The article presents information on research studies underway at University of Minnesota Industrial Relations Center. The study "Perceived equity in compensation administration," will investigate the significance of perceived equity of compensation administration. Various employee and occupational groups will be questioned regarding the various input and outcome factors which they feel are important in their jobs and their satisfaction with how these factors are taken into account in compensation administration. In addition, attempts will be made to measure the comparison standards used by these groups and their reactions. The emphasis will be upon the measurement of the perceptions of these groups in different organizational and/or compensation circumstances. The research study "Development of a psychological taxonomy of work environments," attempts for a taxonomic system for classifying work environments based on measurable psychological characteristics is being developed. The goal is a taxonomy which will facilitate job classification regardless of specific duties or task and skill requirements, thereby facilitating the matching of men and jobs.
