  1. 1. Person Focus to Pay Dr. G C Mohanta, BE, MSc(Engg), MBA, PhD(Mgt) Professor Al-Qurmoshi Institute of Business Management Hyderabad
  2. 2. Person Versus Job Based Pay Fredrick Taylor in Scientific Management focused on the basic elements of the job Lead to job focused way of organizing work Criticisms of job based structure Reduces flexibility “Not my job” syndrome Little reason to acquire information & skills outside of narrow job Doesn’t help people understand what other people do
  3. 3. Person Focus to Pay Pay-for-Knowledge Skill Based Pay Competency Based Pay
  4. 4. Skill Based Pay Pay is tied to skills, abilities & knowledge that an individual possesses - Manufacturing jobs - Flexibility to re-assign people to where work is needed Depth: pay for having a deep level of knowledge within a job e.g. teachers pay increases with amount of education: bachelors, masters, doctorate degree Breadth: Pay for generalist knowledge
  5. 5. Breadth Increased pay for more knowledge Pay increases come with certification of new skill ◦ e.g., Microsoft Certification; SHRM Certification ◦ Skill certification can also come from internal assessment Employees can be assigned to new jobs, based upon certification Pay increases with the more certifications held For example: 75.00 base pay + 10.00/hr for skill in each machine
  6. 6. Why Skill Based Pay?  Ensures workers have needed skills ◦ Assumes good tests  Supports the organizational work flow ◦ Workers trained & ready to move to assignments as needed  Fairness ◦ Depends on how training conducted ◦ Who pays for training ◦ Means two people doing same task at different pays  Motivation ◦ Motivation is to get training, not necessarily to perform task well
  7. 7. Skill Based Pay Employees accept skill based pay Where Certification procedures are viewed as fair It is easy to communicate Whether Productivity is increased? Mixed results 61% of those implementing SBP, were using it 7 years later Depends on strategy more compatible with innovation, not low cost Usefulness varies based upon setting
  8. 8. Competencies What are competencies? Skill /expertise that can be learned & developed Knowledge (accumulated information) Self concept (attitudes, values, self image) Traits (general disposition to behave in a certain way) Motives (thoughts that drive behavior) Competencies - characteristics of the person: personality, attitudes, knowledge, skills & behaviours
  9. 9. Competencies Knowledge & Skills: Essential characteristics for the job Can be tested: Observable and Measurable Self concepts, traits, & motives Not Directly Measurable must be inferred from actions Self concept (identifies with the team) Trait (flexibility) Motive (drive to produce results) Much more parameters subjectively assessed
  10. 10. Core Competencies Derived from mission statement: values & attitudes JetBlue embraces five values that represent the company and create its unique culture: Safety, Caring, Integrity, Fun and Passion
  11. 11. Competency Effectiveness  Organization Strategy ◦ Competencies are likely to fit with organization’s strategy  Work Flow ◦ Competencies are designed to convey values and enhance work flow ◦ Effectiveness likely to depend upon culture  Fair to Employees ◦ Empower employees to take charge of own development ◦ Subjective  Motivation towards organization’s objectives
