Prompted to look for an alternative solution to Adobe because of a signature locking issue, MAF started their search by investigating various form editors. However, as they dug deeper, they realized that a Job Description Management System would be more beneficial to their managers when creating job descriptions. Managers are not job description experts, so making these tools available to them seemed liked a “no-brainer.” After altering their research approach, they identified the ability to create workflows, design templates, access historical versions, configurability, and affordability as top priorities. Mission Aviation Fellowship then contacted JDXpert and determined that the tool would not only meet the needs and wants of the organization, but their experience and implementation process seemed in-line with other successful software implementations they had encountered in the past. The entire organization from HR to managers to employees embraced the new system, as it allowed them to easily update and maintain job descriptions. Having up-to-date and accurate job descriptions allowed them to follow FLSA regulations and verify that all jobs were categorized correctly.
Since implementing JDXpert, Mission Aviation Fellowship has reached a job description completion rate of 100%, a first in their 75-year history! This success has led them to consider other uses for JDXpert such as the integration of competencies with those they identify on the performance feedback process currently in development.
