Job Evaluation

The job-evaluation process starts defining objectives of evaluation and ends with establishing wage and salary differentials.

The main objective of job evaluation, as was stated earlier, is to establish satisfactory wage and salary differentials. Job analysis should precede the actual program of evaluation. Job analysis, as was discussed earlier, provides job-related data, which would be useful in drafting job description and job specification.

As organisations constantly evolve and new organisations emerge there will be challenges to existing principles of job evaluation. Whether existing job evaluation techniques and accompanying schemes remain relevant in a faster moving and constantly changing world, where new jobs and roles are invented on a regular basis, remains to be seen. The formal points systems, used by so many organisations are often already seen to be inflexible. Sticking rigidly to an existing scheme may impose barriers to change. Constantly updating and writing new jobs together with the time that has to be spent administering the job evaluation schemes may become too cumbersome and time consuming for the benefits that are derived.

The emerging trend in the modern system leads to a change in every aspect. The strategic human resources has been emerged from the traditional human resources management where we can observe a change in the compensation system.
