What Is Job Classification?

Job classification is a plan of classifying jobs based on present requirements, roles and responsibilities associated with the job, without any consideration to the person assigned to the job. The objective of job classification is to study jobs from a holistic perspective.

Job classification is employed to classify and categorise jobs into various grades, with each grade assigned certain class descriptions. Job classification serves multiple purposes, including assisting in recruitment and selection of candidates, defining qualification / shortlisting standards, appraisal standards, etc. Job classification also helps the HR in allocating responsibilities linked with the organization’s mission and vision, aligning roles that help realise clear business objectives and strategies and help the employees to identify organizational paths / roles that can help them in rapid career progressions.

Job classification is suited to group positions having similar roles and responsibilities which require similar qualifications and skillsets. Job classification system is unsuitable for positions which do not match as far as duties and responsibilities are concerned.
