Job Role Design
It includes deciding on the duties and responsibilities of the job holder, the way the job is done, as well as what support and resources the job holder needs. It can be done stringently or flexibly, depending on the nature and scope of the work that needs to be done.
Job design, or redesign, is a process of determining job descriptions and what the job role involves, as well as how it relates to other relevant jobs and the organisation’s structure.
The main purpose of job design is to optimise work processes, ensure the right value is created and improve productivity. This is done by clarifying roles, systems and procedures; reducing repetitive elements within and between jobs; and optimising the workers’ responsibility.
Its important to note the objectives of job design will vary according to business demands and the organisation’s approach.
