This version will include revisions based on instructor feedback to Milestones One and Two. Note: The final project also includes a new pay mix section, below. This is not included in Milestones One and Two and must be completed prior to submission. Pay Mix: A pay mix is a company?s relative distribution of compensation components such as base pay, merit, incentives, benefits, etc. (Gerhart & Newman, 2020). Different job grades may have different pay mixes. For example, executives often have a higher percentage of long-term incentives. Pay mixes are often illustrated in a pie chart. Below is an example of a pay mix pie chart. Note: numbers used are not from the data in this case study. Create a pay mix for each job family, illustrated in a pie chart. Provide a rationale for each pay mix, connecting your decision to the company?s strategic goals. In addition, provide at least three examples of employee benefits you recommend the company propose in their total compensation package. Refer to the Add a Pie Chart resource in this module?s Reading and Resources section if you have not created a pie chart using Excel data. To complete this assignment, read theFinal Project Guidelines and Rubric document for detailed information on the requirements for this project.

To complete this assignment, read the Final Project Guidelines and Rubric document for detailed information on the requirements for this project , OL 325 Final Project Guidelines and Rubric Overview The importance of compensation varies depending on the viewpoint, as described by Barry Gerhart and Jerry Newman in Compensation. Society views compensation as a measure of justice; managers may view compensation as a major expense or a motivator; employees view compensation as an entitlement or as an incentive. Regardless of the viewpoint, fairness and equity are essential. Compensation must also be up-to-date, competitive in the market, and easy to understand. Aligned pay structures support the way the work gets done, fit the organization?s business strategy, and are fair to employees. Organizations typically task an inhouse human resource (HR) professional or hire an HR consultant to create and maintain the company?s pay structure. In this final project, you will design a pay structure using the specially designed final project case scenario. The project is divided into two milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules Three and Five. A. project case study. B. Calculate the predicted base pay for each of the following benchmark jobs: administrative assistant, operations analyst, production worker, and benefits manager. C. Create a market pay line using the following benchmark jobs: administrative assistant, operations analyst, production worker, and benefits manager. Clearly label your job evaluation points and salaries. D. Calculate the adjusted pay rates for each benchmark job based on your company?s decision to lead in base pay by 3%. E. Create pay grades by combining benchmark jobs that are substantially comparable for pay purposes. Clearly label your pay grades and explain why you combined any benchmark jobs to form a grade. F. Create pay ranges including minimum and maximum for each of the pay grades based on pay grades created in item E above. III. Pay Mix: (Note: This is a new section that was not completed in the milestone projects. This must be completed prior to Final Project submission.) Your 1-2 Assignment: New Compensation System will provide some insight into elements of a pay mix and how those components complement the compensation package. A pay mix is a company?s relative distribution of compensation components such as base pay, merit, incentives, benefits, etc., as described by Barry Gerhart and Jerry Newman in Compensation. Different job grades may have different pay mixes. For example, executives often have a higher percentage of long-term incentives. Pay mixes are often illustrated in a pie chart. A. Create a pay mix for each job family, illustrated in a pie chart. Provide rationale for each pay mix connecting your decision to the company?s strategic goals. In addition, provide at least three examples of employee benefits you recommend the company propose in their total compensation package. Below is an example of pay mix pie chart. Note: Numbers used are not from the data in this case study. The final product will be submitted in Module Seven. The final project includes a new section on pay mix which also needs to be completed prior to submission. In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the following course outcomes: Students will gain an understanding of the evolution and administration of compensation and benefit programs for organizations. Students will explore wage theory, principles and practices, unemployment security, worker income security, group insurance, disability insurance, and pension plans and how these compensation and benefit items are balanced to provide incentive and recruitment of a high-performance workforce. The connection between the organization?s mission, objectives, policies, and the implementation and revision of their respective compensation and benefit systems will be analyzed to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of such systems to the organization?s overall human resource management. At the conclusion of this course, students will be able to demonstrate the acquisition and application of theories and concepts that support the enhancement and proficiency in seven primary competencies: strategic approach, research, teamwork, communication, analytical skills, problem solving, and legal and ethical practices. Prompt You are the Human Resource Director for a premier supplier of rubber floor mats and matting that is expanding its production operations to Rockville, MD. The organization is headquartered in San Antonio, TX. Based on the organization?s mission statement, the company?s goal is to provide top-quality products with customer service that well exceeds expectations and with a strong commitment to continuous improvement. The following personnel are required to start the Rockville operation (the numbers in parentheses indicate the number of positions): Director of regional operations Assistant to the director of operations Operations analyst (2) HR director (this is you) HR administrative assistant Benefits manager Lead production worker (3) Production worker (10) Production manager HR generalist Front desk receptionist In your final project you will be designing a pay structure based on the final project case study you have been reviewing throughout the course and utilizing with your milestone activities. Specifically, you must address the critical elements listed below. I. Internal Consistency: A. Create complete job descriptions for the benefits manager and production worker position using O*NET (see Module Three Reading and Resources area). Note: There may be several versions of these positions on O*NET. You should create personalized job descriptions that are tailored to the company. B. Calculate the job evaluation points for the administrative assistant, operations analyst, production worker, and benefits manager jobs. Provide a rationale for assigning specific weights and degrees to the various jobs. Use the job descriptions you created in section one, as well as the job descriptions in Appendix A of the final project case study, as a reference. C. Create job families for all the roles at the Rockville location. The families may be illustrated in a table or bullet format. List positions within each family based on the difficulty level. Provide a rationale for why jobs were assigned to the various families. II. External Competitiveness: Calculate the weighted means of base pay for each of the benchmark jobs (administrative assistant, operations analyst, production worker, and benefits manager) from the six companies listed in Appendix B of the final Milestones Milestone One: Internal Consistency In Module Three, you will submit the internal consistency section of the final project that includes job descriptions, job evaluations, and job families. This milestone will be graded with the Milestone One Rubric. Milestone Two: External Competitiveness In Module Five you will submit external competitiveness section of the final project that includes weighted means, predicted base pay, market pay line, adjusted pay rates, pay grades, and pay ranges. This milestone will be graded with the Milestone Two Rubric. Final Submission: Designed Pay Structure In Module Seven, you will submit your final project. It should be a complete, polished artifact containing all of the critical elements of the final product. It should reflect the incorporation of feedback gained throughout the course. Note: The final project includes a new section on pay mix which also needs to be completed prior to submission. Refer to the III. Pay Mix section in the project prompt above, as well as your work on the 1-2 Assignment: New Compensation System. This submission will be graded with the Final Project Rubric. Final Project Rubric Guidelines for Submission: Your final project will be in a Word document, approximately 13?18 pages in length (plus a cover page and references) and must be written in APA format. Your Word document may include Word tables, Word lists, Excel screenshots, and rationale in written paragraphs. Use double spacing, 12point Times New Roman font, and one-inch margins.
