The Philippine Salary Grade for 2023

The Philippine Salary Grade for 2023

Best offers

Philippine Salary Grade 2022 is the Philippine government’s system of classifying positions and determining appropriate compensation. This classification system is based on a point factor evaluation method, wherein the salary grade assigned to a position is determined by its factors such as skill requirements, job responsibility, supervisory responsibility, mental effort and creativity involved in performing the job. The Philippine Salary Grade 2022 is divided into 18 salary grades, from Salary Grade 1 to Salary Grade 18.

Each Philippine Salary Grade is composed of a range of basic salaries that correspond to the given skill level and job responsibility for the position. For example, Salary Grade 1 typically corresponds with positions such as laborers and other menial jobs. On the other hand, Salary Grade 18 generally corresponds to higher-level positions such as board members and department heads.

It is important to note that Philippine Salary Grades are not fixed and can be adjusted based on changes in market prices or economic conditions. In addition, Philippine laws provide certain benefits and allowances which can be integrated into an employee’s salary package in accordance with their Philippine Salary Grade.

To determine your Philippine Salary Grade, you should be familiar with the Philippine Salary Grade Sample which provides a comprehensive list of Philippine Salary Grades and their corresponding job requirements. This Philippine Salary Grade Sample can help you assess your position in order to receive an appropriate salary grade according to Philippine law.

The amount of money that government employees in the Philippines earn is based on a framework called Salary Grade Table for 2023 under the Salary Standardization Law. If you are a utility worker, computer operator, accountant, teacher or someone occupying a position in the public sector, this year’s salary schedule shall be your reference to check your monthly compensation.

Salary Step

With the exception of Level 33, all other Pay Grades feature approximately eight steps. Surprisingly, level 33 only has two steps instead.

Salary Steps are based on how long an employee has been working in a certain job. This means that, even if they have different Salary Grades, new hires will always start at Salary Step 1. After that, employees move up to the next step every three years as long as they are doing their job well.
