I understand you must have received guidelines on the project from your faculties. Here's my suggestions for you to consider:
  • Define compensation structure, philosophy in the industry your firm belongs to.
  • Identify broadly how banding is done within your industry.
  • Drill down to your firm and define the several levels connecting how compensation is drawn for each one of them.
  • Define the justifications and rationalizations in mapping the compensations.
  • Map and review the existing band in your firm.
  • Identify few areas for improvement and suggest solutions for it
Here's few pointers:
  • Banding Concept- Bands are used to group jobs across the organization similar in scope and complexity, organizational impact, degree of independent judgment and discretion, knowledge and skill expertise
  • Level- It is an indicator used to identify the level of the employee, which will be linked to complexity of the job/role
  • Designation / Titles-It is the title that identifies the role of the individual within the band. For employees in band 2 and 1 there will be a basket of market facing designations which can be used based on the leader’s approval
  • Common Compensation Structure & Policies- An effective and uniform compensation structure is recommended to attract, retain and motivate employees.

Dear Yashwant,
This banding structure is a result of a Mercer project while building parity, when two firms with different structures were merged. The data over the industry was researched to find the best fit.
The initiative dates back to 2007, but the structure hasn't changed much in the firm, baring few tweaks, here and there. The document makes a point of reference for those who are working on it currently. Rest, remains to be researched.
Please consider sharing your views and understanding to the current structure. Looking forward to hear from you.

Designations and salaries are determined on the basis of nature of industries. Heavy industries are paying higher salaries as compared to small and medium scale industries. Vilas
