Job Descriptions – Performance Evaluations
It is difficult for employees to perform satisfactorily without a clear definition of their duties. It is, therefore, essential that each employee have a job description outlining specific duties. This will avoid problems that arise when it is felt that “someone else was supposed to do it.”
Jersey Professional Management’s “Job Description Study” will assure your community that each employee will know his assignments … not only on a regular basis, but in the absence of one or more of their fellow employees.
The importance of performance evaluations for municipal employees is often overlooked or under estimated. When creatively used, these can serve as an important tool in promoting efficiency, performance and productivity.
A comprehensive evaluation can be used as a basis for salary review; to determine whether training needs are required for individual employees or an entire staff; and as a means of motivating members of the work force. It can help fit an employee to the job, and the job to the employee.
When an evaluation is planned in cooperation with employees, the governing body and administration can learn what employees want from their jobs. This, in turn, improves morale, helps to develop growth potential, and assists the employee in finding meaningful work.
Jersey Professional Management’s experience in this field will achieve a successful evaluation without negative undertones, and assures the participation and cooperation of both employees and the governing body.
