The e-reward grade and pay structure survey 2007

Conducted in Autumn 2007, the survey produced up-to-date and revealing information from senior HR and reward practitioners in 98 organisations – in both private and public sectors – on what is happening to grade and pay structures in the UK.

This report presents the outcome of the survey under the following headings:

  • type of grade and pay structure

  • graded structures

  • broadbanded structures

  • career and job family structures

  • managing and introducing grade and pay structures

  • practical advice on developing and maintaining grade and pay structures.

Our survey examines all the main aspects of grade and pay structures. The quantitative and qualitative information generated by the survey provide a wealth of insights into contemporary practices and trends in grade and pay structures. It confirms that this is no such thing as "best practice" in this area of reward management.
