Defining the Compensation Plan Rollout

Siebel Compensation Planning allows organizations to select the management levels within the organizational hierarchy that participate in the compensation planning process. The term plan rollout refers to the determination and control over which managers participate in the planning process. A compensation plan is automatically created for each manager who participates in the planning process. For more information, see Defining Compensation Planning Cycles.

Participation in the compensation planning process is defined using Administration - Group > Positions. First, positions are identified as business unit leaders. Then, the number of levels below the business unit leaders that participate in the planning process is specified.

Figure 9 shows an identified business unit with levels. In this example, if John's position (Level 1) is selected as a business unit leader with one level below, then Mark, Jane, and Chris (Level 2) would also have compensation plans created for them. Employees in Level 3 and Level 4 are automatically rolled up into Level 2 compensation plans during the plan creation process.

This task is a step in Process of Setting Up Compensation Planning.
