Job evaluation is key to ensuring that employees are compensated fairly for their work. It is therefore essential that HR professionals have a robust process in place so that pay and reward are transparent and defensible within teams and across departments. Armstrong's Job Evaluation Handbook gives HR professionals all the tools they need to assess which approach to job evaluation is most suitable, how to implement it and how to maintain it. Packed with case studies from leading organizations such as Microsoft, Vodafone and the NHS, this guide will provide HR professionals with the ability to answer key questions such as how can we decide what is fair to pay our staff, how can we make sure that work of equal value receives equal pay and how can we make sure that our salaries remain competitive in the market?
Armstrong's Job Evaluation Handbook covers everything needed to put effective job evaluation processes in place, including analytical matching and market pricing, developing job grades and defining pay structures. There is also coverage of the latest trends and issues in job evaluation, such as the decline in points-rated systems and the use of levelling by consultants. Underpinned by original research, this is a book that no HR department can afford to be without.
