Job

Definition

Organizational object (object key C) used to create positions in an organizational plan.

Positions are concrete and can are held by persons in an enterprise (secretary in the marketing department, for example). Jobs, in contrast, are classifications of functions in an enterprise (secretary, for example), which are defined by the assignment of tasks and characteristics. Jobs serve as job descriptions, that apply to several positions with similar tasks or characteristics.

Use

When you create jobs, they are listed in a job index.

When you create a new position (secretary in the marketing department, for example), you can relate it to a job that already exists in your job index (secretary, for example). The position then automatically inherits the tasks and characteristics of the job.

If there is no corresponding job, add one to your job index and assign it tasks and characteristics. This will then be available when you add new positions.

This relationship will make it easier for you to create positions that are similar or the same, as you will not have to assign tasks and characteristics to each individual position. You can also assign additional tasks and characteristics directly to positions.

You have 20 secretaries in your enterprise. Each one holds a position (secretary in the marketing department, for example). This position is described by the job secretary and the tasks and characteristics that belong to it. In addition to this, each position (secretary in the marketing department, for example) can be assigned specific tasks and characteristics, which differentiate it from other positions (secretary in the personnel department, for example).

Jobs can also provide a valuable point of reference for developing qualifications, if you plan to install the Personnel Development component of HR.

&Integration&

A job can be related, amongst other things, to:

·        a position via relationship A/B 007 (describes / is described by)

·        tasks via relationship A/B 007 (describes / is described by)

·        a holder of a position via relationship A/B 017 (is performed by / performs)

You can then assign a position holder directly to a job, if a different job applies to him or her than the one which his or her position is assigned to.

·        Another job via relationship A/B 041 (is the same as)
