Position Descriptions, PDs, play a critical role in the Human Resources process. Without
a PD we can’t classify a position and can’t recruit for a vacancy. A PD describes
the essential functions of a position, how much time is spent doing those functions,
and the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to do the work. The PD is used to
build a job posting when a position is vacant and may be used to determine whether
or not a work accommodation can be made, should such a need arise. Your Workforce
Planning Analyst can help you develop a PD and will work with you to ensure the work
is described accurately.
