Outcome 2 – Pay Structure

Students will support their understanding of pay-structure design by creating three complete job descriptions that include pay structures: one for incentive pay, one for traditional pay, and one for person-focused pay. These can be developed for an organization the student is familiar with or a fictitious organization. Each description will be no more than two pages in length, double-spaced, and presented in a business-oriented document. For each, include a job title, a description of the organization, a brief summary of the job, a bullet-point list of essential job tasks, a brief description of the context of the job, a bullet-point list of key knowledge, skills, and abilities required for the position, and pay considerations in the context of pay-structure design.

You may propose an alternative project of your own design that shows attainment of the corresponding course outcome. The mentor must approve the alternative project.Students will support their understanding of pay-structure design by creating three complete job descriptions that include pay structures: one for incentive pay, one for traditional pay, and one for person-focused pay.
