How does PiE work?

Once you submit salary and allowance data for your teaching and support staff using our easy to use online dashboard, the PiE team work with you to validate the data. Once validated, you will then have access to the easy to use, PiE reporting tools where you can compare anonymised salary and TLR’s data. Depending on your subscription level, you will have access to a range of filters such as organisation type and region, allowing you to compare your organisations salaries and allowances accurately with similar organisations.

Accurate job matching

  • Accuracy underpins the entire salary benchmarking process and is critical to the validity of the data.  If jobs aren’t properly matched, the resulting data would be inaccurate making comparisons invalid.
  • The PiE team have developed an easy to use, effective framework which enables you to accurately match all the jobs in your organisations into Job Families. 
  • A Job Family is a group of jobs with similar characteristics who are involved in similar work.  
  • Within each Job Family there are a number of Job Levels which reflect different levels of responsibility, accountability, scope of influence and skillset.
  • The combination of the Job Family and the Job Level determines which Job Code a job is allocated to within the framework. 
  • We work closely with you to ensure all your jobs are accurately matched and allocated the correct Job Code, even those seemingly unique positions.

Data Input

  • Having allocated each role to a Job Code, you then input the remuneration data for all your teaching and support staff onto the PiE platform using simple, easy to use dashboards.
  • Most of the information we need is held on your HR systems and will be easy to find, such as payroll number, job title, salary, TLR’s and other allowances.
  • Once you submit your salary and allowance data, the PiE team then work with you to validate it and the choice of Job Code is once again checked. 
  • We pride ourselves in the quality and robustness of our data which we can only achieve by spending time helping you submit your information. 
  • This hands-on attention to detail and the bespoke application to the education sector sets PiE apart from other more generic benchmarking offerings.

  • Once your organisation’s salary and allowance data for teaching and support staff has been uploaded and validated, you will be given access to the powerful PiE reporting facility.
