Band And Salary Structure

Pay bands are the salary ranges that employers assign to each position in an organization. They help companies create a budget for each position by establishing a minimum and maximum payment amount for a specific role. Pay bands can also be referred to as pay scales, band salaries, or National Occupation Classification (NOC) codes. Although many companies use NOC codes as a reference for their internal pay bands, there are no mandatory pay scales outside of the legal minimum wage. By offering a salary range, employers can attract suitable candidates and negotiate salaries during the interview process. Pay bands provide several benefits, such as encouraging talented candidates to apply and promoting transparency in payment amounts. They also allow HR departments and hiring managers to focus on prospective employees who are satisfied with the payment.

To make things more streamlined, companies categorize different positions with similar work environments into salary bands. All positions within the same salary range are grouped together, and employees with similar job positions reside in the same salary band.
