Job description

The precise description of a job is also of fundamental importance in an increasingly dynamic competitive environment

Job descriptions form a basis for a systematic analysis and optimization of organizational structures and processes as well as for the application of modern HR instruments. They can be used, for instance, for redundancy and interface analyses. They can also serve as the basis for value-oriented concepts of leadership and remuneration. In the processes of recruitment and certification, they also contribute added value.
