Take the Time to Write Job Descriptions – It’s Worth the Effort

We came across a good article about job descriptions written by the classification and compensation team with Purdue University. The compensation professionals stated that well-written job descriptions are more useful than poorly prepared job descriptions and that job descriptions serve a multitude of purposes. Employees, supervisors and human resource professionals utilize job descriptions as a key HR tool for optimization of human capital attraction, retention, performance and planning. Please note who uses the descriptions and how they use them as shared by the Purdue University classification and compensation team.
