Use this form to define the general areas of responsibility within a company. Areas of responsibility are the work roles, processes, products, and actions a worker is responsible for in a job.

For example, a project manager's responsibilities might be managing client projects and development projects.

You can add areas of responsibility to jobs. A position, which is created for a job, inherits the areas of responsibility from the job. A worker assigned to a position will also inherit areas of responsibility from the position.


You cannot delete areas of responsibility that have been added to jobs.
