Reassessmentof job satisfaction: Sue Pearson(PR Dept.)


This report sets out to use Workset colours to assess the accuracy of myjob description as PR officer and to suggest a number of changes.

It is clear that there is a difference between the way the company viewsthe job and the reality as I perceive it. Firstly, a number of areas whichdemand a significant proportion of my time are not mentioned in the officialjob brief. The segment on the pie chart which provides most cause for concernis the pink sector; this relates to my attendance at a number of meetings whichI can contribute little. Another significant area is the grey segment; thisrefers to the unscheduled time I spend sorting out computer problems. I feelthese activities are hampering my core work. As can be seen from the piecharts, the time I spend actively working to meet the goals agreed with my linemanager is less than envisaged.
The above discrepancies clearly indicate that my current job brief isinaccurate.
I would recommend that my official job brief should be updated using theWorkset colours. It would also be valuable to consider the proportion ofnon-core colours in the pie chart and to investigate whether work in theseareas could be carried out by someone else more suited to these tasks.
