A sailor without a map is destined for an aimless voyage. Job descriptions are employees’ maps; they help them navigate the workspace and effectively use their knowledge and talents to help the organization succeed. They also help employers set realistic and fair performance assessment instruments based on what is expected from employees.
Each employee in your organization should have a job description. Following a delineated format for creating job descriptions, regardless of the employee’s position, can help you save time and money.
