The JD of an Accounts Executive in my company is:

1) Maintenance and accounting of Petty cash on day-to-day basis.

2) Maintenance of bankbook and Bank Reconciliation on monthly basis.

3) Accounting of Expenses on day to basis as and when occurred.

4) Negotiating with suppliers in respect of all financial transactions regarding rates and payment terms.

5) Preparation of Invoices as per the agreements and follow-ups with customers regarding the outstanding receivable from them.

6) Management of Sundry Debtors and Sundry Creditors with Ageing Analysis.

7) Payments pertaining to Salaries, Payroll, other center expenses, payments to suppliers etc as per due dates assigned or as per agreed terms.

8) Maintenance and recording of entire income and expenses in “TALLY” accounting software on day-to-day basis.

9) Preparation of MIS reports as per required format of the management on monthly basis.

How do I make KRAs for this?

Pls help. Its urgent.

Hi Vrishi, can u provide me the JD for HR officer and KRA’s & KPI’s for his position and any other HR Positions if u have Thanx
Hi sunitha Can u tell me the level and the responsibilities attached to that position Regards
Hi Vasudha
A KRA is the key result a person is supposed to achieve in a time frame & with a measurable target. A KRA should have a performance indicator which will the measuring / tracking criteria. A KRA should be SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achieavable, Reviewable & Timebound).
Where as JDs are your job responsibilities which will help you to directly / indirectly achieve your KRA.
If the KRA of a HR personnel is to maintain attrition rate at 3% for the year 2006-07. He might have many things to do to achieve this which will his JD.
Hope your point is clarified.

Key Result Areas [ KRAs ]

=======================================

KEY PERFORMANCE AREAS

These are the areas within the business , where an

individual or group, is logically responsible / accountable

for the results.

KRAs [ KEY RESULT AREAS are managed by

-KPAs [ KEY PERFORMANCE AREAS]

-KPIs [KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS]

To manage each KRA, KPIs are set .

KRA and hence KPI is attributed to the person who

can have effect on the business results and is

self measured where applicable.

=================================================

Key Result Areas [ KRAs ]

"Key Result Areas" or KRAs refer to general areas of outcomes or outputs for which a role is responsible. A typical role targets three to five KRAs.

Value of KRAs

Identifying KRAs helps individuals: · Clarify their roles · Align their roles to the organisation's business or strategic plan · Focus on results rather than activities · Communicate their role's purposes to others · Set goals and objectives · Prioritize their activities, and therefore improve their time/work management · Make value-added decisions

Description

Key result areas (KRAs) capture about 80% of a work role. The remainder of the role is usually devoted to areas of shared responsibility (e.g., helping team members, participating in activities for the good of the organisation).

================================================== ===========

I am going to use HR DEPARTMENT as an example.

CORE KRAs for HR

-RECRUITMENT/ SELECTION

-WORKFORCE PLANNING/ DIVERSITY

-PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENTA

-REWARD MANAGEMENT

-WORKPLACE MANAGEMENT AND RELATIONS

-SAFETY AND HEALTH WORKPLACE

-BUILDING CAPABILITIES AND ORGANIZATION LEARNING

-EFFECTIVE HR MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS , SUPPORT AND MONITORING

THE IMPORTANCE AND WEIGHTAGE OF THESE ELEMENTS IS

-GUIDED BY THE

*VISION STATEMENT

*MISSION STATEMENT

*CORPORATE OBJECTIVES

*CORPORATE STRATEGY

*CORPORATE BUSINESS UNITS/ DEPARTMENTAL PLANS/STRATEGY.

AND COULD CHANGE YEAR BY YEAR AS PER THE BOARD DIRECTIVES.

THIS WOULD BE REFLECTED IN THE

-KPAs --KEY PERFORMANCE AREAS

-KPIs -- KEY PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

===============================================

KRAs, KPAs and KPI [shown in brackets ] for HR.

KRA 1 -RECRUITMENT/ SELECTION

KPA 1- RECRUITMENT [KPI= average time taken per employee 2 months]

KPA 2 -SELECTION [ KPI = average cost per new employee RS 10,000]

====================================

KRA 2 - WORKFORCE PLANNING/ DIVERSITY

KPA 1 - ANSENTEEISM [ KPI = absent rate at 5%]

KPA 2- TURNOVER [ KPI = turnover rate at 7%]

=====================================

KRA 3- PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT

KPA 1 - PERFORMANCE APPRAISALS [KPI = all staff to be appraised at least once annually]

KPA 2 -SUCCESSION PLANNING [ KPI = 8 POTENTAL staff to be identified and talent managed]

========================================

============================================

KRA 8 - EFFECTIVE HR MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS , SUPPORT AND MONITORING

KPA 1- HRIS [ KPI = finalize the software . RS 1.2 million capital budget]

================================================== =====

HERE above I have shown the contents of HR, along with the

attached format [ excel format ].



In a very similar way, you can develop for other departments

like

-manufacturing

-marketing

-sales

-R&D

-finance

etc etc.

================================================

THIS IS AN EXAMPLE FOR INDIVIDUALS.

AGAIN I AM USING HR DEPARTMENT.



FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH HR DEPARTMENT,

-you should take the job description of the individual

-determine the KRAs for the year

-identify the KPAs for the year [ which could change yearly]

-determine the KPI for each KPA, which depends on the company annual

objectives.



HERE IS THE EXAMPLE for a recruitment officer

KRA 1

-RECRUITMENT/ SELECTION



KPA 1 --RECRUITMENT

KPI ----reduce average time taken to fill vacancies by 15%

KPI ----reduce average cost per recruit by 10%

================================================

FOR OTHER DEPARTMENTS, YOU SHOULD REVIEW

Typical key result areas at the corporate and some functional levels.

JUST LIKE HR DEPARTMENT'S KRAs AND KPIs,

A COMPANY CAN DEVELOP KRA AND KPI

FOR OTHER FUNCTIONAL DEPARTMENTS.

SOME EXAMPLES

1. CORPORATION AS A WHOLE

-corporate objective / actual results

-sales growth %

-gross profit % of sales

-market share growth %

-return on assets

-return on investment

-corporate image index improvement

etc etc

===================================



2.MANUFACTURING

- Unit volume level

- unit cost target

-production efficiency improvement

-productivity improvement

-quality improvement index

-capacity utilization

etc etc

====================================

MARKETING

-market share %

-new product launches success

-profit contribution by productlines

etc etc

=====================================

SALES

-sales against last year

-sales against target

-sales coverage improvement

etc etc

======================================

DISTRIBUTION

-market coverage

-customer coverage

-channel coverage

=======================================

CUSTOMER SERVICE

-CUSTOMER SERVICE IMPROVEMENT

-CUSTOMER SATISFACTION ACHIEVEMENT

ETC ETC

======================================

WAREHOUSING / TRANSPORTATION

-%ACHIEVED AGAINST ORDERS

-PICKING / PACKING RATE

-FINISHED GOODS INVENTORY LEVEL

-STOCK TURNOVER

-====================================

FINANCE

-Cost of Capital USED

- Receivables leveL / against sales

-Bad-debt level

-

Debt-equity ratio

=====================================

etc etc

===============================
