The basic purpose of this volume is to help library staff design a compensation plan, with or without outside consultants. Among the new or updated topics in this edition are executive compensation, pay equity, and salary compression. In addition, information on trends in compensation in human resources and sections on job evaluation have been updated, and there are many new and updated forms. An appendix containing a  Project Work Plan and Time Line, a glossary, and an index complete the volume. This guide will help people to revise an existing plan and educate staff about the factors that influence compensation. It also will help in management's analysis of what is needed to retrain staff or to recruit necessary personnel. A practical text that managers should read, if only to enable them to improve and strengthen existing pay plans.--Hogan, Patricia Copyright 2009 Booklist

"Library Journal" İncelemesi

Filling a void in the library management literature, this readable manual by a consultant with experience in helping large and small library systems design and facilitate compensation plans ably guides administrators through the steps involved, from the decision to undertake a compensation study through implementation and administration of a compensation program. In addition to serving as a how-to, the book includes thoughtful discussions of the philosophy of compensation plans; issues and trends in compensation; and the importance of tailoring any plan to the particular library and its mission, environment, and culture. As the author tells us in the introduction, "The design and implementation of compensation and pay plans are as much an art as a science." Both art and science are respected here. Highly recommended for anyone responsible for human resources in libraries. Lyn Hopper, Chestatee Regional Lib., Dawsonville, GA (c) Copyright 2010.
