How many times has it happened when asking: “What are the functions to be performed in this position?” It can seem as if someone has asked a three year old child about quantum physics. This question can be answered by doing an analysis of appropriate jobs that may have corresponding positions in you organization.

Many times companies- whether they be small, medium, or large- do not give appropriate importance to the analysis of job posts or they lack an adequate system of information. The result of this will be a terrible human resources organization: Positioning employees in roles in which they do not fit the profile, the designation of faulty duties, compensation beyond market standards, etc.

3. Determine realistic performance levels. When you know and recognize the important activities and differentiate the urgent activities, so also to additionally assess the value of each of the positions objectively.
