Removing the “I HATE” statement from Developing Job Descriptions

Chuck Csizma, CCP with CMC Compensation Group wrote a recent article for the Compensation Café blog where he described how managers HATE/Dislike having to write job descriptions for the positions under their authority. Chuck provided several reasons why the Managers and Supervisors avoid this laborious task like the plague.

Bruce and I have undergraduate degrees in Human Resources Management and a Master’s of Business Administration from the Sam M. Walton School of Business at the University of Arkansas Fayetteville campus. We each have in excess of 30 years of experience in HR and business management and we have observed and experienced Chuck’s description of how managers hate to develop or edit job descriptions. Our father, an HR professional and second career professor of management started our family consulting firm in 1973 and he encouraged his sons to find ways to improve the Human Resources function for our employers when employed during our early careers and now for our consulting clients.

DBSquared, LLC was formed when Dale Oliver, CTO/Principal of DBSquared joined with Bruce and me to develop an automated compensation management system that would improve our efficiency with job evaluation and compensation studies for our consulting company clients. Out of the DBCompensation software development, DBDescriptions was derived by offering an efficient online job description writer that would help HR professionals and all the directors, managers and supervisors that hate/dislike to develop or edit job descriptions.

We’re excited about the momentum of interest and the number of new DBDescriptions software subscribers and most of all, we know that DBDescriptions is taking away the angst of developing ADA compliant job descriptions which are a critical management tool for organizations and companies.
