Using Strength and Skills of the Worker in Defining Job and Work Load

By Rose A. Cohn

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), March 1959

The author explores ways in which social services organizations define social worker responsibilities, and what assumptions of a proper workload are used to assign duties. These assumptions ought to be reevaluated, the author suggests, in order to make the best use of each worker's strengths. She contends that job definition need not be fixed prior to hiring, nor need each worker have identical responsibilities; rather, the agency should focus on its overall goals and allow for flexibility of job requirements in order to form the best way for the team to meet those goals over time. In Journal of Jewish Communal Service, ed. By Sanford Sherman, v.35, no.3, March 1959, p.278-284.
