(Human Resource Administration)
Use one of the job evaluation methods identified in chapter 11 of the Dessler text (which I have attached) to establish the relative worth of the following hospital jobs:

FLOOR FINISHER: Operates 19-inch, floor scrubbing machine. Uses various chemicals to remove old finishes from floors and cleans carpets. Uses mops and buckets to clean up residue from floor stripping and applies new finishes. Must have ability to examine old finishes, identify their type, and mix chemical solutions to desired strength to remove old finishes without ruining floor surfaces. Must be able to identify various types of terrazzo and tile flooring composition and use appropriate cleaning agents. Must know several types of polymeric floor finishes and appropriate application to floor surfaces

1. Establish the relative worth of these jobs using a job evaluation method and provide a rationale for your conclusions.
2. Use this information to develop an incentive plan and provide a rationale for your incentive strategies.
