Hybrid Enterprise Structures

Many enterprises combine different types of structure for different groups of employees. Typical of these hybrid types are large manufacturing or corporate enterprises where management and administrative roles are fixed into specific organizations, but other roles are managed in a more flexible manner.

In Oracle HRMS you would set up this type of hybrid enterprise using positions for some groups of employees, and organization and jobs for others. For example, in one factory organization you might define a position for the Production Manager, and one job for all production line workers.

Employee Assignments

In this type of enterprise most of your workers would be assigned to an organization and a job. However you would define management positions because they have the characteristics of fixed roles within specific organizations, including the idea of automatic vacancy on termination of the assignment. In each organization you would have only one position. This would be the manager, and by default, any other employee who works in the organization would report to the manager.

Other Management Issues

Other issues for managing groups of employees by position, or by organization and job are the same as for the previous examples.


Project Based Enterprises

Rule Based Enterprises

Remuneration Policy Employees working in unionized jobs participate in negotiated rates of pay and conditions. You would define grade rates or progression points to deal with negotiated pay rates for workers in jobs.
Salary Administration Employees in management positions are more likely to have their salary administered personally and be reviewed on their performance. You define grade rates and salary bases to deal with salary administration for employees in positions.
