Business Management - Human resource management: job analysis
The HR Manager will need to assess each job within the organisation to
ensure that it is actually needed. The HR Manager must ensure that it is
quite clear what the job entails in terms of the tasks to be completed, the
skills  that the employee needs in order to perform these tasks, which
* the type of equipment required to perform the tasks
* the level of interaction between this job and others within the
* the level of performance required of the employee performing the tasks
The end result will be a clear job design with a designated job
specification  (a statement of the personal characteristics, skills,
education and qualifications, and experience required to perform the job)
and a job description  (a statement of the tasks and activities,  and
areas of responsibility associated with performing the job).
The process associated with a job analysis should commence with an
assessment and skills audit of the current position within the
organisation, followed by research relating to similar jobs carried out
within similar organisations. This process may be carried out by interview,
survey, questionnaires and/or observations.
