Job Descriptions

Job descriptions are important components of more comprehensive personnel, organizational, and administrative systems or plans. They can and should be used not only for recruitment and promotion, but as tools to assist in the administration of the municipal government. They help define initial expectations, provide fundamental building blocks for administering compensation systems, and give additional definition to organizational charts.  HRS provides its clients with online job descriptions, making it easier to share, edit and manage job descriptions through sharefile capabilities.  Additionally, custom online position analysis can be conducted utilizing HRS' Position Analysis Questionnaire (PAQ) and video-conference meetings.  With state-of-the art technology and enhanced tools, we can better assist our clients through the job audit and job description development process. 

HRS provides a standard methodology for developing contemporary and uniform descriptions. This procedure involves an analysis of each job which includes a review of the necessary qualifications as well as the position’s essential functions or job duties, and physical and mental requirements of the job. Job descriptions should be reviewed and updated regularly to ensure accuracy. Positions can change for many reasons: an incumbent starts assuming more responsibilities in addition to the duties in the job descriptions; staff changes; changes in procedures and processes; new technology, tools, or machines; external regulations or legislation; reorganization occurs; new supervisor or manager.

Our job descriptions are ADA compliant and include the necessary federal, state, and local requirements for each position. 

We have written job descriptions for every size organization and every industry.  Job descriptions are also standardized in format, describe what workers do on the job, working conditions, the training, education and experience needed, and the specific knowledge ability and skills required.  HRS will work closely with your community to ensure they are custom to your positions' requirements and organizational needs.
