Do your job titles reflect and explain the work your staff does?

As a reaction to ongoing cost and headcount pressures from senior management, one of our clients asked us to assess titles within the Corporate Secretary’s function. Many law departments may find, like this one did, that titles, adopted long ago for various historical or political reasons, no longer serve. The responsibilities have changed or clients need to understand better from a title what people do.

It would be a good idea to review your titles and to take a closer look at designated roles and responsibilities relative to actual tasks performed, and, by clarifying titles, gain greater distinction and transparency in members’ contributions to the company.
