Welcome to our Job Description World!

Just this past week, we had an individual who was researching job description software to develop a few job descriptions for his organization. The HR professional told us that he had found two options before locating our automated job description writer. The first option/organization would have had him spend several thousand dollars at a minimum for a HRIS system that included an automated job description writer. The organization's only option for meeting this need was the software platform system. The individual's business was of a size that it was not realistic or prudent to spend $14,000 for the software. The second option was an online job description software writer for $14 dollar per job description. However, the HR person indicated that the output format was clunky and they would have spent more than $14 in labor just to modify the job description into a useable format.

Our caller mentioned to us that the best and third researched option was our DBDescriptions product due to the reasonable $295 per user annual subscription, the comprehensive job description format, the ease of software use and functionality, and the user-friendly and professional looking outputs in several formats inclusive of MSWord and Adobe PDF.

Our HR professional was excited to find a job description writer for an inexpensive investment, especially one that is not labor intensive. We welcomed this individual to our Job Description World!


Bruce Johanson will be presenting at the Oklahoma HR Association State Conference in Tulsa, Thursday, May 8 from 10am to 11:15am. The conference and presentation will be in the Downtown Tulsa Convention Center in the Brookside Room. The topic of the presentation is:

Surge Protecting Your Job Classification and Compensation Program

Learning Objectives:

1. Great organizations are built on a solid foundation of vision, mission, values and goals. A great compensation program starts with a Compensation/Benefit Philosophy Statement. You will learn how to develop a statement for your leadership team/Board to approve and use.

2. Comprehensive and defensible ADA compliant job descriptions are critical for properly classifying the organization?s positions. You will learn what should be included in a job description, how to determine whether a position is non-exempt or exempt, and inexpensive resources to assist with the completion of your job descriptions.

3. It is a proven fact that employees tend to stay longer with organizations when a fair and competitive compensation program exists and is being followed. You will learn how to build and maintain a base salary compensation program. If time permits, you will also learn how to create an effective incentive compensation plan.
