Kenexa Introduces Job Description Builder

April 26, 2011 ( – Kenexa has introduced the latest addition to its CompAnalyst compensation software, Job Description Builder.

A press release said Job Description Builder gives employers a streamlined approach to the creation, storage and maintenance of job descriptions. For companies without existing job descriptions — or for those looking for a point of reference for key roles — the solution also provides high-level descriptions, including functional competencies, for more than 4,000 benchmark jobs.  

“Many organizations do not have a central place to store and manage job descriptions and have poorly defined systems for keeping them updated, which leads to job descriptions that are outdated, inaccurate and inconsistent. These inefficiencies can negatively affect quality of hire, accuracy of compensation benchmarking, and exposure to liability. The CompAnalyst Job Description Builder provides the solution to meet those needs,” stated Zahir Ladhani, Kenexa’s president, Compensation, in the announcement.  

Hosted by Kenexa, Job Description Builder centralizes job description storage so job descriptions are accessible any time, from anywhere in the world. The newest CompAnalyst module gives customers the flexibility to build customized templates that reflect the unique structure and content of each organization’s job descriptions. The solution also maintains a complete history of changes to each job description and allows for the export of job descriptions to print-ready PDF or Word formats.   

In addition to the functionality provided by Job Description Builder, Kenexa’s CompAnalyst modules provide compensation data, market pricing tools, analytics software and other resources to help companies create successful compensation programs.  

Job Description Builder is available immediately to new and existing Kenexa customers.
