HR Essentials: Developing Job Descriptions
What is a job description? The general consensus is that a job description is a formal account of the responsibilities for a specific job or position within an organization. But in reality, a job description is much, much more. A well-written and detailed job description should be the foundation of your organization's entire recruiting and hiring process and the first cornerstone of your performance management plan.
In this course, we will discuss the many uses of the job description and how it can help protect the organization from legal liability. We will also learn how to develop the position standards and performance measures necessary for effective job description development. Included in this course are templates and tools your organization can use to ensure proper baselines, benchmarks and performance measures are determined for each critical task of the job and how to transform this invaluable information into an effective job description. This course will take approximately 2 hours to complete.
