LINE AND STAFF: ACRITICAL ISSUE IN ADMINISTRATION OF WAGES AND SALARY AS A FACTOR OF MOTIVATION

Antigha Okon Bassey

Abstract


This paper presents an examination of line and staff concepts which are contemporary in management discourse. The focus on these concepts was specifically on their application as a basis of determining employee remuneration. The paper maintains that most organisations pay line employees higher than staff employees, thereby breeding inter-group conflict in work places. The major effect of preferential treatment to line employees at the expense of staff employees are: industrial disharmony, low productivity, poor working relationship, distrust, envy and conflict. The paper recommended among others the review of laws establishing public organisations like health institutions in order to remove clauses that ensure preference for line personnel. Such action is expected to restore industrial harmony, as well as boost productivity of all employees and the organisations. The paper concluded that preferential wages and salary to line employees demotivates other employees and dampen their morale, resulting to decline of overall productivity.
