Do your employees know exactly what their job description is?
Our experience and research has found that companies with clear job descriptions helps prevent the threat of employee/employer disagreements as to what the employees job entails and increases productivity.
Additionally, job descriptions have been found to clarify and enhance communication between the employer and the employee and are critical in supporting employment actions, compensation, promotion, discipline, recruitment and termination of employment.
Job descriptions should usually consist of (but are not limited to) the following information:
· Employee status
· Who the employee directly reports to
· Job summary
· Education and experience
· Certificates, licenses, and registrations that are required
· Physical requirements
· Work environments
It is also extremely important to include details about being flexible and undertaking certain other tasks on condition they are responsible within the employees capability and salary/responsibility threshold.
