In Oracle HRMS, you set up each physical site where your employees work as a separate location. Similarly, you enter the addresses of external organizations that you want to maintain in your system, such as employment agencies, tax authorities, and insurance or benefits carriers. When setting up internal or external organizations, you pick from a list of these locations.
This approach has these advantages:
- You enter information about each location only once, thereby saving data entry time.
- Central maintenance of locations ensures consistency of address standards.
- Your work sites exist as separate structures identifiable for reporting purposes, and for use in the rules that determine employee eligibility for various types of compensation and benefits.
