Question Title Job Description
RECRUITMENT AND SELECTION
GDB # 1
The origin of the concept of job description can be traced from the era of industrialization. The bureaucratic organizational structures emphasize on the importance of work specialization and well defined roles and responsibilities. Therefore, job description becomes necessary to make sure that employees understand the boundaries of their responsibilities and performance standards. But the transformative changes from industrial era to knowledge economy have provoked employers to evolve out of the traditional schemas of command and control management. Consequently, some employers avoid providing a written copy of the job description to the new employees because they believe it locks them into a fixed set of job duties that eventually effect creativity and agility.
