Function of job titles

What exactly is a title and what is it for? The title is a Addition to the name of a person to understand. This may, for example, have been awarded as a sign of veneration. Until the First World War, this was often recognizable by the titles of nobility.

Nowadays titles play a smaller role in Germany - in the academic field it is more of academic degrees like Bachelor, Master or Doctor the speech. Only the professor is an academic title.

Job titles are used to inform others about a person's position, professional or academic qualifications. In the course of time there are always new jobs and so too new job titles originated. The large number of modern job titles is due to two different circumstances, internationalization and specialization.

More and more is differentiated. The sheer mass of creative job titles, however, leads to always more confusion. This has to do with the use of English terms. In contrast to German, English has the advantage - depending on how you look at it - that terms can often be used ambiguously.

However, for very few in this country English is their mother tongue. So misunderstandings are inevitable. Why do people still like to adorn themselves with English job titles? Because that's exactly what they are: jewelry. Non-insiders in particular can get through quickly pompous-sounding job titles dazzle.

Legitimizing one's own position

The motivation through job titles can of course only be up to one certain point function. If a company had an above-average proportion of employees with a thirst for recognition, it would be difficult.

The problem isn't just a penchant for self-expression for some. Companies reward the with a new job title professional development of your employee.

In a way, everyone is a specialist in their field, but not every activity can be associated with excellent conditions. Especially since the trend has been in the opposite direction for years: companies tend to break down hierarchies.

However, if you wanted to equip everyone with great job titles, fantastic powers and a fat company car, you would quickly reach your limits, not just financially. Either would go back for minimal distinction more hierarchies created or all of a sudden they would all be on the same hierarchical level.
