We find that many organisations don’t take the time to create a well-developed and designed position or job description for the roles in their business, either because they are unsure how to do it or they don’t see the importance of having them in place.
Position descriptions are extremely important when it comes to managing HR and employment issues in your business, and especially when it comes to addressing areas such performance issues and discussions, confirming role expectations, managing organisational change and restructures, remuneration and benefits discussions. Job descriptions also essential to have available when advertising a role. When you don’t have your position descriptions current and in place it makes it extremely difficult to manage these scenarios effectively.
It is essential for your employees to have position descriptions in place so that they know what is expected of them, what their tasks and responsibilities are and their opportunities for development, so that they can perform to their greatest potential.
We make it a must with all our clients to have position descriptions in place and updated every year.
