Putting together job descriptions solves a multitude of problems, from the pre-hiring and recruiting process all the way through severance of employment. Many people I talk to can’t find exactly what their job description is, and often are surprised at its contents once it is “discovered.”
A great tool to determine what to include and what to leave out of the job description is the web site provided by O-Net. This site allows you to look up job descriptions for multitudes of jobs and job titles, and can allow you to see what you do (or what you should have your employees do) in each role critical to your company.
If you don’t have job descriptions in place already, this is the place to go to setup your frameworks of job descriptions.
