The Zambia Federation of Employers (ZFE) are in the process of exploring whether they can broaden their services with ‘job evaluation’, which would also provide them with an additional income source. From 21-23rd of August 2012, DECP conducted an intensive and specialised training on the subject in Lusaka, following up on an introductory course in 2011.
Job evaluation provides employers with a tool to ‘weigh’ a job and estimate which salary a person in that job should earn. Given the complexity of job evaluation, ZFE are taking a step by step approach to develop the skills required and to explore the potential market. The project is foreseen to be continued in 2013.
