advertised position and employers cannot ask about previous or current pay.

Pay Transparency in the UK

The EU Directive won’t directly apply in the UK. However, if a company is registered in the UK, or anywhere else non-EU, but has more than 100 employees based in EU member states, they will need to comply with the legislation and reporting requirements for that location.

The UK also has its own gender pay gap reporting process for organisations with more than 250 employees.

Overcoming pay transparency challenges

At the very core of pay transparency, and pay fairness, is job data. Having the job data for your whole organisation mapped within a well-structured job architecture, with a consistent levelling framework across job families, will give you the ability to look across your landscape of jobs, pay and reward, in order to make comparisons between similar roles and ensure equal pay for equal work.

However, for some companies job data can be chaotic, inconsistent and unstructured. It can exist as a long list of job titles and associated job codes that have developed organically as the organisation has grown, changed, merged or acquired. Where an organisation does have a job structure in place, it can easily become difficult to govern and manage and therefore out-of-date.

In both scenarios, there can be a state of chaos – hundreds of job titles, many just slight variations of others; job levels all over the place; and inconsistencies in salary ranges across roles, business areas and regions. A disordered job structure creates a shaky foundation, which makes compliance with pay transparency legislation difficult.

From a Job data perspective, it’s never been more important to get your house in order. Regaining control through a dynamic Job Architecture, and structured frameworks through Job Families, will give greater transparency and control over pay and grading.

Although legislative requirements may differ in each location, fundamentally, they have one overall aim in common; achieving equal pay for equal work for employees from under-represented groups.

If you’re in the process of updating your Job Architecture or Job Families

At a time when clarity across pay structures is more important than ever, we look at how Job Families play a key part in supporting pay transparency and pay equity

Chaotic job structures can act as a barrier to pay and reward, making it difficult to establish clear criteria for compensation, which, in turn, leads to inconsistencies, inequities, and confusion among employees.

This is a time when pay transparency is increasingly becoming a legislative or mandatory requirement, both in Europe and the US: 10 states and counting have now made it law. In the UK, we’re seeing the public sector being hit by pay equity fines, which are largely due to a lack of visibility of job structures.

The challenge is that for many organisations job data and job content is chaotic, inconsistent and unstructured with little to no governance or overall management. Many organisations are simply managing a long list of job titles that have been added to organically as the organisation has grown, changed, merged, or gone through acquisition.  

It is therefore unsurprising that so many organisations, both public and private are struggling to get their house in order and make job and pay structures more transparent and visible across the enterprise.

Regain control with Job Families

One way to reduce this chaos is to organise your jobs into a job family framework. This is where jobs in an organisation, sharing similar skillsets, nature of work and career paths, are grouped in job families.

The essential nature of the activities and the basic skills used will be similar for all roles within a job family. However, the level of responsibility, the skills required to do the work and the scope of the role may be different.

  1. Simplified Pay Structures

Job families help simplify pay structures by creating a more organised and streamlined approach to pay and reward. A job family framework will reduce the number of distinct reward structures, making it easier to manage and communicate pay information.

Job families also simplify the process of determining appropriate pay ranges for different roles, as organisations can use market data and industry benchmarks specific to each job family.

With job families, high-level roles within each category are evaluated, which minimises the need to evaluate individual jobs across locations or teams. Categorising tasks broadens flexibility; as roles evolve, new tasks typically align within existing categories, avoiding frequent job evaluations.

Standardising job titles within job families also aids market benchmarking. Salary comparisons occur at the job family level, rather than assessing each unique role individually. This approach enables organisations to maintain competitive pay while simplifying structures and adhering to governance standards.

2. Pay Transparency

A job family structure enhances communication and transparency around pay and reward and aligns with global movements towards pay transparency.

Increasingly favoured by employees and job seekers - 60% of US and 57% of UK employees would be more willing to switch to organisations with greater pay transparency - job families provide individuals with a clearer understanding of how their role fits within the organisational framework.

Well-defined job families also enable data-driven compensation decisions, including setting salary ranges and adapting to market trends. Moreover, such structures promote accountability in pay decisions, facilitating explanations and justifications to candidates and employees.

3. Pay Equity

Finally, simplifying pay structures through job families can help with evaluations of pay equity. A job family structure makes it easier to look across job families, particularly if these are linked by a common grading / levelling structure, to understand any pay equity issues between different roles.

Where roles are grouped into job families based on skills and responsibilities, overlaps and inefficiencies are avoided and therefore it is much easier to see if employees are being paid differently, even though their experience and skills are the same.

We go into greater depth around job family frameworks and outline all potential benefits in our Guide to Job Families.

Job families and job functions can help organisations establish a robust framework, ensuring transparent career paths or a more effective shift to a skills-based approach. They can be particularly useful when there is a lot of variation in job titles between different functions.

Essentially, a job family is a group of related jobs within an organisation that share similar skill sets and nature of work. Although the level of responsibility, the skills required to do the work and the scope of the role may differ, the essential nature of the activities and the basic skills used will be similar for all roles within a job family.

They are not to be confused with ‘Job family groups’ or ‘job functions’ which are higher-level categories that include multiple job families; Finance or General Administration are good examples of a job function.

Why implement Job Families

We talk to a lot of organisations that are really struggling with their job data and job content that is chaotic, inconsistent and unstructured with no governance or overall management.

As a result of this lack of structure, many organisations exist as a long list of job titles that have been added organically as the organisation has grown, changed, merged or acquired. If an organisation does have a job structure in place, it is often the case that a streamlined structure was implemented but, over time, has been difficult to govern and manage.

In both scenarios, there is often a resulting state of chaos:

Introducing a job family structure can help consolidate, review, cleanse and streamline your job data and job content

Once a job family framework is in place, it provides a solid foundation for many key organisational processes, such as:

There are a range of ways an organisation can create a job family, which includes:

To get a better idea of the job families and structures, we've created a range of examples around key functions.

Our latest guide goes into more detail on creating job families, as well as outlining why it’s a critical element when making that shift to becoming a skills-based organisation.

Josh Bersin refers to job families as “Guilds” or “Professional Groups” as roles are grouped on similar skills requirements. He recommends that each job family is owned by a capability leader, who is then responsible for keeping track of the skills and technologies that people in the group need, as well as making sure they are also aware of wider career options that utilise their skills.

RoleMapper's Guide to Job Families focuses on the importance of implementing a Job Family framework and its key benefits, which includes:

Defining potential career paths up and around your organisation has never been more important

In today's ever-evolving business landscape, taking time to comprehensively define potential career paths up and around your organisation has never been more important. This is particularly the case as companies struggle to retain employees post-pandemic. Gallup recently found that 49% of U.S. employees are watching or actively seeking a new job. The same is true in the UK, with an additional 36% waiting until the economy improves - or for the right opportunity to arise - before they make a move.  

As retention falls, recruitment costs soar. When costs are factored in for recruiting, hiring, training, and onboarding, replacing an employee can cost up to 21% of the annual salary for a role. When scaled up across all roles, this is a significant cost for any organisation. 

What are the key factors that make someone want to look externally for a new role?

A study reported in the Harvard Business Review found that workers who stay for a while in the same job, without a title change, are significantly more likely to leave for another company for the next step in their career. The study suggests that employees who do not see a clear progression from their current role to a better position in the same organisation are more likely to turn to opportunities elsewhere.  

The solution to this is to be clear about the opportunities that exist around your organisation, and to build career paths that show employees a route to get from where they are now to where they want to be.  

However, a barrier for many organisations is that their job titles, job content and job architecture are in such a chaotic state that this prevents the development of career paths within functional areas let alone laterally across the organisation. Employees are often left in the dark about opportunities within their business area or those that exist outside of their own team or function. 

What are career paths? 

Career paths, sometimes also called Career Ladders, map out how internal movement can happen within an organisation. They provide a roadmap for employees to identify potential opportunities for the next step in their career based on their skills, interests and career objectives. 

At a basic level, they show all the possible career path opportunities within a particular function. At a more advanced level they map out permanent and project-based opportunities laterally across the organisation based on skills requirements.   

An example of a simple, vertical career path design within a function would be: 

 

Source: Radford 

Some organisations – such as Mastercard, BP and Rolls Royce - have also developed functional dual ladder career paths where employees can choose either a “technical / specialist” or “managerial” career path depending on whether they want to manage a team or not. 

Example of Dual Career Path for Engineering roles: 

More evolved, pan-organisational career paths will show how employees can use their existing skills to change disciplines, by moving laterally between functions, and where an employee can move up and across an organisation through a cross-functional promotion. These more varied career paths are particularly important as employees move away from wanting to progress through a traditional career path and instead are keen to navigate laterally and vertically, through a more complex web of opportunities, skill enhancements and role transitions. 

What does a good career path look like? 

Well-defined career paths tell employees exactly what the demands and requirements of each role are, so they are clear about what each job involves and what they must do to progress form one job to the next. 

Each role in a career path needs a clear outline of the role showing the scope, responsibilities and requirements (knowledge, skills, competencies).  

The career paths should make use of job levelling to show how different roles relate to one another in terms of level of responsibility and requirements. It should be clear where the similarities are between roles but also what the key differences are and what training and development is available for people wanting to progress into each role. 

What prevents organisations developing career paths? 

One of the main factors that prevents the development of career paths is the state of an organisation’s job structure, also known as a job architecture.  

Many organisations exist as a long list of job titles and associated job codes that have been added to organically as the organisation has grown, changed, merged or acquired. Without proper governance or oversight, there is often a resulting state of chaos – hundreds of job titles, many just slight variations of each other, job levels all over the place and inconsistencies in salary ranges across roles, business areas and regions. Job descriptions can be equally chaotic with different formats and inconsistent information making it challenging to clearly articulate the differences in one job to another.  

There are many impacts on career paths of this chaos: 

Sometimes basic career paths can be defined without a job architecture in place, but these will remain within individual job functions and won’t give a clear picture to those looking for a wider range of opportunities. 

How does a job architecture help with career paths? 

A job architecture forms the building blocks of an organisation. It provides a framework for defining and aligning jobs within an organisation based on the work performed. 

A well-designed job architecture can play a crucial role in defining career paths around the whole organisation by: 

Skills transformation can only be truly effective if the foundations are solid

Organisations are evolving at an unprecedented pace. The typical enterprise organisation has undertaken five major changes in the past three years — and nearly 75% expect to multiply the types of major change initiatives they will undertake in the next three years

“A job architecture provides the foundation for implementing a skills-based approach within an organisation”

When the pace of change was relatively slow, jobs could be described using traditional job descriptions. These would define the exact nature of the work that an individual needed to do, usually in a long list of tasks and remained static over time.

However, an increasing number of organisations are now recognising that defining work in these ways has downsides, the key one being that it can put the brakes on organisational agility. 

Transitioning to a skills-based approach can provide organisations with the flexibility required to adapt during periods of significant change. However, reaping the advantages of this approach hinges on the initial investment of time and effort to establish a robust foundation through a well-designed and effectively managed job architecture.

What does a skills-based approach to defining jobs look like?

A skills-based approach is where organisations define work by deconstructing jobs into critical tasks and outcomes and identifying the current and emerging skills required.

 A skills-based approach to defining work and jobs involves focusing on the skills and abilities needed to perform tasks and contribute to an organisation’s goals. There is less focus on where jobs and people sit within a business and more focus on understanding the jobs, works and skills required across the whole organisation. The work that needs to be done is broken down into discrete segments of work and the requirements are mapped into identifiable skills clusters.

Instead of relying solely on traditional job descriptions, organisations adopting this approach are developing skills-based job profiles that focus on the skills necessary for the role. This enables a clearer understanding of what is expected and helps in recruiting, evaluating, and developing talent. It also makes it easier to spot skills gaps then make plans to fix these either by redeploying people with the relevant skills internally or hiring externally.

One of the key impacts of this rapid evolution is the need for a radical, new approach to how we define and describe jobs and work.

What are the benefits of moving to a skills-based approach?

Recent research by Deloitte found clear benefits of a skills-based approach both in terms of better business results and also an improved employee experience. Organisations who had embedded a skills-based approach were:

What are the barriers?

In the Deloitte 2023 Global Human Capital Trends survey, 93% of respondents said moving away from a focus on jobs – and towards skills – was important or very important to their organisation’s success. Yet only 20% believed that their organisation was very ready to tackle the challenge.

From our experience of working with clients moving to a skills-based approach, the main barrier is a chaotic job architecture.

A job architecture forms the building blocks of an organisation. It provides the framework upon which you can extract, align and manage how skills are distributed and required across the organisation.

If an organisation’s job architecture is chaotic, inconsistent and without governance, moving to a skills-based approach will be an uphill battle.

A well-designed job architecture can play a crucial role in facilitating the transition to a skills-based approach by:

Reviewing your organisation's job architecture framework can feel like a daunting prospect.  We've worked with organisations that have spent more than 18 months carrying out this task manually.  If it takes this long, then by the time you've completed it, it's likely out-of-date, not to mention maintenance and governance of a manual process creating additional challenges.

Our proprietary AI and advanced Natural Language Processing allow our customers to transform and digitise their job data into best-in-class, inclusive job descriptions and a robust, future-focused job architecture and job titling framework. The availability of good job data will enable organisations to easily shift towards a skills-based approach.

The process of inclusive job design sits at the heart of your ability to attract, retain, reward and progress talent across your organisation.

There have been significant shifts in the world of work that have driven creating inclusive jobs to the top of the priority list for leading organisations.

We are operating in ever-changing, volatile markets with increased legislation, particularly around pay equity and transparency. Combine this with a new generation who are expecting a more employee-centric, self-service model to help them navigate career paths up and around an organisation, and you have a clear business imperative to drive change - a key driver being inclusive job descriptions.

Creating inclusive job descriptions is more than just re-working the language and copy on a page. It is a sequence of key steps in a job design process that will enable you to create job descriptions that reflect, in an inclusive way, the work that your organisation needs done now and in the future . The outputs of this process will be debiased job descriptions that will truly make an impact at each stage of the employee lifecycle.

Inclusive job design is the process of designing a job in a way that is unbiased and reflects the actual job that needs to be done - rather than making assumptions about the job and/or job holder.

Step One: Simplify and Segment Responsibilities

Complexity is a real barrier to inclusion. If a job description is simply a long list of tasks, people find it hard to see how their experience and skills can transfer to fulfil a manager’s long wish-list of deliverables. If there are too many responsibilities, or if they are overly complex, research has shown that it will very likely put people off applying for the role.

Step Two: Design Requirements Inclusively

There are three key areas to focus on to ensure your requirements are inclusive. First, which of the requirements are truly essential? Our own research found that, on average, 60% of the requirements listed on a job description aren’t actually essential to be successful in the role. Furthermore, research shows that women will not put themselves forward for a role if they don’t meet 80-100% of the criteria.

Step Three: Design with Hybrid and Flexible Working in Mind

Make it a mandatory step in your job design process to assess which flexible and hybrid working options will work for a role, and challenge yourself to consider options that have not been tried before. Make sure the flexible working options available for the role are fully explained in the job description. If it is decided that a role is not suitable for some options, document the reasons why to ensure that they can be justified.

Step Four: Make your Writing Inclusive

Usability expert Jakob Nielsen found that the average user reads at most 20% of what’s on a page. People tend to scan information that they see online, rather than read it. It’s therefore crucial that you convey the key information about the role in a way that is easy to understand. Long drawn-out job descriptions will put a lot of people off.

Step Five: Embed Systemic Change

The final step is something most organisations find the hardest to do, and that is to systematically embed the principles of inclusive job design into the way that jobs are designed and the way in which job descriptions are written.

Create a process and guidance for anyone to use in your organisation who is involved in job design and writing job descriptions. Put governance in place to make sure that inclusive job design principles are being followed.

Many local authorities are looking to transform how jobs are created, structured and governed. We explore the impact it can have on an organisation.

Jobs sit at the heart of delivering the changes required to support improvements in customer experience. How they are designed is critical to harnessing talent and skills across organisations and systems, ensuring inclusion, accessing talent, developing people and planning for the future.

The way jobs are currently organised and managed across many local authorities is a blocker to change. So much so, that, according to EY, “governments won’t be able to provide a 21st century citizen experience and better citizen outcomes with 20th century skills and working practices”.

Across many local authorities, the current process for creating, organising and governing jobs is manual, inefficient, inaccurate, resource-intensive and poor quality, and why the need for job transformation is so critical for delivering a 21st century service.

For all local authorities, embarking on a job transformation project of whatever size can bring many benefits.

HR Systems & Processes

HCM systems require accurate job structures and job titles in place before implementation. The mistake many organisations make is simply loading in what exists already, which is likely to be outdated, rigid, and not fit for purpose. If jobs are not organised and up to date, this will hinder the value organisations can get from their technology investment.

Recruitment

For most HCM platforms, the job structure powers the recruitment workflow. If there isn’t a clear structure in place for jobs, and a central repository for job descriptions, HR, Hiring Managers and Recruiters can waste a significant amount of time writing duplicate content or using out-of-date job descriptions that don’t accurately reflect the role.

Compensation & Benefits

One of the main uses of a job framework or job architecture is to provide a framework for managing pay and reward. A job levelling process can be used to assess the relative value of jobs in the organisation and to put in place compensation parameters for each job level. This helps ensure a consistent approach across job functions and helps with pay equity reporting and analysis.

Legal and Compliance Reporting

With increasing pay equity legislation being introduced, along with the requirement to report on equitable pay practices, an accurate job framework is fast becoming a critical tool for local authorities to implement, monitor and govern pay equity strategies. With a job structure in place, pay equity analysis is made significantly easier, removing the management discretion around jobs and pay.

Inclusion and Flexible Working

How jobs are described in a job description can have a significant impact on the diversity of talent we can attract, recruit, retain and progress. If job descriptions are thrown together and then reused repeatedly, they are likely to reduce the diversity of applicants. In contrast, a well-written job description, with a focus on inclusion and the essential skills needed for the role, can greatly increase the diversity of candidates who apply for that role.

In our guide, Six Steps to Inclusive Job Descriptions, we describe the impact this can have on diversity and inclusion.

Objectives & Performance Management

Having accurate up-to-date job content is critical to objective setting and performance management. When this is working well, job content flows seamlessly from the recruitment process to the performance management process. If job content isn’t accurate, and doesn’t reflect the realities of a role, this can lead to employee attrition.

Research has shown a direct link between accurate job descriptions and attrition; 43% of employees who leave within 90 days state the reason for leaving is that their day-to-day role wasn’t what they expected.

Learning & Development

Many organisations are moving to a skills-based approach and redesigning their operating models and strategies to have skills at their core. This enables them to become more agile, to have higher levels of employee engagement, to encourage innovation and to show faster rates of growth.

Career Paths & Succession Planning

A clear, streamlined job structure helps an organisation map out possible career paths and communicate these to employees, so they can be informed about any training and development opportunities and see possible routes up and around the organisation.

Employees will have clear visibility of roles across the organisation and can identify possible roles in different teams and departments rather than simply focusing on movement within their current team.

Workforce Planning & Analytics

Planning your workforce around the skills that are needed now and in the future is a critical task that all local authorities need to undertake. EY suggests seven steps for a public sector focussed workforce planning strategy, to identify the skills that an organisation requires and to plan a workforce around these:

All of these steps are made easier by having a robust, future-focused job titling framework and job structure.

Organisational Change

Traditional ways of working have been replaced with digital transformation happening across the public and private sector. Those using public services have very different expectations about how they access services now, compared to five or ten years ago.

These changes can make it difficult for local authorities to keep their job content up to date and reflect the realities of the jobs that people are undertaking. Digitising and centralising job content makes this process much easier, as changes can be made quickly and easily to the job content or an update to multiple job roles is required.

Where to start

It can be difficult to know where to start with a job transformation. When faced with a chaotic picture of multiple job titles across various business areas and regions, the response can be to put this task into the “too hard” box and delay it for another year, in the hope it sorts itself out. However, this can create issues, open organisations vulnerable to compliance risk or slow down strategic people initiatives.

As a starting point for any organisation, technology can fast-track the harmonisation of your organisation’s job titles, reducing the process from years or months to just weeks, giving you the scope to start transforming jobs across your council or local authority.

New guide on making a business case for transformation and digitisation

Our new guide, "The Strategic Importance of Jobs" explores why jobs are more than just tasks; they are critical components of strategic planning and organisational success.

We focus in on the following key points:

  1. Jobs as Strategic Assets: Each job has unique responsibilities, competencies, and outcomes that align with broader objectives.
  2. Job Design and Alignment: Proper job design ensures that roles are well-defined, purposeful and contribute to an organisation's overall strategy.
  3. Talent Management: Identifying the right skills and competencies for each job helps in attracting, developing, and retaining top talent.
  4. Job Analysis and Evaluation: How this process helps in determining appropriate compensation, setting performance expectations and establishing career progression paths.
  5. Job Clarity and Communication: Clear communication of job expectations, responsibilities, and outcomes is vital for employee engagement and performance.
