A job description is a useful tool to describe a position’s tasks, duties, functions, and responsibilities. They form the foundation for many important processes such as job postings, recruitment, selection, wage and hour classifications, setting expectations, compensation, training, performance management, and appropriately responding to ADA accommodation or light duty requests. Your job descriptions should be living, breathing documents that are updated regularly to reflect the changing requirements of each position.
Most managers and Human Resources staff agree that job descriptions are essential, but few HR professionals have the time or resources to routinely update them. Preparing new job descriptions and keeping them up to date can often be a tedious task, and with so many other issues that require HR’s time and attention, they often fall to the bottom of the growing list of things to do.
Let the EA assist you by reviewing and updating your job descriptions. Our HR Consultants will ensure your job descriptions reflect the essential functions of each position and are ADA compliant, including describing the physical demands and environmental conditions for each position.
