    THE EFFECT OF OFFICE POLITICS UPON THE IMPLEMENTATION AND MANAGEMENT OF THE JOB EVALUATION PROGRAMME: AN ANALYTICAL VIEW
    Muhammad Ali El-Hajji

    This paper concentrates on the negative office politics and negative ‘office ‘politicians’ by simply identifying their divisive effect in context with the implementation and management of the job evaluation programme within organisations along with the difficulties that this can cause both the programme’s committee or management and the employees whose jobs are to be evaluated. It does this by way of example and not because the former (office politics) is considered an exclusive phenomenon of the latter (job evaluation). From here this paper traces the sources of power for those office ‘politicians’. Simultaneously it suggests counter-measures (prophylactic and remedial) by which both the harm caused by and the virulent effect that can result from such unhealthy office politics in relation to the job evaluation programme can be inhibited or marginalized. The purpose and consequence of these counter-measures are to fortify the programme’s processes and outcomes against the office political ploys and tactics. Our experience of teaching this discipline for more than two decades with a further decade in education and the business sector is the backbone upon which this work is established.
