Job analysis is the detailed study of a position, which includes all aspects of the job, from environmental conditions to physical requirements, and a breakdown of tasks on a micro-level. It is sometimes described as a systematic study of a job and the recording of the tasks, interactions and methodology used in performing the job.
This course will take you through the stages of job analysis, along with conducting a simple job analysis and then a complex one to support knowledge and skill acquisition. Job Analysis is typically performed as a step before job carving or job creation, which in turn is part of the larger process of job development. Job development is an essential stage of the employment process where clients have barriers to employment that prevent them from undertaking the full range of activities in a particular existing role.
In the field of human resources, job analysis is described as the process of studying a job to determine which activities and responsibilities it includes, its relative importance to other jobs, the qualifications necessary for the performance of the job and the conditions under which the work is performed. An important concept in job analysis is that the job, not the person doing the job, is assessed, even though human resources (HR) may collect some job analysis data from incumbents (www.shrm.org. Accessed 25/5/2).
The Job Analysis course is part of the larger Job Development program that is underpinned by the Job Development hierarchy developed by CDERP in response to the need for a professional approach to job development that meets both the client and employer’s needs. It is recommended that course participants undertake the full Job Development program in order to develop the knowledge and skills required of today’s employment professionals.
