Job titles: What’s in a name?
June 1, 2015
It’s an age-old question: do employees really care what their job title is? Does a higher level title provide the automatic perception of prestige? Are people motivated by a promotional title? Or was Shakespeare’s Juliet correct when she said “…a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”? In other words, is what matters what something is or does and not what it’s called?
What is in a job title? As you may have gathered, it depends who you ask.
