The job evaluation process at Northeastern University is a partnership between Human Resources Management Compensation staff and departments. The department manager must work with the department Key Contact to submit a job evaluation through the PeopleAdmin system. Contact Compensation staff if advice on job design and organizational structure is needed before the job evaluation process begins.
Northeastern uses two different tools for evaluating and classifying jobs, but the primary emphasis in both is the University’s internal value system and the dimensions or components of a job that are important to the University. Job components such as scope and complexity of the work are used as a basis for determining the appropriate grade within the internal grade hierarchy.
