40. Which one of the following items is not a part of job specification?

  • Option : C
  • Explanation : Job Specification: Job specification or employee specification is a statement which answers the question, “What human qualities and traits are necessary to do the job well?” It is a written record of the physical, mental, social, psychological, and behavioural characteristics which a person should possess in order to perform the job effectively. In contrast to the job description it is a standard of personnel and designates the qualities required for acceptable performance. A job description is a profile of the job. A job specification, on the other hand, describes what the job demands of the employee and the human skills that are required. It is a profile of the human characteristics needed by the person performing the job. It is a statement of essential and desirable attributes, which a person must possess. It contains information in terms of education, experience, training, judgement, initiative, physical effort, physical skills, communication skills and emotional characteristics.
