The under-appreciated power of job descriptions
In this #AvoidingHiringMistakes podcast series, Raizcorp CEO Allon Raiz discusses the evolution of his relationship with the formal job description and why it is such an important tool for the scaling entrepreneur. To illustrate, he takes listeners through the process that Raizcorp uses when creating a new job description or revisiting an old one. His view is that descriptions must be as full and comprehensive as possible, and include qualifications, characteristics and skills. Creating this type of job description not only helps the entrepreneur to think through exactly what type of role is needed, it also informs the training of the employee.
