The working titles for the Job and Organizational Design (JOD) team will be changed from, Job and Organizational Design (JOD) Consultant/Advisor to Job Design and Evaluation (JDE) Consultant/Advisor, effective immediately. The new working title more closely aligns with our work and the core needs of the client.
The Compensation, Talent Acquisition and Workforce Planning unit in Human Resource Services has formally transitioned the review of support staff postings within the Recruitment and Advertising Database (RAD) to the Job Design and Evaluation (JDE) Advisors. This is another step toward aligning job evaluation and recruitment services in a way that creates efficiencies, improves service delivery, and better addresses client needs. The intent is to continue to build strong relationships with clients, and leverage the job knowledge obtained through the job evaluation process to expedite job posting review.
