Janco’s IT job descriptions are constantly being updated to meet the latest technology and compliance requirements. The update service is a way that CIOs and HR Managers can see they have the tools they need to meet their ever changing requirements.

Janco Associates has just completed its 25th annual update of its Internet and Information Technology Position Description HandiGuide™. This is part of Janco’s continuing effort to create a set of standard ‘Best Practices’ processes and documentation that CIOs can use to better manage the technology function in their enterprises. Janco is now offering a customized service along with its standard products. This offering includes:

The CEO of Janco, Victor Janulaitis said, “We published the first version of this HandiGuide™ in 1989 with only 98 job descriptions. As technology has advanced we have added over 165 job titles and continually updated them to meet the ever changing technology landscape. Most recently we add position descriptions for the Chief Mobility Officer to deal with the advance of mobile computing; Manager Vendor Management as more services are contracted for on the outside; and KPI Analyst to address the needs of showing the value of technology in business terms.”

The document is distributed in electronic format – both PDF and editable MS WORD. Included within the HandiGuide are tools to help expand, evaluate and define an enterprise’s unique IT Human Resource requirements. Those tools include:

  • Security – Employee Termination Checklist (Electronic Form)
