Job grades are used for:
- Setting up salary ranges for employees of different levels
- Calculating performance bonuses
Job grades are assigned to job roles to define the relative importance of job roles in the company structure. Each grade has a salary range, which can depend on the country. You can view the recommended compensation scheme when determining an employee's salary. You can also analyze employees' salaries in relation to salary ranges for each grade.
Job grade setup includes:

- Creating salary ranges
- Adjusting grade profiles by adding job roles, salary ranges, and bonus calculation rules
