Q6. Write a short note on the following:

  1. a) Flanholtz model (Rewards evaluation model)
  2. b) Pekin Ogan model

Answer. a)  FlanhoItz model (Rewards evaluation model)

The rewards evaluation model was suggested by FlanhoItz. It identifies the major variables that determine an individual’s value to an organisation, or in other words, his expected reliable value.

Rewards evaluation model is certainly an improvement over the model suggested by Lev and Schwarts. But when examined on operational capacity, this model falls short of a practical value in as much as those probabilities will have to be determined for each individual occupying various service states, and these probabilities will have to be determined for all employees for different periods on an individual basis.
