Job Analysis as an Important Feature of the Recruitment Process

0 Comment

Human resource managers often consider job analysis as an important component of the recruitment process. This is primarily due to the fact that both the local and international businesses that exist today are very dynamic aside from the fact that most of these companies are heavily relying upon the use of high-communication technology (Hough &amp. Oswald 2000, p. 632). As part of addressing the question “why job analysis is considered an important feature in the recruitment process”, a literature review will be conducted in this particular study.
To enable the reader to have a better understanding of the topic argument, the definition of job analysis will first be provided followed by discussing its main purpose. To be able to prove that the absence of job analysis could result to some negative effects in the overall business performance of a particular organization, some examples related to the work potential and/or efficiency of employees within a business organization aside from the profitability of a company will be discussed as a way of giving emphasis on the importance of job analysis in recruitment process. In the process of going through the main discussion, the benefits and impact of job analysis in the general recruitment and selection process will be highlighted. Prior to the conclusion, the significant connection between job analysis, recruitment, and selection process including the importance of developing attractive employment packages will be examined.
According to Dessler (2000), job analysis is referring to the “procedure for determining the duties and skill requirements of a job and the kind of person who should be hired for each available job vacancy” (Dessler 2000, p. 678).&nbsp.
