Learn the principles of job design—a core responsibility for HR coordinators, managers, and specialists—and help employees be more satisfied and engaged with their work.
- Employees and the work they deliver are the single most important asset in your organization. Without them, your organization has no product or service to deliver to your clients. But you can't expect employees to come on board and be successful without some direction. In fact, ambiguity kills innovation, happiness and teamwork. We work best when we know what's expected of us.
