Upper Saddle River, N.J. – February 15, 2006 – It has become increasingly important to update job descriptions specific to employee’s actual duties rather than being paid for their title alone. Having a job description lays out the clear understanding of the employee’s duties and responsibilities. However, simply having a description given to a title upon hiring is not enough in order to accommodate a company’s needs efficiently. Therefore, handing out position description questionnaires (PDQs) to each employee and asking them to explain their duties, skills, education, etc. in detail will help management decide on whether or not to change the employees’ responsibilities or make steps to rightsize, downsize, or even promote an employee.
The need for a PDQ is very important in order to have a company function with a successful and comprehensive environment. The PDQs educate management on:
¨ Performance measures
¨ Organize accountability within departments
¨ Identify hiring measures should there be a need to fill the position
¨ Eliminate the duplication of responsibilities, and provide legal protection when hiring with respect to disability accommodations, and so forth.
