Paterson Job Grading
The Paterson Job Grading System is method where jobs are evaluated based on predefined criteria, This system is mainly used in South Africa. It analyses decision-making in job tasks, and categorises jobs into six groups that are graded and grouped into two to three sub-grades. These factors include stress, individual tolerance, length of job and number of responsibilities. These all correspond to organisational levels. The six grades, also called bands, define pay scales.
