A Job Classification Framework or Job Architecture or Job Matching Framework is a series of progressively higher related jobs distinguished by levels of knowledge, skills, abilities (competencies) and other factors. Using a job classification framework makes it possible to identify critical roles, skills and promotional opportunities quickly and easily. It also supports deep job analysis for insights across the organization.

A job classification framework is critical in building the foundation for workforce analytics and planning as it enables advanced segmentation and identification of trends and opportunities for particular workforce groups and isolation of cohorts for detailed analysis. 

While the value increases exponentially as organizations progress to more advanced analytics and planning, the immediate value is in the ability to slice across business units or divisions and identify all employees in a particular job role or function.
