Functional Job Analysis

What is Functional Job Analysis ?

‘Functional Job Analysis’ refers to the qualitative analysis of job designations and gathering data based on the employee’s role in the company. This kind of information gathering helps in procuring vital information which can be used to document future job descriptions for the role.
It was developed by the Employment & Training Administration of the United States Department of Labor for standardizing the information related to individual job roles.
Functional job analysis accumulates data from the following 7 factors related to a job role: things, data, worker instructions, reasoning, people, maths and language.
Although FJA provides a better understanding of the employee and their role, it is hard to standardise it due to the qualitative aspects involved.
