Thesis Title: Employee's views of comparable worth in Academic Institutions
I am a PhD student in the Nottingham Business School and my PhD studies concern employees’ views of comparable worth in academic institutions. The purpose of the study is to determine what factors contribute to potential inequitable treatment among university employees, and its effects on their behaviour and performance.
My research objectives are:
- to investigate whether university employees doing comparable jobs are being paid the equivalent wage
- to probe whether there are established applied legal ramifications for equal pay for comparable work within the university
- to examine the effects of employees’ attitudes to incomparable worth on job satisfaction.
I have worked in higher education institutions for over 19 years, and I am motivated to understand the issues surrounding inequity among employees. This unique study focuses on employees within the university setting and the results and recommendations can be disseminated for benchmarking in other sectors. It is hoped that the findings from this study will assist HR managers to better understand university employees’ views on comparable worth, to highlight inconsistencies, and to point to strategies that could diminish inequity vis-à-vis wages across job roles.
I currently teach on the module dealing with Foundations of Managing and Organising within the Human Resources Management Department at the Nottingham Trent University. I am supervised by Bruce Philp, Dan Wheatley and Valerie Caven, each at Nottingham Business School.
