Hot Topic: Job Descriptions
Job descriptions are to individuals what the mission is to the organization. The mission defines the organization’s reason for being. It gives the organization identity and direction. Similarly, the job description outlines the work the organization’s paid staff, volunteers and board members are expected to do; the qualifications needed to do the work; and how and how often the individual will be evaluated. The manager, in preparing a job description, has an opportunity to reflect on the nature of the work to be done.
