The Process - Explained
Analyze organizational strategy, structure and existing JDs by going through the relevant documents and/or meeting with senior management
In Step 1, Meirc will focus on reviewing the organization’s strategy and structure and then meet with key stakeholders. The purpose of the review and the meetings which follow, is to understand the organizational culture and to determine drivers and likely obstacles related to the project.
Meet with JD project sponsors to determine the key objectives of writing or reviewing the JDs
In Step 2, Meirc will meet with the project sponsors to confirm the main reasons for the project and the key deliverables.
Decide on optimal job analysis method and the corresponding JD format
In Step 3, Meirc will utilize the information gathered from the first two steps to decide on the most suitable approach for conducting the job analyses, and the ensuing JD format. This step is critical in the long term because it will have a big impact on how the rewritten JDs get evaluated once they are done, and how the salary scale changes as a result.
Conduct job analysis for roles which require JDs
In Step 4, Meirc will proceed with analyzing the roles by meeting with role incumbents and/or their direct supervisors/managers. These face-to-face meetings are designed to gather a comprehensive understanding of the job being analyzed. At the end of the meetings, Meirc will have the content needed to produce the drafts for the required JDs.
Prepare draft JDs and share them with stakeholders
In Step 5, Meirc will compile all the information gathered from the job analyses meetings and then use it to produce a draft for each of the required JDs. These drafts are then shared with all stakeholders who will be asked to provide their feedback.
Review and finalize JDs
In Step 6, Meirc will utilize the feedback to produce the final JDs and then present them to the project sponsors.
