Tip of the Week: Defining Roles
What’s in a name? This week’s tip digs into leadership roles and titles, and how some of your colleagues are defining these roles.
Manager, Coordinator, Director, Supervisor…. Definitions for these titles vary from organization to organization. Does your agency have clear definitions for each? Establishing consistency across these titles, and deciding what they mean at your agency, is an important step in insuring more equitable and just compensation practices.
Michelle Thevenin, Chief People Officer at Humane Rescue Alliance, recently shared a document in the Members-Only online community that featured definitions for various titles associated with team leads and individual rules, all the way from Supervisor to Specialist. Peruse HRA’s list for inspo, and feel free to leave a comment and add your own definitions.
