It is a document that describes the duties, functions and responsibilities of the job and It outlines the details of who performs a specific type of work, how that work is to be completed and the frequency and purpose of the work in relation to the organization’s mission and goals.
Why developing job descriptions is considered as cornerstone to any organization?
Before you wait for high performance results from your employees, they need to know what is expected of them, what they have to achieve and how their performance will be measured.
A clearly developed job description shall include and clarify all of the above. Therefore, it is an indispensable input for so many processes during the employee lifecycle in the organization such as recruitment, training & development, performance management and performance evaluation.
Without having a clearly developed job description, most of the decisions taken in the employee recruitment and development will be highly subjective and not based on a clear reference.
We at Bakkah can use our extensive experience to prepare job descriptions for you through the following steps:
- Conducting a Job analysis: by which we gather information from the key stakeholders (jobholders and supervisors) and apply analytical methods to identify the essential elements of each job.
- Identifying the Tasks, Duties and Responsibilities (TDR).
- Identifying Job Specifications including the required Knowledge, Skills and Abilities for each position
- Building a Job description template that is matching the purpose.
