HR professionals in the NHS have welcomed a new job evaluation scheme thatwill form the foundation of the new Agenda for Change pay system. The Agenda for Change package, which is initially to be piloted at 10 NHStrusts in the UK, is designed to raise wages and modernise pay scales. It willalso provide incentives for NHS staff to develop their skills. Under the scheme, 200 national profiles are being prepared for all jobs,except for doctors, dentists and senior mana- gers, to help calculate scores todetermine where staff should be placed in the new pay bands. Elaine Way, president of the Association of Healthcare Human ResourceManagement, believes the initiative will boost morale by ensuring equal pay. “In terms of staff morale, it is essential that staff know they arepaid fairly, relative to others in the organisation. The NHS job evaluationsystem will support this – particularly as it has been developed openly on apartnership basis,” she said. The job evaluation process involves the creation of a ‘matching panel’,comprising local staff representatives and employers who will gather jobdescriptions of all their staff. Every person’s job will be fed into a computer programme to determine apoints score for their job description, which will be matched to the nationaljob profile, determining basic salary www.doh.gov.uk Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos.last_img read more
