This is Part IV of our four-part series on job descriptions and performance evaluations, two tools that are underestimated in the operation of any department or business. Last week, we discussed that the two are inter-related. We suggested using the essential functions from the job description to create the performance eval document, and assign a rating scale to each task. Today, we will wrap up our conversation and show you an example of a performance evaluation.

Job Descriptions and Performance Appraisals - Who Needs 'Em?! (Part III) Print E-mail

Last week, we discussed the need for job descriptions for each position in your company. Smart managers quickly realize that the formality of a job description is paramount to the employee's understanding of where the job fits in the organization's structure and the major elements of the position. As we discussed, job descriptions needn't be too fancy; as long as you summarize the essential functions and requirements, you're light years ahead of your peers. In part III of this four-part series, we'll consider performance.

If job descriptions are a figment of the imagination in small companies, performance appraisals are virtually non-existent. The two are very related as we will see in today's discussion. Who hates performance evaluations? Raise your hands..... We can see you!!!  But let me ask you a few questions:

Job Descriptions and Performance Appraisals - Who Needs 'Em?! (Part II) Print E-mail
Written by M. Alexandra Johnson, FACHE and Wilma N. Torres, CPC   
Sunday, 29 July 2012 00:00

This is part II of our four-part series on job descriptions and performance appraisals. Monday, we discussed the importance of job descriptions and how to craft them. Our discussion left off after an in-depth look at the essential functions or tasks for the position. Today, we'll look at the other requirements.

Work environment is key to conveying the conditions under which the employee will perform the work. For example, the phrase "demanding and fast-paced environment" gives the employee a good idea of what to expect. Clarifying physical demands is also paramount to preparing the candidate for the position. If an essential function of the position entails lifting large boxes, specify the weight.

Our experience has shown that sometimes smaller organizations don't follow established conventions in the human resources arena. One such item is the job description, and its cousin, the performance evaluation.  In this four-part series, we will explore the need for each and share tips to make your work easier, or at least less tedious.  Job descriptions are useful and critical for many reasons.  Keep in mind that employment is an unofficial contract.  You will exchange payment for the performance of certain functions.  After all, you wouldn't sign on with an insurance company if you didn't understand the coverage, right?  Similarly, employees need a good understanding of the position, their tasks and accountabilities; and you, as the employer, need to convey the expectations for which you will exchange a salary and benefits. In addition, as a manager, you need to know that all the critical functions in your department or business are covered and have the ability to measure whether they are being met to your satisfaction.
