It involves determining the level of complexity, decision-making, and skills required for each job, which is then categorized accordingly. Job leveling helps candidates and employees understand exactly what’s expected of them in a particular role, how they fit into an organization, and what they need to do in order to get a promotion. … “Job levels are super important — you can’t build the job title until you know what the needs of the organization are.
