Talent Management

Human Capital is the greatest asset of an organization and that is what differentiates it from its competitors. Human Capital is also an organization’s greatest investment in many cases. HR Axis India’s Talent Management & Development Services support different aspects involved in getting the greatest return on your Human Capital investment

1. Job Analysis & Job Descriptions
Job analysis and development of accurate job descriptions support many critical aspects of an organization’s human resource management:

• Recruitment of the correct candidate
• Establishment of competitive compensation & benefits
• Individual productivity and employee engagement
• Streamline of work processes and accountability
• Identification of training needs
• Compliance with labor laws and legislation.

Regardless of the need, completing job analysis and developing accurate job descriptions is of the utmost importance and requires specific expertise and knowledge. HR Axis India has been providing these services to our clients since 2004. Our experts continuously stay abreast of industry requirements as well as industry best practices to ensure both the processes and resulting job documentation can support and be the backbone of our client’s business operations.

Job Analysis – What makes a person successful in a Job Position?

Jobs are analyzed to identify the requirements needed for employees to be successful on the job – helping both the employer and the employee. There are numerous methods of analyzing jobs including observation, interviewing, questionnaires, competency profiling, etc. Regardless of the method used, HR Axis India focuses on the job itself and not the person performing the job. This ensures accuracy of job function regardless of who is performing it.

Job Descriptions – Importance and Structure

Job descriptions are the foundation of organizational performance, and serve as key drivers in a variety of HR functions. At HR Axis India, the development of effective job descriptions is a critical part of our HR Axis developed job descriptions used to :

• Define the jobs for performance planning, transfer, promotion, staff planning and career development
• Use standard formats that allow for consistent application
• Give employees written definitions of their jobs
• Provide reliable sources for compensation plan design and establishing internal equity
• Help organizations move swiftly to increase or replace staff due to increased business or turnover
• Help those responsible for work flow to perform systematic analyses of organizations’ work processes from start to finish.
At HR Axis, we develop job descriptions that are broad, descriptive, and flexible to enable adaptation to your organization’s changing needs. We work with our clients to develop effective templates, identify critical goals and unique qualifiers of their organization, and then we help to establish and connect each job’s duties back to the critical goals of the organization. This ensures alignment of each job to the overall success of the organization, while providing the details needed to support effective job performance. At the same time, every job description developed by HR Axis includes the minimum criteria needed to successfully perform in the job such as required knowledge, skills, and abilities, responsibilities, reporting structure, and typical mental and physical requirements of the job.

Internal Job Evaluation

Job evaluation is a systematic process of determining the relative value of various jobs within an organization, and assigning jobs to a hierarchical index of job value. Effective job evaluation enables an organization to:

• Provide fair pay to its employees
• Attract and retain its needed talent
• Identify duplication of tasks and gaps between jobs and function allowing it to make strategic alignment decisions
• Identify qualification requirements
• Place jobs in salary structures
• Maintain internal equity.

At HR Axis, our trained and well-experienced staff provides an unbiased, holistic approach to evaluation of an organization’s jobs.
• We focus on only the job itself, not the person performing the job – something that can be very difficult to do if you are an employee of the organization
• We understand the effects a job evaluation process can have on the employees such as job insecurity or fear of pay cuts – so we assist in using an organization-wide involvement and continuous communication process helping to ease concerns and establish a sense of ownership from the results of the job evaluation
• We know the struggles that can occur with management involvement and we take a proactive approach from the onset to help ensure the cooperation needed for successful project completion

Job evaluations are completed after the job analysis and job descriptions are complete. HR Axis employs both non-quantitative methods of evaluation such as job classification, as well as quantitative methods such as a job point-factoring which utilizes compensable factors to determine internal worth – a key to establishing an internally consistent compensation system that can serve as a strategic tool for the organization.

2. External Market Survey
HR Axis conducts external market survey to ensure our clients are competitively positioned to compete for talent in current and future labor markets, and to ensure their internal compensation structures are strategically aligned to the overall goals of the business organization in order to build a stable, dedicated and high performing workforce. HR Axis develops external market rates of pay for benchmark job titles using valid survey sources to support both external and internal equity and establish a consistent, market/competency-based compensation structure.

External market pricing is conducted to calculate the base rate of pay being offered by our client’s competitors for specific jobs performing similar roles and essential functions. Knowing what the competition or comparable organizations are willing to pay is a crucial piece of information when setting the client’s base rate of pay to attract and retain key talent. HR Axis employs ‘best practice’ methodologies by balancing internal job evaluation with the external market pricing in order to do the best job possible in reconciling sometimes conflicting influences.

3. Performance Management System
Performance management systems are driven by business needs, organizational culture and the system’s integration with other human resource management systems. There is not a “one size fits all” model for PMS.

Effective Performance Management Systems:

  • Increase employees’ accountability of their on-the-job performance
• Provide a more objective tool for measuring employees’ success
• Provide a direct line of sight for employees to the strategic goals of the organization
• Improve success rates for reaching overall organizational goals
• Mitigate employment practice-related risks by linking evaluation to employees’ self-validated job descriptions
• Provide measurement for operational/business decisions, i.e., performance rewards, compensation, downsizing, etc.
• In addition, an organization’s performance management directly affects employee morale and attitude, thereby determining productivity and ultimately the success of the organization. In today’s workplace climate, performance management is crucial!

HR Axis designs performance management systems and tools to systematically produce meaningful, measured results for our clients. Contact HR Axis to learn how we can create a PMS that produces the measurements and outcomes needed for optimal performance management and bottom-line influence!
