We are implementing a project to evaluate jobs. Naturally, people are nervous. Many think the company is trying to find out who is underpaid or overpaid. (That’s not the case; this is simply a long-overdue project.) But people remain skeptical. How can we convince them the evaluation is not being done in preparation for cutting jobs?
We have developed several workforce programs and manager tool kits, such as “career planning” and “mentoring.” These programs were developed in response to a directive from our CEO. Yet, although our business executives seem pleased that we have these programs, I'm struggling to get their ongoing support as we try to implement them. (These programs need the support of the business leaders—they can't be HR initiatives.) How am I to overcome this and build enthusiasm so our efforts won't be in vain?
How do we go about grading our employees properly and objectively?
How can I get my managers to complete performance reviews in a timely manner? Their approach is pretty scattershot and that makes it hard for us to evaluate talent.
