    Description:

    The importance of the job analysis process cannot be overstated – yet many human resources professionals have never had the hands-on, in-depth training needed to conduct accurate job analyses.

    This interactive workshop will prepare you to conduct job analyses that provide needed information to enhance performance and minimize risk. Once you’ve mastered the data collection and analysis process, you’re ready to explore how to enhance work processes through job design and re-design. You will learn about the different approaches to job design, when each is most appropriate, and how to apply them to the jobs in your organization.

    Finally, you will be able to write meaningful job descriptions that inform the recruiting, interviewing and selection of employees; guide employees as they perform their work, and provide managers with the information they need to lead high-performance work teams.
