Your guide to Mercer’s International Position Evaluation (IPE) methodology.

This course will help you understand Mercer's core IPE methodology for evaluating and leveling jobs, creating the opportunity to use a wider selection of benchmark market pricing approaches — from the broad ‘all functions regression line’ to the more specific ‘job match and position class. Learn about the five factors of impact, communication, innovation, knowledge and risk, and their 12 dimensions.

Complete each lesson at your own pace and use the activities to check your level of understanding along the way.

Please note, this course provides information on Mercer’s core IPE methodology; a step-by-step overview of Mercer’s IPE tool is not included. Contact us if you would like to receive more information on Mercer’s IPE tool.
