A Plan for Conducting a Comprehensive Wage and Salary Study.
Holmes, C. Thomas; Brown, Carvin L.
Successful salary and wage studies require the establishment of a study team, access to documentation, and the participation of school district personnel. Team leadership can be supplied by the personnel department or by the use of a consultant. If only consultants are employed, a steering committee should be established to furnish information to all personnel. The first phase of Part 1 of the suggested plan involves a review of the documentation and preparation for the subsequent studies; the second phase involves an analysis and rating of the positions and an assessment of function placement; the third phase involves the insertion of jobs into salary and wage schedules or into sections of a unified salary and wage schedule; and the fourth phase involves the classification of job descriptions. In the first phase of Part 2, the salary, wage, and classification data are gathered and examined; in the second, salary and wage schedules are developed; and in the third, jobs are inserted into salary and wage schedules or into sections of a unified salary and wage schedule. The first and second phases of Part 3 involve the development of a management plan; the second two involve the development of a method for salary compensation. One figure is included. (RG)
