(Optional) You may also add in the following columns for promotion in Design Worksheet:

  • Final Job Code
  • Final Job Role
  • Final Pay Grade
  • Final Job Family

More information on each of these is in Implementing and Managing Compensation - Columns you can add to the Salary tab of the Compensation Worksheet

  1. Follow the steps in Implementing and Managing Compensation - Adding and Deleting Standard Columns in the Compensation Plan Template
  2. When these columns are added, set them as Read Only and Reloadable. If this is not done, you will receive an error message.
  3. Map these to the same EC fields as their counter parts and select the EC Promotion category
    • Note: Depending on implementation, Job Family, Job role and Job Code EC fields may vary

Note: If Field-Based Permissions (FBP) are enabled for the template, ensure users who will promote employees have the edit permission for ALL the final columns.

The columns below are all columns available for EC Promotion. If required, using payGrade and finalpayGrade would be sufficient.
