Job Benchmarking in Compensation Management

Use this page to search for market data about potential jobs that you'll be adding to your company.




To set up the job mapping for your company, go to the Job Mapping tab and click on Search. Type in the job title assigned by your company. The standardized title options will appear beneath that.

For example, if someone at your company has a job title of Chef, you'll pick from the standardized job titles of Chef and Head Cook, or Cook.



Once you select a standardized title, you'll see details about the job family, sub family, and any alternative job titles.

To view Salary Statistics for this job title, type in a location under the City Lookup.

  • Industry
  • Sub- Industry
  • State
  • City
  • Job Family
  • Job Sub Family
  • Job Level
Next, you'll select the desired Experience Level. The options for this are:

  • Entry/Junior
  • Intermediate
  • Senior
  • Lead
  • Department Head
  • Executive
These are defined within the Compensation Management tool. Navigate to the Settings tab, then click Job Mapping from the left hand menu. Next, click the experience breakdown link to view how the experience levels are defined in Zenefits.

You are able to use the Job Benchmarking tool to perform research, without hiring anyone in Zenefits. The search tool gives you the ability to type in a general role in any location to provide compensation information.

Compensation Management data does not feed over to other areas of Zenefits. You must set up any information you'd like to see displayed in the initial set up flow, including job mapping and your company's compensation philosophy.

The Compensation Management job mapping tool allows you to see the salary for one role, in one location. At this time, you're not able to compare their compensation against the general market if they are not able to be mapped to one of the Zenefits standard titles.

However, you are able to use the Job Benchmarking tool to perform research on a variety of roles and locations to best inform your decision making.

Mapping a company job title to the standardized job title automatically maps all the workers with the same company job titles to the specific standardized job title. For example, if there are ten workers with the job title of Product Manager 1, and the company job title is mapped to the standardized title of Product Manager - Entry Level, then all ten workers are mapped automatically to Product Manager - Entry Level.

At this time, it is not possible to exclude employees from the benchmarking process.
