Enter a description for the level.


Be sure to create clear level descriptions that identify the compensation plan type for the level.


Select a type for the level:

Band – This plan type typically has broad ranges of pay rates and, therefore, has fewer levels.

Grade – This plan type is more detailed and graduated, and often contains a larger number of levels.

Step – This plan type has discrete progressions of pay for each level and it is the most graduated plan type. For example, you could use a step plan for jobs that have hourly pay rates.
