comparación con puestos similares
Explanation:
La explicación de Oso es excelente, pero no utilizaría el término "jerarquización", porque las limitaciones del "slotting" hacen que en algunos casos le quites jerarquía al puesto, en vez de dársela. Esto es sólo buscar algo parecido.

Saludos,

Patricia

Explanation:
Con base en la siguiente definición de este tipo de evaluación de un trabajo, propongo las palabras anotadas arriba.


Slotting: Slotting is a ranking process in which the job is compared with an existing scale and placed in the appropriate slot. This method is more intuitive and the accuracy depends on the person doing the slotting. Paired comparision procedures can be used to make the process more formal and accurate.

Limitations:

Lack of substantiating data, to justify the final results.

Provides no yardstick for measuring the relative value of jobs.

Provides little assistance for comparing jobs in different or geographically dispersed units when there is no basis for equating jobs that differ by kind of subject matter but have the same level of difficulty.

Does not provide flexibility. Does not identify changes in job content or the shift in labor market demands.

An existing pay rate or familiarity with the jobholder can unduly influence the evaluator.

Dadas todas las limitaciones de este tipo de evaluación, deduzco que es por eso que en su contexto dice "even a simple one such as slotting".

Espero que le sea de utilidad.
Saludos afectuosos de Oso :^)
