Job Evaluation Methods Ranking: simply orders the job description from highest to lowest based on a global definition of relative value or contribution to the organization's success.

A set of compensable factors are identified as determining the worth of jobs. Page 1 of 5

The compensable factor I used based on the common factors and what I think is most important to the company. I rated each factor with it's important to the job. Before making the point method I tried to apply the ranking technique, which gave me a good view of what the structure is going to be. Evaluating Job Descriptions The job descriptions in the case was so helpful, it shows the important of each job, what is the job about, and it gave me the degree for each job. Levels of responsibilities are showing also. Job description also helps me to know skills needed for the job. Page 5 of 5
