Dear Concerned


I would like to share the method we have adopted to do the job analysis and rewriting the job descriptions on the basis of the job analysis.

We are a marketing & servicing organisation of MAchine Tools.

We are spread across 28 locations across the nation and our employees are field engineers.

We from HR dept sent out a very simple mail asking to give a data of their day to day activities ( we did it as any format for job analysis would be taken as an extra job and would resist to fill as our department is at infant stage in our organisation).

This gave us a faourable response and almost 95% of the employees replied in their own languages and they felt recognised by this.

This was the data bank created of the jobs( not designation)

Then along wiht the functional heads it was segregated as per the designation and was written with

Funational Skills - Lonked to Skill Matrix
