Re: Hay's Method

Here's a brief on Hay structure ( basically my understanding of the same) :

Here it is..

Hay method: A method which will help you analyze the job based on the following parameters:
1. Know how
2. Problem solving
3. Working conditions
4. Accountability

these 4 parameters are further divided
1. Know how:
- Specialized knowledge
-Management know how
-Human relatio skills

2. Problem Solving
-Environment
-Challenge

3.Working conditions
-Sensory attention
-Physica effort
-Mental stress

4. Accountability
-Magnitude
-Freedom to act
-Job impact on end result

Now you can assign weightages to these parameters and than you can access these for each job you have in your company based on the score you get you can align them on a scale...than accordingly you can group similar jobs in one cluster and go about having a grade structure etc..this can be on a departmental or designation or on both ( you need to define your matrix).

Use your imagination on how you can benefit form this method. I hope you have got a general feel of the method. Do tell me what was the end result of your grading exercise.

Wish you luck
