The Baarda Model

This is how we proceed

The Baarda Model

In essence, The Baarda Model describes eight roles. These are the Assistant, Skilled Worker, Allrounder, Specialist, Professional, Generalist, Leader and Strategist.

With a project group, we divide the functions between their respective roles, so that the organization is decisively organized. We call the result of this The Job Matrix.

After that, the employees are assigned to learning paths, whereby we look at their knowledge, individual skills and problem-solving abilities. We call the result of this The People Matrix.

We link each role to a competitive salary scale, so that an organization-specific remuneration system is created.

The Baarda Model can be applied to any organization. Whether it is small or large, collective labor agreement or no collective labor agreement, profit or non-profit, national or international. None of the above characteristics make a difference.

Job & People Matrix, Salary Structure

We design our own salary system for each organization. This consists of The Job & People Matrixes as well as a competitive salary structure. So not a “one size fits all” approach, but rather a customization for your organization.

Advantages of this approach are:

  • User-friendly, accessibility and transparency
  • Connection with a competitive salary structure.
  • Direct relationship with strategy and objectives.
  • Stimulates the learning organization in practice.
  • Increase employee engagement and motivation.

Using The Baarda Model leads to the following results:


A standard for the effectiveness that a vital organization must have.


A reward system that is accepted by employees.


Clear career paths with an alike salary.

Market conformity

A competitive salary structure.


Full knowledge transfer: can be applied independently as a certified partner.


Easy expansion to multiple operating companies, even those abroad.
