Job Description Writing

Job Description Writing (JDW)

Job descriptions are widely underestimated as an administrative aspect of human resources. On the contrary, effective job descriptions are essential for preparing future hiring objectives, improving employee productivity, and ensuring long-term workforce sustainability.

Job descriptions are a critical tool for managers. Writing an effective job description results in a thought process that helps determine how critical the job is, how it relates to others and identifies the characteristics needed by the prospective candidate.

In this course, you will understand how to write compelling job descriptions to ensure you build a high-performing team. The course activities will support your learning by having you write a job description for your team member and then reflect on your writing assignment.

Good job descriptions are vital management tools and essential documents for many reasons. Job descriptions are critical in supporting practically every employment action: hiring, compensation, promotion, improving employee productivity, and offboarding. Learn to write a job description that helps you and your employees every step of the way.
