Employee Central Position Management makes it easy for you to do a number of things:

  • Create and maintain positions online with appropriate controls.
  • Store and track position category (regular, part-time, intern, and so on), current incumbents and previous employees in that position.
  • Configure headcount management to suit your needs (strict position control vs. non-budget-driven process)
  • For to-be-hired positions, you can open requisitions in Recruitment, with the required position information.
  • Integrate Succession Management with Employee Central positions so that the successors are planned based on the existing positions hierarchy.
  • Integrate with SAP Fieldglass to create job postings for contingent workers.
