CURRENT HR NEWS

Team Flagstaff, welcome to the new (and hopefully) improved method for HR news updates.

 

How is it improved? 

  • No more getting buried in your email
  • Previously we were publishing just once per month;  this provided no opportunity for “breaking news”, and we struggled to make sure our content was always current when we published

What do you need to do?

  • Since you will no longer receive an email, visit the HR news page often for up-to-date information
  • Save this link to your favorites
  • Have a topic you would like for us to address?  Email us!

Class and Comp


NEW and IMPROVED Job Descriptions Webpage

With the implementation of NEOGOV we can now maintain job descriptions through the Class Specifications portion of the software.  Class specs are used in the creation of job postings and are referenced during an employee’s evaluation when they are asked whether or not their job description needs updating. The class spec includes class code (position control number) and title, salary values, FLSA status, EEO values and other pertinent information relating to the classification. A detailed set of job description fields are also maintained, including a summary of the job classification, detailed listing of job duties, minimum requirements and knowledge, skills and abilities required for the job classification. To access the new Class Specs page, you can use this link or if you go to the HR website and click on Job Descriptions, you will be automatically rerouted to the NEOGOV class specs page!  The terms Job Descriptions and Class Specs can be used interchangeably so if you wish to continue using the term Job Descriptions we understand.  Please note that some positions have what we refer to as a “working job description”. These were also added to the Class Specs page so every employee can view their current job description.  An example of this is Administrative Specialist – Airport and Administrative Specialist are both listed on the page so the Administrative Specialist for the Airport will use the “working job description” which is Administrative Specialist – Airport.
