Job descriptions are action-oriented documents that clearly and concisely state the primary duties performed, responsibilities carried out, and requirements of a particular job.
Human Resources needs to review all newly created or updated job descriptions to determine the appropriate grade or level. The Job Description Template should be used when preparing descriptions. The classification process is interactive — requiring input from Compensation, the Human Resources Officer, and the manager or the appropriate department administrative officer. Typically, a job should not be posted until it has been titled and graded through this process.
In all cases, the classification process should be completed with Human Resources before having any discussions with employees or prospective employees.
