Training held on writing job profiles to aid career path process of local staff
Ninety-five IRRI HQ-based staff from a range of disciplines and job levels attended 4 half-day sessions of Writing Job Profiles, a training workshop held on 15 and 16 August 2012.
The training was jointly facilitated by IRRI's Human Resource Services and Towers Watson, a leading global professional services company. In the coming weeks, several country office-based staff will receive the same training.
Participants of this training will play an important role in the creation of standard job profiles, which is the first step in the development of career paths for nationally recruited staff. From the workshop, they learned to create a standard job profile through job analysis, discussed best practice in job profile development, and practiced creating job profiles using the new standard template for the purpose.
Participants will attend a follow-up session where they will get help developing the skills necessary to facilitate a series of focus group discussions, when many hundreds of IRRI staff will collaborate to draft a set of standard job profiles for the Institute.
Inquiries on the development of career paths for nationally recruited staff can be made by email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or by contacting Sara at HQ ext. 2824 or Jhea on HQ ext. 2775.
