It is a systematic exploration, study and recording of responsibilities, duties, skills, accountabilities, work environments and ability requirements of each job.  All these factors identify what a job demands and what an employee must possess to perform a job productively.

What Does Job Analysis Involve

The process of job analysis involves in-depth investigation of Job Requirements to control and measure the output and impacts the job role has on an organization.  The process helps to identify and map what each business unit and/or department requires, with what an employee should deliver.  It also helps determine particulars about a job including job title, job location, job summary, duties through to working conditions, hazardous duties, machines, tools, equipment and materials.
