Further Administrative Efficiency c. Phases of Compensation Mgmt: i. Phase – I Job Analysis: To evaluate every job using job analysis information to ensure internal equity. ii. Phase – II Job Evaluation: To determine the relative worth of the jobs in accordance to their characteristics. 1. Job Ranking: Rank the job according to its importance in comparison to other jobs in the firm through job analysis information. 2. Job Grading: Classification of the job through its relative value by matching standard description with each job description 3. Factor Comparison: Compensable/critical factors are the job elements common to all the jobs being evaluated. Each factor (responsibility, skill, mental effort, physical effort & working condition) is compared. 4. Point System: This system evaluates the compensable / critical factors for each job, but Point System. a. Determine the Critical Factors b. Determine the Level of Factors c. Allocate the Points to Sub Factors d. Allocate the Points to Levels e. Develop the Point Manual

Phase –IV Price Jobs: To determine the rate of pay based on internal & external equity. 6. Sources of Compensation Data: Wage & Salary survey data are the benchmarks against which analysts compare compensation levels. These have some inherent limitations The sources of the data includes:a. US Dept of Labour: It periodically conducts the survey of major metropolitan (urban) labour market. Some time these surveys go out of data due to fast changing labour market. b. State Unemployment Officers: They also compile the information for the employers. If compiled frequently can be useful to compensation analysts. c. Employer Association It surveys the member firms in the market. d. Professional Association: This association & above, the employer association may be the source for highly specialized jobs. e. Self Conducted Surveys: It is conducted by an affected individual or an individual org. 7. Challenges Affecting Compensation: a. Strategic Objectives: These may bring paradigm shift by adopting enhanced compensation policies other than prevailing rates b. Prevailing Wages Rates: Current market may force some jobs to be paid more than their relative worth c. Union Power: The union being the representative of workforce may be able to obtain more compensation rate than their relative worth of the job d. Government Constraints: It sets various bondages such as minimum wages, overtime pay, equal pay & other compensation related pockets e. Comparable Worth & Equal Pay: It eliminates income gap between men & women historically caused due to discrimination , working on low wages & leaving workforce due to women bond issues/obligations f. Compensation Strategies & Adjustments: Under this aspect orgs have to evolve the compensation strategies & policies to cause or facilitate the wages & salaries adjustments (one of the reasons that may be the unionised & non unionized) g. International Compensation Challenges: Compensation analysts must weigh the balance between the equity & competitiveness in the light of globalization of business as it refers to the employees on foreign assignments
