JOB EVALUTION Job Evaluation is the process whereby an organization systematically establishes its compensation program. In this process, jobs are compared in order to arrive at each job’s appropriate worth within the organization.
REWARDS Employees exchange work for rewards. Probably the most important rewards, and indeed the most obvious, is money. But all employees don’t earn the same amount of money.
THE GOALS OF COMPENSATION ADMINISTRATION The goals of compensation administration are to design a cost-effective pay structure that will attract, motivate, and retain competent employees. It should also be one that will be perceived as fair by employees. Fairness is a term that frequently arises in the administration of an organization's compensation program. Organizations generally seek to pay the least that they have to in order to minimize costs, so fairness means a wage or salary that is adequate for the demands and requirements of the job. Fairness is a two-way street.
WHAT IS JOB EVALUTION? Job analysis is the process of describing the duties of a job, authority relationship, skills required, conditions of work, and additional relevant information. Data generated from job analysis could be used to develop job descriptions and specifications, as well as to do job evaluations. By Job evaluation, we mean using the information in job analysis to systematically determine the value of each job in relation to all jobs within the organization. Job evaluation seeks to rank all the jobs in the organization and place them in a hierarchy that reflects the relative worth of each. Job evaluation assumes normal performance of the job by a typical worker. So, in effect, the process ignores individual abilities or the performance of the jobholder. The ranking that results from job evaluation is the means to an end, not an end in itself. It should be used to determine the organization's pay structure.
PAYING FOR PERFRORMANCE Pay-for-performance programs are compensation plans that pay employees on the basis of some performance measure. Piecework plans, gain sharing, wage incentive plans, profit sharing, and lump sum bonuses are examples of pay-for-performance programs. What differentiates these forms of pay from the more traditional compensation plans is that instead of paying an employee for time on the job, pay is adjusted to reflect some performance measure. These performance measures might include such things as individual productivity, team or work group productivity, departmental productivity, or the overall organization's profits for a given period. Performance-based compensation is probably most compatible with demonstrating to employees that a strong relationship exists between their performance and the rewards they receive.
TEAM -BASED COMPENASATION In today’s dynamic organization, much more emphasis has been placed on involving employees in most aspects of the job that affect them. When organizations group employees into teams and empower them to meet their goals, teams reap the benefits of their productive effort. The is, team-based compensation plans are tied to team-based performance. If goals were achieved, then all shared in the “Glory”. If any of the managers failed, the entire team would not receive a dime of bonus money. The concept is now being driven down to the employee population! Under a team-based compensation plan, team members who have worked on achieving and in many cases, exceeding established goals often share equally in the rewards (although, in the truest sense, teams allocate their own rewards). Providing for fair treatment of each team member, group cohesiveness is encouraged.
SUMMARY Explain the various classifications of rewards. Discuss why some rewards are considered membership based. Define the goal of compensation administration. Discuss job evaluation and its three basic approaches. Explain the evaluation of the final wage structure. Describe competency-based compensation programs. Discuss why executives are paid significantly higher salaries than other employees in an organization. Identify what is meant by the balance sheet approach to international compensation.
PAY-FOR-PERFORMANCE Employees should have a clear understanding of what they’re attempting to accomplish. Manager needs to see that this task is achieved by helping employees set their work goals. While this appears to be common sense, it’s not always the case. Setting pay-for-performance objectives is a skill that every manager needs to perfect. You can better facilitate this process by following these guidelines. - Identify an employee’s key job tasks. - Establish specific and challenging goals for each key task. - Allow the employee to actively participate. - Prioritize goals. - Built in feedback mechanisms to assess goal. - Link rewards to goal attainment.
