Introduction to the HRMS Model

With Oracle HRMS you can define your own human resource model to reflect your own enterprise structures and policies. This information model lets you record the personal, work, and pay information for all the people you want to hold and process.

The model is both flexible and adaptable. It is flexible, so that you can reflect the needs of different companies, or different groups within the same company. It is adaptable, so that you can easily change the basic model as your enterprise changes.

See: Managing Change Over Time


In Oracle HRMS, you can hold information about current and former employees, applicants, external contacts such as contractors, and employee contacts such as relatives and dependents.

In addition to standard information such as addresses, nationality, interview records, qualifications, and absence information, you can define any other special information you need to hold for people. For example, you can define what information to hold on medical history, previous employment, or outside interests.

Work Structures

Work structures represent the different ways in which employees can work within your enterprise. They provide the framework for defining the work assignments of your employees. They also enable you to manage the information about your enterprise that is independent of your employees.

The work structures include your internal organizations (such as departments or divisions), payrolls, jobs or positions, grading structures, and any special employee groupings that you use in your enterprise.

Compensation and Benefits

In Oracle HRMS you can define your own types of compensation and benefits, and the business rules you want to apply to them. As you change policies, move people within your enterprise, and adjust their individual remuneration packages, the system maintains their compensation and benefit history.

For example, suppose you want to define a special type of payment and make this available only to employees who work at a particular location. In Oracle HRMS you use a compensation element to represent the payment. You define the business rule as a link between the element and the specific location. Then when you assign employees to the location, they automatically become eligible for the payment.

Grade Relationships to Compensation and Benefits

Salary Administration and Performance Reviews


In Oracle HRMS, the assignment describes employees' places within the enterprise: the organization for which they work, their role, grade, location, and so on. As you change the assignment information for an employee, you automatically build up his or her work history.

Your compensation eligibility rules link compensation and benefits to work structures, such as jobs or grades. The assignment places employees within the work structures of the enterprise. In this way, an employee's assignment determines his or her eligibility for compensation and benefits.

You can use assignments to identify major employee groups within the enterprise for management, for reporting and costing, and for compensation and benefit planning and administration.
