Event Description


This webinar will provide an overview of the importance of job descriptions and the "nuts and bolts" of how to develop an effective job description. The importance of job descriptions in supporting HR processes and complying with employment laws will also be included. The discussion includes an overview of the components of the job descriptions and establishing methods to keep them current. Common pitfalls and myths about job descriptions will also be discussed.

Why should you attend: Having no job descriptions - or outdated ones - can present a host of problems in the human resources suites. Job descriptions are the foundation of every HR process, including recruitment, training, performance reviews and compensation.
