Job Analysis and Job Evaluation

Job Evaluation is the systematic process of analyzing the contents of jobs to determine the relative worth of jobs within and across institutions. Job Analysis and evaluation exercises were undertaken in 2006 with benchmark jobs in the public services on the basis of the following four broad job factor groupings: 

  • Knowledge and Skill 
  • Responsibility 
  • Working Conditions; and
  • Effort 

THESE FOUR BROAD FACTORS WERE DIVIDED INTO 13 SUB-FACTORS AS FOLLOWS: 

KNOWLEDGE AND SKILL 

  • Knowledge (required for satisfactory performance of job duties)
  • Learning Experience (practical work experience required to perform the job duties satisfactorily) and
  • Judgment (exercising judgment in decision-making)

RESPONSIBILTY 

  • Consequence of Error (consequences of error in decision-making); 
  • Financial responsibility (responsibility for financial resources); 
  • Responsibility for Assets (responsibility for assets and people-patients, students, inmates, goods, tools, equipment, etc) 
  • Supervisory responsibility (supervision of others) and; 
  • Responsibility for relationships (responsibility for effective handling of personal contacts with staff, clients, visitors, general public, government officials, private sector, etc.) 

WORKING CONDITIONS/ENVIRONMENT 

  • Working environment (exposure to undesirable conditions); and 
  • Hazards (frequent exposure to hazards or the safety requirement under which the work is performed).

EFFORT 

  • Dexterity (the level of physical agility required by a job); 
  • Physical effort (physical fatigue that results from performing the duties of the job and; 
  • Mental effort (mental, visual and auditory fatigue that results from per-forming the duties of the job).
