Job Evaluation of executive jobs in Australia

Attwater, Wendy (2004) Job Evaluation of executive jobs in Australia. Working Paper. Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia.


Job evaluation has been used for more than half a century to determine the 'size' of a job and to guide the appropriate level of remuneration. However, although the nature of work has changed significantly, job evaluation has not, but despite this it is still surprisingly popular. Much of the literature that describes these issues focuses on the link between job evaluation and remuneration in general. However there is a notable gap in the investigation of the specific issues related to the way executive jobs are evaluated and rewarded. This paper reports on a study that uses grounded theory and convergent interviewing techniques to investigate this gap within a number of publicly listed Australian companies.
