Everyone in Human Resources will tell you that job descriptions are a critical foundation element for effective reward, succession and management development programs. However they will likely not tell you that most everyone outside of HR hates them. Or at least they hate preparing them. And if those responsible for preparing descriptions don’t like the process, what does that say about the quality of what results? And what’s the likely impact of having poorly prepared (if at all) job descriptions?
This session is all about opening the eyes of attendees as to the value of having accurate and up-to-date job descriptions, as well as why it is the document that managers love to hate.
Companies cannot do without descriptions (really), so attendees will hear practical advice as to how to overcome resistance; how to anticipate and prepare for it, and how to create a win-win scenario with line managers. Job descriptions don’t have to hated; they can be appreciated. But you have to be careful about it.
Attendees will come away with a thorough understanding of the problem, as well as practical solutions. They will also come away with a better understanding of what they should and shouldn’t be doing.
