Do Your Job Descriptions Still Fit?


Almost everyone has clothes in their closet that no longer fit. Admit it; things change, whether it's the fashion or you. In fact, some of those clothes probably never really fit, despite your alterations and efforts. Maybe you thought you would "grow" into them. Or maybe you thought you looked good enough. No problem.

Now picture your company's job descriptions. Do they still fit today? Did they ever really fit? Maybe the company got them off the rack and added an employee's name without regard to whether the job description actually "described" the job expected to be performed. Or maybe the job description was accurate when created but, as the job changed, the written description of the job did not. No matter how it happened, a bad fit is a bad fit. In the case of job descriptions, a bad fit is probably more serious than a fashion mistake.
