Internal Equity (Employee Remuneration against benchmarked market salaries)

Employee Assessments (Online)

Employee assessments are performance appraisals or reviews used to evaluate employees‘ performance and productivity. These tests assess personality, aptitude and skills.

We are proud to introduce you to the Job Description and Organogram Builder. With fully integrated functions to any Human Resource Management software or can be used as a standalone.

Project and Change Management

The disciplines of change management and project management are both necessary when executing a project or initiative. Each discipline brings the critical structure needed for effectively implementing change and achieving the results you want. Yet, change management and project management must work together to achieve successful change.

Life Coaching and NLP

You will learn proven practical techniques by masters. Techniques that bring change in real lives… yours and your clients.

Salary Benchmarking (Online)

Salary benchmarking, also called compensation benchmarking, is the process by which internal job descriptions are matched to external jobs with similar responsibilities to identify the market rate for each position.


A few advantages to mention:

  • Principles are not complex & are usually easily understood, communicated & implemented
  • All roles within a business are evaluated using the same methodology and aligned terminology
  • Profiling/Architecture
  • Organogram alignment
  • Job Evaluations/Grading
  • Accommodating broad banding & multi-skilling / upskilling
  • Evaluation of specialist roles as effectively as non-specialist roles
  • The role (Position) & not the person is evaluated (mitigates subjectivity)
  • Job Descriptions are aligned across ALL Companies within the Group (Consistency is key)
  • It assists in illustrating the competitiveness of organizational pay scales against market
  • It is a useful Organizational Design Framework & Tool
  • Incorporates Sustainability and Succession planning
  • ROI (For both Employees and Employers)


It is the employers’ prerogative to ensure sustainability, not only through conducive business practices, but also by strategically incorporating Broad-based Black Economic Empowerment, Skills Development and Employment Equity initiatives.

Recent amendments to the Employment Equity Act (No. 55 of 1998) illuminate this focused shift towards equitable working conditions; particularly referring to income differentials.

It has now become necessary for employers to prove that differences in wages and salaries are based on fair and objective criteria such as skills, responsibility and experience.
