HR meaning ‘Human Resources’ are the people within a business responsible for performing tasks assigned to them for the purpose of achieving the objectives of the organisation. This includes things like recruitment selection, training, skill developments, assessment, appraisal and safety and health concerns of employees.
Before you hire anyone, you need to know exactly what they are going to do. What are you looking for? Do you really need to hire someone to do this? What skills do they need to have?
You may find it easier to speak with some of your current employees about the roles that are needed to fill. This way you can develop a job description that will help you determine the perfect candidate, the rate of pay, and have a basic standard for the employee to go by.
All job descriptions are summaries of what the purpose is and how you want them to do the job. It simply offers employees an idea of what the employer wants from them. Be sure to include the job title, the objective, the level of the job along with a brief summary, the list of duties and the relationship it has to the business.
