HR decisions determine e.g. whether an applicant will get the job as a back office assistant in an international well positioned stock exchange enterprise or not. Or whether a long-serving accounts clerk will be promoted obtaining the team leader position in a leading pharmacy company or not. Or whether a line manager will receive a warning-letter for several consecutive absences without valid excuses or not. Every single HR decision made entails eminent consequences and must be well-considered and to the point.

Regardless who has to make all these decisions, whether an organization's HR department as an internal service provider, or a contracted service provider external to the organization in need of making a specific HR decision, both have one thing in common:

They have to accomplish an occupational assessment preceding the decision in order to enable it being made at all.

And, the more appropriate the preceding occupational assessment process is, the more appropriate and the less inaccurate the consecutive decision based on it will be.
