Essentials for the Success of a Job Evaluation Programme
Following are the essentials for the success of a job evaluation programme:
Compensable factors should represent all of the major aspects of job content. Compensable factors selected should
- avoid excessive overlapping or duplication;
- be definable and measurable;
- be easily understood by employees and administrators;
- not cause excessive installation or administrative cost: and
- be selected with legal considerations in mind.
- Operating managers should be convinced about the techniques and programme of job evaluation. They should also be trained in fixing and revising the wages based on job evaluation.
- All the employees should be provided with complete information about job evaluation techniques and programme.
- All groups and grades of employees should be covered by the job evaluation programme.
- The programme of – and techniques selected for-job evaluation should be easy to understand by all the employees.
- Trade unions acceptance and support to the programme should be obtained.
- Experts have advanced certain guidelines for conducting the job evaluation programme in a systematic way:
- Rate the job – not the person or employee on the job.
- Strive to collect all the facts accurately.
- Look especially for distinguishing features of jobs and for relationships to other jobs.
