Position Descriptions

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.
