Do you have standards that dictate review of job descriptions - annually, or do you find that they are only reviewed when the position needs to be filled?
In the past we have really only reviewed job descriptions as a position needed to be filled. This year, we are having staff review their job descriptions as they do their self reviews for the performance review process. (We are in the middle of this process now.)
The Job descriptions were reviewed and reworked 2 years ago, however since then they have been edited to add a weight requirement.
Tammie Risley - Thanks for taking time to answer. Have a great weekend!
I agree with DeeAnn - it seems we only review/update our job descriptions as the need arises for new or changing positions. Unfortunately, most of ours (and we have way too many!) haven't been updated in a few years, some as far back as 2010! It would be a great idea for us to review what we have and update them accordingly, but let me ask -- who has the time?
Normally we only review when jobs need posting. However, once in a while we look at them all again. We are in the process of doing that right now. This seems to happen during our mergers to get on one pay system.
As needed, and probably not as often as we should.
Hi Lori Wright
Because we have experienced some turn over as of late, we have been reviewing them at least on a yearly basis. Sometimes with changes being made, they get reviewed more often. Now getting around to changing them is a different story and a process. So although a little choppy right now, it is being done for a number of reasons.
It depends on what's happening. For instance our auto insurance provider changed requirements a couple years ago so we reviewed most positions for whether or not driving was an instrumental part of their job, cutting that out of many jd's. We then added the new requirements into those who needed it. Just last week our Sales & Marketing department changed the job titles of 'Sales & Marketing Director' and 'Sales & Marketing Representative' to 'Lead Senior Living Advisor' and 'Senior Living Advisor', which has prompted a review of all Sales & Marketing jd's.
We do have some that have not been carefully reviewed for a 4-5 years but most get reviewed for one reason or another every 2 years.
