ABSTRACT

The engineering industry is using a grade system to manage human resources. The grading system, which is based on the national technical qualification, experience and academic background, poses problems such as the operation driven by technical qualification, Incompatibility with market demand due to lack of evaluation of experience and professionalism, and distortion of the unit price. This instability in human resource management acts as a drag on the development of the engineering industry based on professional and creative skills. With the recent changes in the technological environment, the value and development of the engineering industry is drawing attention; Therefore, the improvement of the human resource management system is urgently needed for the Korean engineering industry to secure competitiveness in the global market. The current engineering industry legislation classifies professional workers with the national technical qualifications. In the classification of the grade system, it consist of elements such as the existence of technical qualifications, experience period, and degree rather than field experience or practical experience. Because of the evaluation criteria of this grade system, technical workers are focusing on obtaining qualifications rather than building practical knowledge or expertise in the industrial field. The grade system based on qualifications leads to the irrationality of evaluating the workforce according to the presence or absence of qualifications rather than the expertise. On the other hand, enterprises are becoming the main cause of inefficiency by recruiting technical qualification holders rather than their ability to carry out projects. The qualification system performs the function representing the ability to perform a specific task. The evaluation of the human resources should be comprehensive, including qualifications, experience and educational background of individual, and practical task performance capabilities. In this paper, we examines main limitations of the current human resources system in the engineering industry, and suggests improvement of the human resources management system required for the developments of the engineering industry.
