The new, independent way to analyze and evaluate jobs

gradar is an accessible, affordable software designed to empower HR departments and provide a suite of specialist job evaluation services. Our simple, transparent application makes the analysis and evaluation of jobs easier than ever - appropriately preparing your business for the challenges ahead.

What makes us different?

gradar is a job evaluation system designed with our clients in mind. We’re committed to providing a standardised service with a number of user-inspired features which your business can operate independently.

By partnering with independent compensation consultants, we implement a non-proprietary approach that focuses chiefly on a job’s requirements.

We evaluate jobs across 25 grades in three different career paths; individual contributor, management roles and project management roles.

Project Management


People Management

Management positions place their emphasis on disciplinary management of employees and organizational units, as well as budget responsibility. Their achievements are typically of an indirect nature through leadership, promotion, support and motivation, along with the functional use of the resources available to achieve their goals.

Project Management

The core objective of project managers is delivery through coordination, personnel distribution, resource allocation and budget control in the context of time-limited, one-off projects.

Individual Contribution

Position holders contribute mainly through the application and development of specific skills. Employees add value either individually or as members of an organizational unit. The responsibility may extend from the execution of individual tasks of an unskilled worker to the technical management of a discipline as an expert. Disciplinary leadership does not belong to the core tasks.
