DMHR 555: Job Analysis for Human Resources Managers with Disability Management Responsibilities

Job analyses are fundamental to human resources management, and they inform most other HR practices. They are also critical for return to work or disability management processes. A comprehensive job analysis provides insight into the tasks and behaviors that comprise a job; the knowledge, skills, abilities and other characteristics (KSAOs) required for the job; performance standards, as well as the physical, cognitive and psychosocial demands of the job. A completed job analysis can be an effective tool to assist with injury prevention strategies, return-to-work planning and job accommodation.

This course covers the creation and interpretation of job analyses and describes how job analyses can be used not only in traditional HR responsibilities such as recruitment, training, and compensation but can also make a contribution to maintaining a healthy and productive workforce.
