FICSA workshop on the GS salary survey methodology II (non-hq duty stations)
- 19 November 2012 - 23 November 2012
- New Delhi, India
- FICSA Workshops
FICSA will be holding a Workshop on the General Service salary survey methodology II (non-headquarters duty stations) in New Delhi, India, from 19 to 23 November 2012.
The Workshop will be held under the kind auspices of the WHO Regional Office for South-East Asia with the kind assistance of the WHO/SEARO Staff Association and conducted in English by a FICSA Resource Person.
The workshop is open to staff representatives and participants irrespective of their duty station of assignment. However, participation is intended principally for staff serving in Asia. Duty stations earmarked for comprehensive salary surveys in the next few months are highly recommended to attend.
The aim of the workshop is to enhance the knowledge of salary survey techniques to the maximum extent possible by providing participants with a detailed overview of the methodology in force at field duty stations, covering survey participants roles and responsibilities as well as due proceedings. Basic concepts related to the system of job evaluation and job classification will be dealt with. Within the framework of the methodology, the following phases will be analyzed: preparatory work, data collection, data analysis, construction and approval of the new salary scale. Interim adjustment procedures and special measures (inflation, devaluation and other situations) will be reviewed as well.
Please note that these workshops are offered free-of-charge to staff representatives from FICSA dues-paying members (see footnote 1).
A fee of CHF 550 is charged for other participants, including staff representatives from non-FICSA member organizations.
A reduced fee of CHF 450 per person is charged in the case where two or more participants are enrolled from the same organization and duty station.
For FICSA members with consultative or observer status (from organizations not listed in the footnote), a 30% discount is applied on the total amount.
