Each employees individual Job description and Employee Development Plan form cornerstones in building a competent and motivated workforce.
A business will only succeed when all members understand their precise contribution, that of their colleagues and the end result for the customer.
Distilling current job responsibility, skills and performance measurement criteria into a clear Job Description is an essential element to people management, retention and a coordinated workforce.
Once Job Descriptions are completed, longer term, valued employees can be retained when management takes time to understand and agree on the individuals realistic career aspirations in the medium and long term. This is accomplished using an employee development plan.
The employee development plan creates this mutual understanding, cements employee loyalty and assists the manager in providing skills development and experience designed to make the employee a great candidate for their next promotion.
