Download our research to learn how to write job descriptions and design processes that encourage rather than inhibit regular updates.
The high level of detail in job descriptions and lengthy approval processes are incongruent with today’s dynamic work environment.
Out-of-date, incomplete, or vague job responsibilities and descriptions lead to confusion, employee disengagement, increased risk in labor litigation, and perpetuate inequitable talent practices.
Job descriptions are not used because they’re out of date, but they’re out of date because they’re not used. To transform them into living documents that are regularly used (and not merely stored until job ads need to be created), both the templates and the process need to be simplified and the descriptions need to be integrated into multiple HR programs.
