Job Design is the process of putting together various elements to form a job, bearing in mind organizational and individual worker requirements, as well as considerations of health, safety, and ergonomics. Job Design typically refers to the way that a set of tasks, or an entire position, is organized. Our Job Evaluation Coordinator can help you determine:
- what tasks are done
- when and how the tasks are done
- how many tasks are done
- in what order the tasks are done
- factors which affect the work
- organization of the content and tasks
Good design incorporates the relationship with organizational goals and values and should be well understood in order to align and prioritize the job’s responsibilities. The design should:
- Allow for employee input. Employees should have the option to vary activities according to personal needs, work habits, and the circumstances in the workplace.
- Give employees a sense of accomplishment.
- Include training requirements so employees know what tasks to do and how to do them properly.
- Provide good work/rest schedules.
- Provide feedback to the employees about their expected performance.
