Use this sample and step by step explanation for setting meaningful and inspiring employee performance goals for a board operator.

A Board Operator is responsible for operating sound boards and transmitting equipment. Most board operators work for the radio or film industry primarily using a mixing board device that accepts the audio inputs allowing the operator to adjust volume levels and add effects on the fly as well as outputting the results as high-quality audio suitable for radio broadcast.

The duties of this position vary depending on the size of the radio station. The primary ones include setting up and troubleshooting mixing boards, microphones, electronics and mechanical components used, creating computer software used for editing and broadcasting audio, equalizing the volume of the microphone channels to provide a level of consistent audio broadcast, adding effects to the sound like reverb making the voice sound bigger and airier.
