The Project provides students the opportunity to apply the steps that lead up to building a compensation structure for a small industry specific organization. Students will establish compensation policies and standards by researching valid compensation survey data (BLS and NAICS) to design and build a small organization’s pay structure.


Choose one industry from the five industries provided:
• Health Care
• Education
• Manufacturing
• Retail
• Financial

Develop a small organization, one that you would find within the industry you selected from above and create the following (This is a fictitious organization that you are developing):

• Research and discuss the industry data that supports the organization you are developing. Introduce your organization and present a general overview of its purpose. Include information about the organization’s products, services, customers, etc.

• Develop a brief mission or values statement.

• Develop an organization chart that shows the reporting relationships for 15-20 separate and distinct jobs.
o Only 3-5 jobs can be managerial/supervisory jobs. Since the organization you are creating is small, the highest leadership level allowed is Manager. Managers will report to the Owner of the business.
o No CEOs, COOs, Presidents, VPs, or Directors. The organizations you are building is small and not large enough to build an executive pay structure.

• Create one description for one job in your organization using the format found on page 125, Table 6-3 in your textbook. Your description must contain the following:
o Job Title: A clear, defined title that describes the core function of the job. (Example: Accountant; Human Resources Generalist)
o Job Summary: Two to four descriptive statements that summarize the job.
o Job Duties: Five to seven major work activities (essential functions).
o Specifications: Include three to five specifications. These can be a combination of education, knowledge, skills, abilities and other qualifications an individual must possess to perform the job adequately.
o After presenting your JD discuss in your presentation how you went about developing your job description

• Apply one job evaluation method discussed in Chapter 6 to determine the value of each job to your organization. Rank the jobs from highest total job value to lowest total job value. Keep your organization’s purpose, mission, and/or values in mind as you develop the criteria you will use to determine each job’s value. Refer to the Week Four Assignment Part I for guidance.

• Research compensation data using BLS and NAICS, specific to the jobs in your organization as well as within the industry. Look at the 50th percentile for each job as a starting point. You will not be asked to develop specific pay ranges for this project. Instead you will:

o Discuss issues and trends that you may have to address from a compensation perspective as you compare your job evaluation results to the compensation data.   
o What will your organization need to do to remain competitive in the industry?
o What should you consider from a compensation and benefits perspective to attract and retain talent in your organization?

The industry I have selected for this project is Health Care. According to a 2016 study by Statistic Brain, the U.S health care industry employs 16.7 million people and generates about $1.7 trillion annually (Statistic Brain, 2016). There are 784,626 health care companies in the U.S and 64% of the industry’s annual revenues are derived from patient care (Statistic Brain, 2016). According to Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), health spending is projected to grow at an average rate of 5.8 percent per year over the next 10 years (CMS, 2016).
