Guidance Documents

Working Titles

Due to the broad range of jobs contained within Georgia Tech’s Job Classification and Compensation System (JCCS) and the standardized nature of staff titles, a department may wish to designate a working title for a position. A working title (also called a business title) is a descriptive designation reflecting the nature of the work being performed in a specific or similar position. Working titles should differentiate the work being performed in a position and, simultaneously, be consistent with similar positions performing the same work in other areas on campus.

This guidance document is currently being updated. 8/4/23
