- Reorganization/Reclassification Posting
The standard practice is to post an open position. However, there are circumstances in which management may decide that a reclassification or appointment of a person into the role is more appropriate. The information below is a list of guidelines to help Unit management, HR Professionals, and GTHR to determine the best action in a particular situation.
- Working Titles
Due to the broad range of jobs contained within Georgia Tech’s Job Classification and Compensation System (JCCS) and the standardized nature of staff titles, a department may wish to designate a working title for a position. A working title (also called a business title) is a descriptive designation reflecting the nature of the work being performed in a specific or similar position. Working titles should differentiate the work being performed in a position and, simultaneously, be consistent with similar positions performing the same work in other areas on campus.
