Writing Job Descriptions – Easy Steps To Writing Accurate and Defensible Job Descriptions

Duration: 90 minutes

Speaker: Teri Morning



Webinar Description

Considering all the ways job descriptions are used in today’s workplace, it is critical that an employer describe a job accurately. It is imperative that a job description clearly explain what a person in a given position does, what are the functions to be performed, the performance expectations, expected responsibilities, and applicable working conditions.

Inaccurate job descriptions create miscommunications, misunderstandings, and can even result in employees focusing on the wrong priorities. Job descriptions for managers, especially upper management positions, need to be more outcome focused than those used for front line jobs that are largely task focused. Your VP of Marketing does not really need a task list, right?


A job description is the first document examined in an internal employment dispute and is also the first document reviewed in a legal dispute or during a regulatory agency’s investigation. Since your job descriptions are used for such a myriad of critical HR purposes, make sure they help achieve your human capital goals.
