Evaluate job, not jobholders
Simple elements
Clearly defined
Employee participation
Buy-in

Managerial participation
Deliberation

Optimal occupation
Evaluate Jobs, Not Jobholder: rating of the job should be undertaken and no
evaluation of the employee performing the job should be done.

of job evaluation system.
Managerial Participation: managers should be encouraged to participate in rating the
jobs.
Employee Participation: secure employee cooperation by encouraging them to
participate in job evaluation process.
TECHNIQUE OF JOB
EVALUATION
I. Ranking method

II. Point method

III. Factor comparison

IV. Job classification

V. Computer aided
1. Ranking method: this is the most inexpensive and the simplest method
of job evaluation.job,people or teams can be ranked from ones adding
most value to least value to organisation.jobs are easier to rank when
there is large number of people in jobs.when the large number of
jobs,people or teams are to be ranked then the method of paired
comparisons can be used.

Merits:
. Simple to use if there is a small number of jobs,people or teams.
. Require little time

Demerits:
. Criteria for ranking not understood.
. Increase possibility of bias
. Difficult to use when there is a large number of people,jobs or teams.
2. Point method: the method start with the selection of job factor,construction of degree
for each factor and assignment of point to each degree. different factors selected for
different jobs. The more demanding the job, the higher the point value. some of the
factors are:

(I) skill based factor like education,experience,effort.

(ii) responsibility based factor like responsibility for process,material,safety.

Merits:
. It is most sophisticated system
. The entire outcome is in hard fact numbers.

Demerits:
. It is time consuming
. Satisfying benchmark jobs for the degree are required.
3.Factor comparison method: different factors are selected which are usually five and
these are assumed to be constant for all the jobs. each factor is rank individually with other
jobs. for example, all the jobs may be compared first by the factor mental requirements
the skill factor, physical requirements,responsibility,and working conditions are ranked.
The total points are assigned to each factor.

Merits:
It permits a more systematic comparison of jobs.
It is easier than point method, as a set of similar job are compared and ranked against each
other.

Demerits:
It goes against the common belief that the procedure of evaluating jobs and their wages
should be kept separate.
4. Job classification: this is also known as job grading. a limited number of job grades
are established based on tasks performed,skills,experience and responsibility. clear
distinctions are made between grades. the number of grades is decided first and then
detailed grade are produced.

Merits:
Jobs, people or teams can be quickly slotted into structure.
Standards to establish value are made explicit

Demerits:
Job grades are not quantified.
Difference between classification levels may not be equal.
5. Computer aided: job evaluation is done by using

computers. it features computerized checking of questionnaire

answer and automated output of both job evaluation and

relevant compensation reports. The advantage of this method is

the simplification of job analysis, ability to keep job

descriptions up-to-date, less time spent in committee meetings.
