Job Analysis & Documentation

Identify appropriate job description formats for different job levels, guidelines for preparing effective descriptions, and understand the type of information that should be included.

Changing legislation and an increasing focus on pay equity has made base pay structure design an important topic for organizations. The first two steps in the design process are job analysis and documentation. Job analysis is a systematic process for obtaining important and relevant information about each distinct role played by employees. Job documentation consists of written information about the job and typically takes the form of a job description which identifies, defines and describes the most important features of a job.

When properly developed, job descriptions have the potential for a wide variety of applications.
