Description

Having clear and concise job descriptions in place is vital for employee success on the farm. Appropriate job descriptions communicate the image of a well-managed business and can be useful in a very competitive labor market.

Job descriptions are an essential part of the employee-recruitment process, helping dairy farms communicate the image of a well-managed and organized business to a very competitive labor market. Now creating appropriate job descriptions has been made easier than ever with the Job Description Generator, an online tool newly updated by the Penn State Extension Dairy Team from its original 2006 version.

Dairy managers and owners can access the free, easy to understand online program.

Well-constructed job descriptions show that management is aware of specific labor needs and the qualifications and skills that a successful candidate will possess. Job descriptions spell out the specific duties that are required of employees and help candidates to decide if the job will be a good fit for them.

The newly released job description generator takes the dairy manager through a five step process using a customizable tool to create a professional and easy to read job description. Job descriptions do not need to be lengthy, but this tool simplifies the process and insures all key points are covered. These can be used to post a new job opening or to update a current position.

Job descriptions should never be considered final; they should be open to changes and should be reviewed at least once a year by both employee and supervisor. Updating job description or starting a new position with one can help employees and supervisors reach a mutual understanding about important details of a job in order to avoid problems or misunderstandings.

Access the tool for free.
