TRI-SERVICE CONFERENCE ON THE ROLE OF JOB EVALUATION TECHNIQUES IN THE STRUCTURING OF MILITARY OCCUPATIONS, WASHINGTON, D. C., APRIL 25, 26,
OFFICE OF NAVAL RESEARCH WASHINGTON D C
This report is the fourth in a series of five conferences. The planning for this conference identified three rather distinct occupational levels. These were managerial, scientific and high-level technical, and blue collar. It was generally agreed that modern military developments were creating greater numbers of managerial, scientific, and technical jobs to be held by men in uniform. It was further agreed that existing job evaluation techniques had been developed primarily for the purpose of evaluating blue-collar jobs and might not be well suited to the evaluation of jobs at higher levels. Consequently, three consultants were engaged to review and describe job evaluation research and practices in industry. Their presentations constitute Part I of the conference. Part II covers two important military research efforts in job evaluation. Part III consists of explicit statements of the actual job evaluation procedures employed in the respective services at the time of the conference. A closed session was hed which permitted the service representatives and the consultans to discuss the presentations and to consider various research approaches. The main points of these discussions are summarized briefly in the Summary of the Proceedings. Author
