Internal Equity Retaining good employees Job Evaluation General Basis Skill Effort Responsibility Working Conditions
Internal Equity Job Evaluation Techniques Ranking Jobs are compared to each other based on their overall worth to the company. The ‘worth’ of a job is usually measured by judgments of skill, effort, responsibility, and working conditions. The advantage of the ranking method is that it is simple. The disadvantages, similar to the ranking method of performance appraisal, are that the intervals between the ranks are assumed to be equal, the judgments are global, and as the number of jobs for evaluation increases it becomes increasingly difficult. Also, the evaluators must have knowledge of all jobs.
Classification method Jobs are classified into a grade/category structure. Each tier of the structure has a description and associated job titles. For example, the Westinghouse system had: –Grade 1 Unskilled ex. File clerk –Grade 2 Skilled ex. Typist, lathe operator –Grade 3 Interpretive ex. Chief clerk –Grade 4 Creative ex. Engineers, sales reps –Grade 5 Executive ex. Department heads –Grade 6 Administrative ex. Chief engineer, Director of R&D –Grade 7 Policy ex. Vice-president of Marketing Each job is assigned to the grade/category providing the closest match to the job. Standards are developed mainly along occupational lines. The standards help identify and describe key characteristics of occupations that are important for distinguishing different levels of work. Pay ranges are then assigned to grades. –See http://www.opm.gov/oca/08tables/html/gs.asp The advantages of this method are that it is simple and has been in use for many years. Its disadvantages include the fact that classification judgments are subjective, and the standard used for comparison may have built-in biases. Also, some jobs may fit into more than one grade/category or their descriptions are so broad that they do not relate to specific jobs.
Factor Comparison Select benchmark jobs. Sets of compensable factors are identified as determining the worth of jobs. The number of factors is usually four or five and typically relate to skill, responsibility, effort and working conditions. Jobs are then ranked on each factor. Wages are then allocated to the factors. The organization’s other jobs are then compared to the benchmark jobs and rates of pay for each of the other jobs. Factor comparison has the advantage that the value of the job is expressed in monetary terms, and the method is applicable to a wide range of jobs. The method’s disadvantages are that the pay points for each factor is based on subjective judgments.
Point Method The point method is an extension of the factor comparison method. Usually between eight and fourteen compensable factors (typically related to skill, effort, responsibility, and working conditions) are identified as determining the worth of jobs. –Examples of compensable factors include »education, experience, knowledge, physical demands, mental demands, responsibility for equipment & work processes, responsibility for materials & products, responsibility for safety, responsibility for the work of others, responsibility for financial resources, job hazards, etc. Factors are divided into degrees Points are assigned the degrees Benchmark jobs are compared to market rates
