Job Benchmarking

Success Insights job benchmarking process is uniquely effective because it benchmarks a specific job, not the people doing the job. To do this, we "let the job talk" through an interactive process and an assessment of the job, not the individual, in order to remove the bias, personality contests and unknown variables that can otherwise provide inaccurate results. This process can be used in several aspects of human capital management, including:

  • Development
  • Selection
  • Retention
  • Management

The interactive process helps those people who know and understand the job best to determine the key accountabilities that are specific to the job itself. Key accountabilities are concise statements used to describe the performance objectives for a particular position. Key accountabilities are important to the job benchmarking process because they are used to clarify the position and determine why the position exists and what specific value it brings to the organisation.

Through an assessment of the job, the process focuses on how the job should be done by considering:

  • What personal skills are needed for the job?
  • How does the job reward superior performance?
  • What behavioural styles will contribute to success?

Once the job benchmarking process is complete, the key accountabilities and benchmark results can be used in many different situations to make a positive impact on the bottom line.
