Job evaluation in the forest industry in British Columbia Luckhurst, Leland James
Job evaluation is a technique which has proved useful in the forest industry in British Columbia. Its major benefit has been the provision of a responsible climate for collective bargaining. A secondary benefit has been the provision for a meaningful basis of measuring productivity. The dissertation examines job evaluation in three areas. The first section studies some of the relevant theory of job evaluation as it applies to the forest industry in British Columbia. The evolution of Plywood Job Evaluation is followed by the recently introduced Southern Interior study. The concluding section ponders the future of job evaluation as it may apply to B.C. Coast Sawmills. Certainly, job evaluation comes highly recommended by this writer as a possible means of solving several of the cantankerous problems which have plagued the forest industry in British Columbia.
