Job Descriptions Management System

Overview

Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF) is a Christian organization that provides aviation, communications, and learning technology services to more than 1,000 Christian and humanitarian agencies. This also includes thousands of isolated missionaries and indigenous villagers in the world’s most remote areas. With such an expansive outreach comes tremendous responsibility and requires that MAF’s employees are not only able to complete the jobs necessary to help the people they serve, but that they also have access to tools that enable them to work to the best of their ability.

The Problem

Before turning to JDXpert and its Job Description Management Software, MAF used SharePoint to store and archive historical versions of Word and PDF job descriptions and even turned to Adobe forms for a short while. They were able to manage their job descriptions quite well considering the technology limitations but were looking for a solution that could help them attain a more structured and configurable approach to job description management.

Company Bio

Mission Aviation Fellowship is a Christian organization that provides aviation, communications, and learning technology services to more than 1,000 Christian and humanitarian agencies, as well as thousands of isolated missionaries and indigenous villagers in the world’s most remote areas.

The Solution

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.

Success

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.

From the Client

“We are so glad we went with JDXpert! For the first time in 75 years, our organization is completely up-to-date with our job descriptions! And it only took a few months! This would have never been possible using our previous system. Thank you!”
