Morning Session: Job Analysis Workshop
Mike Willihnganz, Director of Administrative Services, Placer County Water Agency, CA
This half-day workshop will provide participants with the theory, principles, and methodology to conduct a multi-purpose job analysis. The resulting data can be used for a variety of human resources activities such as the establishment of class specifications, the design of training programs, and the development of content valid selection procedures. The job analysis approach is flexible enough to be used on any type of occupation and is applicable for small-, medium-, and large-sized organizations. Through a combination of lecture, discussion, and small group exercises, participants will acquire the knowledge needed to conduct a thorough, legally defensible job analysis.
Afternoon Session: “What Happens Next?” Discussion
Elizabeth Reed, Public Safety Testing Team Manager, City of Columbus Civil Service Commission
As personnel assessment practitioners we need to apply the science in real-world terms. We are charged with devising and implementing meaningful methods of predicting who will be successful in a myriad of jobs. We complete the job analysis and identify the critical knowledge, skills and abilities for successful performance in the job. We understand the strengths and weaknesses of various selection tools. But, how do we take this information and determine the best selection process for the job—within the reality of our organization? The selection tools we opt to use depend on a number of factors. It’s these factors that will drive our decisions. In this session, we’ll briefly discuss strengths and weaknesses of various selection tools and then we’ll focus on the factors that impact our assessment decisions in a real-world context. As time permits, we’ll discuss how to guide a change to the context in which we work.
