Job and Position Names
Before you define your jobs and positions, decide whether you want to use simple names and codes, or multi-segment job and position names to hold more information.
The name can be a title only, as for example:
You can add another segment to categorize the jobs or positions. In this way, you can use segments to identify subgroups of employees within your enterprise. For example, a job name can comprise a title and a job type, such as:
- Director of Finance.Director
- Assistant Director of Finance.Director
Similarly, a position name can comprise a title, a position number, and an indicator showing whether the position is part-time. For example:
- Finance Officer.Professional
- Training Manager.020001.F/T
You define the segments of the job and position names and their valid values by setting up the Job Name key flexfield and the Position Name key flexfield. Normally your system administrator does this.
- Secretary to the Training Manager.020013.P/T
