Job Task Analysis

Identifying and measuring the physical demands of various job roles is crucial for creating a safe, efficient workplace. DataFit’s comprehensive Job Task Analysis helps businesses make better hiring decisions and save money through objective and actionable insights.


It’s hard to make the right hiring decision when you don’t know the essential physical requirements of a job. DataFit’s job task analysis services allow you to identify exactly what it takes for job candidates to perform tasks effectively, efficiently, and with less risk of injury. In turn, your business can enjoy the following benefits.

  • Strategic Hiring: By understanding the physical demands of different roles, businesses can make informed hiring decisions that lead to a more sustainable workforce. DataFit uses accurate, reliable processes to provide meaningful data for hiring criteria.

  • Risk Prevention: Employees who aren’t physically able to complete necessary tasks are more likely to get hurt. DataFit helps you understand job demands to limit potential injuries through more informed personnel decisions.

  • Optimized Job Performance: The more your business knows about the physical requirements of a job, the better. Job task analysis can lead to better task allocation and improved employee performance since people are put in better positions to succeed.

  • Cost Efficiency: Fewer injuries mean fewer costs. Job task analysis helps reduce potential healthcare claims while indirectly reducing absenteeism, turnover, and other costs associated with unhealthy, unhappy employees.
