Development of Job Descriptions

Job descriptions provide employers and employees with a documented collection of essential duties required for a particular job. Also included in job descriptions developed by CGS are the knowledge, skills, and abilities required for the job; minimum qualifications; and environmental conditions in which the job is performed. Data collected from job analyses can be used to develop and/or update formal job descriptions.  It is generally suggested that job descriptions be reviewed and updated at least every five years.
