Conduct a Job Analysis
PP530-2: Design job analyses and performance appraisal systems for public sector employees.
Conduct a job analysis utilizing the job diary method to determine the best job description for the position you examine.
You may conduct a job analysis on your own job or contact a friend, colleague, or coworker and ask them if they will allow you to conduct an analysis of their job.
If you contact a friend, interview them first about their current job description. Ask them if they would complete a job diary of what they do each hour of the day for one day. Collect the diary from them. After you have reviewed the diary, conduct a comparative analysis of the job description and the actual analysis of the work completed. Do your findings tell you the job description should be rewritten? Does the job analysis support the work performed? How much time was spent doing the tasks as reported? Does the work justify the position being split?
The assessment should be completed over one day. You may conduct an assessment of your own job, of a friend’s or subordinate’s job, or you may ask a colleague to conduct an assessment of their job. Ask them to monitor their activities over an 8 hour period. It would take the participant a minute or two out of every hour to annotate the simple log. The log can be made from a simple 3” x 5” spiral notebook or annotated on a 9” x 11” sheet of paper. Some even log it on an iPad® or on their computer. It does not have to be highly technical but is typically a simple process.
Write a 2-page paper describing your findings as if you are reporting to the head of the human resource unit.
