HumRRO has conducted hundreds of job analysis projects for organizations in the public, private, and non-profit sectors and the military.
The Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures as well as considerable legal precedent highlight the importance of grounding human resource systems in high-quality job analysis data. Therefore, when we work with our clients to develop assessments, our work is rooted in data collected through a rigorous job analysis study.
HumRRO follows a systematic data collection for each job analysis we perform. We typically begin by reviewing existing job information (such as job descriptions, prior job analysis data, and job postings) to develop preliminary task and KSAO lists for each job. We update and refine these lists through a series of iterative focus groups with job incumbents. Once lists are finalized, incumbents and supervisors complete surveys to rate the tasks and KSAOs on relevant metrics (e.g., importance, time spent performing a task, when a KSAO is acquired). The survey results are used to identify critical tasks and KSAOs.
