Explain briefly Remuneration of Employees and Scalar Chain as principles of general management.
Remuneration of employees: Employees in the organisation must be paid fairly or adequately to give them maximum satisfaction. Remuneration must be fair and just because if employees are underpaid, then they will not be satisfied and an unsatisfied person can never contribute maximum to the organisation. Dissatisfaction will lead to increase in employee turnover. To have stability in the organisation and to receive maximum benefits from employees, they must be paid fairly based on financial capacity, wages and salaries paid by competitors and keeping in mind the Minimum Wage Act of the government.
Scalar chain: A scalar chain refers to a pre-defined, formal path of authority and communication in the order of highest to lowest. For example, A is the project manager in an organisation, and he further has a project lead (B) and a team member (C) under him. So, the chain of communication would be A-B-C. Suppose there is another hierarchical order wherein he has a team manager (D) and a team member (E), i.e. the chain of communication is A-D-E. Now, if C wants to communicate with E, then he would follow the communication path C→B→A→D→E. That is, C would first contact the higher authorities (C→B→A) who would then send the message to E(A→D→E)
