Job Evaluation by Ranking Method

Job evaluation by ranking method

1. Overview of ranking

The ranking method is simple to understand and practice and it is best suited for a small organization.

Jobs are compared to each other based on the overall worth of the job to the organization. The ‘worth’ of a job is usually based on judgements of skill, effort (physical and mental), responsibility (supervisory and fiscal), and working conditions.

2. Advantages of ranking

• Simple. “Alternation” method ranks “highest” then “lowest,” then next “highest,” then next “lowest”. “Paired comparisons” method picks highest out of each pair
• Fast
• Most commonly used

3. Disadvantages of ranking

• Comparisons can be problematic depending on number and complexity of jobs
• May appear arbitrary to employees
• Rank judgements are subjective.
• Can be legally challenged
• Unreliable
• Difficult to administer as the number of jobs increases
