Recognition and remuneration

It is essential that individuals and service providers are recognised for their performance, whether through salary and benefits, bonus schemes or feedback.

SFIA’s system of generic and specific levels is a key strength in job descriptions and professional profiles. This adds greater objectivity to the assessment of the levels of jobs and of people.

SFIA’s consistent levels help provide clarity about how a job description fits into the organisation’s grading system. Of particular value is the clear differentiation between the requirements at one level and those at the next level up. The use of SFIA to assess and to analyse the performance of individuals supports making and communicating decisions about the individual’s place on those scales.

SFIA helps you ensure that remuneration relates coherently to the individual’s competence and contribution.
