Foundational Job Descriptions
Build a strategic performance foundation
Job descriptions are frequently overlooked but they are more than just a list of key duties or skills – they play a foundational and strategic role in ongoing talent management. An effective job description helps employees and managers understand expectations and responsibilities, providing the anchor for meaningful and effective performance reviews, goals, and development plans.
Job descriptions that contain key core competencies reinforce your unique culture, align with your organizational values and drive continued business success. Build a solid foundation for your integrated talent management programs while driving consistency and accountability by improving job descriptions.
