Compensation System and Performance Management


SKU: 3084233e3576 Category:

The book Compensation System and Performance Management is in three parts. The first part of the book deals with compensation management. It is one of the most important and strategic aspects of human resource management. It is a dynamic and complex field involving many workable principles and procedures. Laying down a sound compensation system and its implementation is one of the most complex assignments in an organisation. Over a period of years, the payment systems have taken different shapes and acquired multiple characteristics due to the rapidly changing technology and socio-economic transformation of the society. Consequently, different patterns of wage payment and methods of wage fixation began to assume an important role in the management of personnel in enterprises. In this context, the book deals with the concepts, theories, issues, and the practical application related to traditional and modern compensation, wages, and reward systems in India.

The second part of the book covers performance management. A performance management system is a process of identifying, encouraging, measuring, evaluating, improving and rewarding employee performance.It provides information to employees about their performance; clarifies what the organisation expects; identifies development needs; and documents performance for personnel records. Strategic human performance in organisations is a function of three interrelated elements i.e., employee skills, employee motivation, and employee strategic focus. A thorough understanding of organisational objectives combined with knowledge of common errors in evaluation can make a significant difference in the quality of appraisals. Against this backdrop, an attempt has been made to present different dimensions of performance management including performance trends and perspectives.

The third part of the book contains appendices, bibliography, and index.
