Title:Developing Compensation Systems in Academic Libraries
Author(s):Duda, Frederick
Subject(s):Library personnel management
Abstract:Compensation, stated succinctly, is what employees get in exchange for their work. The adequacy of the compensation has great impact on the ability of an organization to meet its goals. Inadequate compensation leads to poor performance, absenteeism, excessive turnover, grievances, and strikes. Although such problems will never completely disappear, morale can be positively affected if an organization has formulated and disseminated its compensation objectives. The purpose of this article is to provide background on a complex personnel specialty rarely covered in library schools. The fundamentals for designing and administering a compensation program are covered. Emphasis is given to job evaluation systems, merit-based reward systems, compensation administration, and current issues and problems in compensation
