Our HR conducts job study activities regularly to keep check on the performance of the employees through various methods like by reviewing the job responsibilities of the current employees with the help of questionnaire and face to face interviews. They gather information about capability and efficiency of the employees by doing job study. They also gather information about the issues and challenges faced by the employees in performing their duties through their job study method. If they find any problem they update the job description and make the job more challenging to improve the performance of the employee.

Our HR uses various techniques for job designing like first they explore the task and then do sorting and evaluation of tasks. Then job responsibilities are designed based on the task so that employee can perform it smoothly.

Job analysis is based on real employees and their real duties. They do it by various methodologies like they apply observation method where they directly observe the employee and record their behavior, activities and task. For example our job analyst visit us sometimes in working hours and observe our way of working, they sometimes do ask questions of our way of doing tasks.

They also apply interview methods sometimes where they ask questions to both incumbents and supervisors in either an individual or a group setting, they also use questionnaire sometimes to relate employees with their job responsibilities.

In my organization HR make job description by reviewing the job responsibilities, analyzing the work duties, task and responsibilities to fill the position, researching other similar jobs of the similar companies through internet.
