Salary Structure Design

ERC will design or modify your existing salary structure based on industry best practices, and ensure it’s an effective tool for attracting and retaining talent.


What is a Salary Structure and why should we have one?

  • A salary structure is a hierarchy of jobs and salary ranges for an organization. The design of a salary structure should be aligned with your organizations Total Rewards Strategy, and support competitive pay levels and internal equity or any unique needs of an organization.
  • A salary structure provides a foundation for pay policy decisions and a framework for fair and consistent pay practices.
  • A salary structure typically includes salary ranges with a minimum, midpoint and maximum salary for jobs with similar levels of pay in the competitive marketplace.
  • A salary structure establishes and defines pay levels for jobs with career paths or supervisory relationships.
