What does a quality job look like? The below graphic offers an array of components that can be used to create a dynamic definition. It is more of a menu
than a mandate. Every element may not be relevant to every job, business or its workforce.
It is vital for employers to understand what comprises each element of this chart. This page will provide definitions and resources for each element of the chart below. We have divided the elements that go into designing a good job into three categories, Foundational, Support, and Opportunity. Each of these categories, and the elements within, are important to understand when designing good jobs. With this information at hand, employers can choose which elements best fit their needs and the needs of their workforce. Click here to download a PDF of this graphic.
