  • Evaluating duties and responsibilities of individual positions and occupational classes to ensure that positions are correctly assigned to an appropriate grade level within the organization
  • Conducting market salary surveys and analyses to ensure that College pay levels are competitive with the external job market
  • Conducting studies of positions and job classes on a regular maintenance schedule or in response to reorganization, reallocation of resources, major changes in work responsibilities or technology, or in response to unique or unanticipated circumstances

Employees are responsible for reviewing and updating the position description for their assigned position with their supervisor, preferably on an annual basis in conjunction with the performance review cycle. The supervisor may update the description for vacant positions. Changes in the work should be reflected in the position description document located in the Job Wizard. The position description forms the foundation for a number of human resource functions including recruitment or talent acquisition, performance management, and succession planning. Guidance documents for completing the position description and accessing the Job Wizard are provided below, as well as a link to the Job Wizard.
