Managing positions is one of the most critical functions of a supervisor. It sets the base level for understanding regarding what an employee is expected to accomplish and sets the parameters for appropriate compensation.
All position descriptions should be reviewed annually, preferably at the time of the employee’s performance evaluation. If the position description is up to date, indicate this on the evaluation form. If it is not, submit a revised position description with the evaluation so that Human Resources can maintain the proper documentation.
At a minimum, a new position description must be provided (with the employee’s and supervisor’s signature) every three years.
When submitting position descriptions to Human Resources include both an electronic copy as well as a paper copy.
