Skill-Based Pay Definition

Definition
This is a system of compensation that rewards people for displaying a level of mastery for skills rather than time on the job or having a generic degree.

Extended Definition
Most of the time, skills-based payment systems are suitable for specialized trades in which employees must master certain work-related skills in order to advance in rank and pay scale. This mastery is determined through various certifications, specific degrees, and/or employer-based tests designed to ascertain specific skills and knowledge.
