TTS conducts job/task analyses for multiple job positions across many industries, specializing in the maintenance and operations fields. A job/task analysis is a study that identifies the skill and knowledge requirements needed by employees to perform their jobs. This systematic process documents the entire job in compliance with professional and legal guidelines.
In today’s competitive world of employment, a job/task analysis should be the first step in every major human resources effort. A job/task analysis provides the objective criteria management needs to make informed decisions regarding selection/ hiring, job performance, and compensation. In today’s litigious society, a job/task analysis helps companies develop a selection system that is valid and legally defensible under EEOC laws.
Conducting a job/task analysis is important because companies are being asked to work more with less. In addition to determining the critical tasks of a job, it is crucial to identify the desired knowledge, skills, and abilities of an employee. Job/task analysis serves as the foundation for selecting the right people into your organization. A job/task analysis allows companies to not only create better hiring systems, but also develop effective training programs. If an organization’s hiring/promotion practice is challenged legally, the court will look to see if a job/task analysis was done properly, and if the selection system is, in fact, job-relevant.
The job analysis information gathered summarizes the primary tasks and duties of a job, as well as the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to perform those tasks. It can also include information about the context in which the work is performed, such as work equipment, materials, and working relationships with others.
Employees in the position being analyzed participate in the job/task analysis since they know the job better than anyone. You can include management, supervisors, and anyone who has critical knowledge about the job. In addition, include those who understand the training and development function.
