Job Analysis

Written by

Job analysis is a tried-and-true process and absolutely foundational to accomplishing your Human Resources objectives

You know the story of the three little pigs, right?  A house made of straw, a house made of sticks, and a house made of bricks.  That big, bad wolf blew down every house but the one carefully made with bricks.   So, you’re thinking, “What does this have to do with job analysis?”

Job analysis is the solid foundation (the bricks) when it comes to all things related to the employment cycle.  Yet we often construct jobs and make employment decisions with an approach more like those “houses of straw or sticks.”  We throw all sorts of tasks together that we know we want someone to do and call it a “job.”  We make hasty decisions in recruiting, selection and placement and wonder what happened two months later.  Sound familiar? 

Job Analysis is the foundation for all assessment and selection decisions.  It’s the foundation for building an equitable compensation structure, determining training needs, and providing a legal defensibility for other personnel actions such as promotions and selection procedures.  In plain language, it is the place to start. Even before writing a job description.  

Job analysis is the place to start.  Using it as the foundation can provide data for a multitude of human resources activities, including the following:

  • Classification and Equitable Pay Scales
  • Legally Compliant Job Descriptions
  • Sound and Cost Effective Recruitment and Selection
  • Training Needs Assessments
  • Performance Appraisal
  • Disability or Return‐to‐Work Accommodation
  • Human Resource/Workforce Planning
  • Legal Defense of Personnel Actions

*Systematic job analysis has been accepted by the courts in cases involving issues of employment law.
