Job Analysis in the Virtual World: Maintaining Engagement with SMEs and Clients

Organizations are reacting in different ways to the COVID-19 outbreak, but the biggest change is flexible or 100% remote work arrangements for the majority of workers. So what does this new reality mean for I/O practitioners that depend on gathering and analyzing detailed job-related data from subject matter experts (SMEs) or in-person observations? Job analysis and competency modeling, the bread and butter of I/O psychology, require good data to accurately dissect job tasks, define work behaviors, and determine the right solution.  However, our research and experience has shown that gathering data and engaging SMEs can be difficult in a purely virtual environment.

Session 1 (10AM - 12PM): Fundamentals of job analysis including similarities and differences between job analysis and competency modeling.

Session 2 (1PM - 3PM): Best practices for engaging SMEs in our new virtual COVID-19 environment -- even with kids and pets in the background.
