The Development of a Departmental Policy Relative to the Distribution of Salary Increases for the Faculty of the Industrial Engineering Technology Department at the Southern Technical Institute.
Bannerman, James W.
It was the purpose of a practicum to develop a policy for distribution of salary increases in the industrial engineering technology department, using modern wage and salary administration techniques and the management expertise of the faculty. The dean of the Southern Technical Institute and the department head jointly identified seven criteria for evaluation of the faculty. A five-member brainstorming team then established descriptors for these criteria and, after reviewing current literature, developed an institutional policy and procedure (appended) concerning the distribution of salary increases in accordance with measured performance against the criteria. The new policy and procedure were validated by comparing the salary distribution by the new method with the previous distribution. The new policy was found superior to the old method in every case and has been implemented on a trial basis for the next year. The establishment of similar policies by other departments is recommended. (Author/MSE)
