*What is a Rate Range?

Rate ranges refer to the spread of salaries paid for jobs assigned to the same salary grade. Jobs are assigned to salary grades based on the level of responsibility, skill, and difficulty so that similar jobs are grouped together. Salary survey data are then collected for benchmark jobs within each grade and used to establish the midpoint of the rate range for that salary grade. The midpoint is the rate at which an employee who is fully qualified and performing the job at an acceptable level would be paid. The rate range for a salary grade consists of a minimum, midpoint, and maximum rate of pay.

Why is a Rate Range Important?

Rate ranges are important for several reasons. First, by grouping similar jobs together in a salary grade, an employer can insure that there is internal equity in its pay structure, e.g., jobs with similar difficulty and responsibility in the organization are paid the same. Second, employers can insure that rate ranges reflect salaries that are competitive in the market by checking benchmark jobs in each salary grade against survey data. Close analysis of compensation in the real world reveals that it is not the job title but the job grade that is important. Even though the various jobs within a particular grade may seem very different, the skills required to perform them have important similarities, giving them roughly the same value in the labor market.
