New Job Evaluation

New job evaluation refers to the analysis of a new job or post in an organisation by the HR or the management by evaluating the job duties of that position, knowledge and skills required by people working in that post and by providing a detailed job description. This helps the recruitment process and also aids in the decision on compensation and salary.
