Exercising the Salary Ranges

Blair and I have noticed that some of our clients are not adjusting their salary ranges and this is creating some internal problems which could be avoided.  When organizations don’t adjust their salary ranges or salary steps, then department managers start getting creative with modifying job descriptions and job values with the desire to obtain an increase in base salaries for their department positions.  Once this starts to happen, then everyone gets on the bandwagon to do the same thing.  By adjusting your salary ranges every one to two years, you keep your salary ranges or salary steps close to market as well as you avoid the need to mess with changing job descriptions and job values for the sake of increasing base salaries.  Let’s keep the salary ranges near market whether you have the budget or not to adjust employees’ base salaries.
