Fostering complacency around creating and updating job descriptions often results in:

  • Inaccurate, incomplete, and unclear job descriptions, increasing organizational risk.
  • Increased disengagement due to confusion of role requirements.
  • Negative impacts to hiring process cost and effectiveness.

Developing a simple process that removes the burden of creating, updating, and maintaining job descriptions leads to:

  • Effective hiring and retention of candidates that fit the role and expectations.
  • Increased engagement and commitment to the organization.
  • Relevant and accurate job descriptions that are valuable to HR, managers, and candidates.
