– Capture in an eight slide PowerPoint presentation with, at least, three reliable sources supporting your response to the below scenario & five questions/points. Feel free to share personal experiences, readings, and research, if applicable.
Imagine you are a Total Rewards Manager for Front Appliance Company (FAC). Typically, you are a pretty relaxed, friendly, and easy-going manager. Although you are a no-nonsense, competent executive, you are one of the most popular managers in the company. This particular morning, however, you feel a challenge ahead.
As chair of the FAC Job Evaluation Committee (JAC), you call a late-morning meeting because several positions are up for re-evaluation. The jobs had already been rated and assigned to Pay Grade 4, but Office Manager, Ortho Janson, was upset that one of his subordinates was not given a higher rating.
To press the issue, Janson took his concerns to two executives who were members of the JAC. As a result, the two executives, Production Manager, Peter Strong, and Marketing Manager, Margo Arms, requested a second look at job ratings. Strong & Arms supported Janson’s side of the dispute, and you are not looking forward to the confrontation that is almost certain to ensue.
The controversial job is that of the receptionist. Only one receptionist position exists at FAC held by Rebecca Reichart. Reichart has been with the firm for 14 years, longer than any of the committee members. She is extremely efficient, and virtually all the executives in the company, including the president, have noticed and commented on her outstanding performance.
Strong & Arms are particularly pleased with Reichart because of the cordial manner in which she greets and accommodates customers and vendors. They feel that Reichart projects a positive image of the company.
1. You start the meeting by saying ____________________________________.
2. Before you can finish, Strong interjects: “I suggest we start with Reichart” & Arms nods in harmony. When you regain your composure, you quietly but firmly assert _________________________________________________________________.
Then you proceed to pass out copies of the receptionist job description to Strong & Arms, who is visibly irritated.
Continue in the meeting and lead the discussion in a conversational tone as if Reichart were also in the room.
3. Explain to the group why you insist that the job, not the person, be evaluated.
4. Share with the others whether or not you think there should be a maximum rate of pay for every job in an organization, regardless of how well the job is being performed. Justify your response.
5. Reichart is earning the maximum of the range for her pay grade. Discuss the ways an employee at the top of his/her pay range might be able to obtain a salary increase. Be specific and give good examples that Rebecca might also be able to apply easily to her situation.
