That's Not My Job!

"That's not my job."  Have you ever heard someone say that?  The reality though, is if employers provide a thorough job description to each of their employees then it eliminates the surprise or frustration created by unclear expectations between the employee and their supervisor.  Job descriptions are essential tools in hiring, evaluating, and even terminating employees.  A well-written job description will provide a clearly communicated understanding to all parties of the job duties and skills needed to be successful.
