Job analysis
Job Analysis is a process to establish and document the 'job relatedness' of employment procedures such as training, selection, compensation, and performance appraisal. (Jobanalysis)
Thus job analysis provides information about the actual functions that are carried out on job by employees. The job analysis helps the HR understand the nature of each job. This is essential for recruitment where it is important to have a complete job description. In addition, the job analysis helps the HR develop a fair and equitable package of compensation. Moreover, the job analysis helps the HR develop criteria for performance evaluation and implement them correctly.
Job analysis helps the HR to hire correctly, structure the organization in an effective manner and compensate the employees in an equitable manner. Most importantly, job analysis helps the HR to develop a comprehension of each job and the level of skills that are required to do the job effectively.
Job profile is the list of activities or tasks one would be expected to do once appointed for the job. Job and task analysis is performed as a preliminary to successive actions, including to define a job domain, write a job description, create performance appraisals, selection and promotion, training needs assessment, compensation, and organizational analysis/planning.

During the analysis a job is analyzed on the basis of the duties and tasks one would have to perform, the environment, tools and equipments, relationships and requirements. Thus it helps in jobless environment too as it will make the expectations clear.
