Job Descriptions That Drive Company Performance


Critical to the function of an organization is its people, so job descriptions provide hiring managers a powerful tool to help ensure that individuals with the right background and skill set are matched to the appropriate role within the organizational hierarchy, and this skill set is aligned to the needs and goals of the organization. Job descriptions also act as a baseline set of expectations that can guide performance reviews which impact potential pay decisions. A job description provides compensation professionals the necessary framework for benchmarking the organization’s jobs against the external marketplace. In addition, they provide a framework for a job posting that lets prospective job seekers understand the role and their ability to perform the responsibilities expected.

In most companies, the management of job descriptions is often cumbersome and somewhat chaotic, leading to job descriptions that become outdated over time: the process often entails Microsoft® Word or Excel documents on people’s desktops, different job descriptions for the same job in multiple locations or departments, no audit trail or process for approvals, and so on.

In this webinar, we will discuss the elements and processes for developing accurate, clear job descriptions to avoid these pitfalls.

You will learn the following best practices for developing good job descriptions:

  • Creating a consistent format for job descriptions
  • Selecting appropriate content for each unique role
  • Using automation to help manage approvals
  • Overcoming the legal and regulatory implications
  • Focusing on the mobile jobseeker- job descriptions vs. job postings
