Traditional job descriptions are created when an organisation needs to fill its job openings and they often descend into describing tasks, responsibilities, duties, and quickly become out of date. With the pace of change in the modern world of work, no wonder they have fallen out of favour. But we all know job descriptions still have an important role to play in communicating what organisations expect from people in their jobs. What’s needed today is a new approach, one adapted to today’s workplace.
A more contemporary approach uses Success Profile and its associated pay range and a competency profile to reinstate the job description as an essential workplace tool both for individuals and the wider organisation.
