As an HR professional, you recognize the value of a strong, inspiring job description that reflects the culture, mission and vision of your organization. An HR DIVE article noted, “job descriptions are the blueprint to employee success” (2017). This statement sums up the importance of job descriptions and why they are such a critical piece of a successful organization. Accurate & current job descriptions provide strong job postings, talent, and employee evaluations for promotions. Job descriptions are evolving documents and are most up to date when they are consistently used, reviewed, and edited with the most current compliance standards. As a foundation of HR systems, job descriptions plan for employee futures from recruitment to retirement by allowing employees to see how their job responsibilities & achievements fit into the overall core values of the organization.
