Airtight Writing: Protect Your Workplace and Your Employees with Better Job Descriptions


A well-written job description is important long after you take down the employment ad. Job descriptions provide employees, managers, and HR professionals with a realistic picture of job duties  and performance guidelines. This session will demonstrate the importance of writing clear and accurate job descriptions, especially when a request for accommodation is made. The presenters will also briefly discuss the current challenge of interviewing a candidate using a virtual platform and how it differs from the traditional in-person meeting.
