Adding Jobs

You can add jobs and set their properties if the application is based on the Job granularity option.

To add jobs:

  1. Click Compensation Planning, and then Manage Jobs.
  2. Specify the POV.
  3. Click the Actions gear, and then select Add Job.
  4. On Job Details:
    • In Job, click the Member Selector, and then select the position.
    • Enter the full-time equivalent in FTE.
    • Enter the number of Regular, Contractor, and Temporary headcount for the job.
    • Click Next.
  5. On Calendar Information, select the Start Year and Start Month for the job, and then click Next.
  6. On Pay Type, Skill Set, and Salary Options, select these options:
    • Pay Type—for example, Exempt or Non-exempt
    • Skill Set—for example, Java or Management
    • Salary Options:
      • Salary Defaults: Select to set the salary based on the salary defaults, and then click Launch.

        Salary defaults are set on the Defaults tab of Compensation Planning.

      • Salary Basis and Rate: Select this option, and then click Next to directly enter the Salary Rate (for example, 6000) and select the Salary Basis (for example, Monthly). Then click Launch.
      • Salary Grade: Select to set the salary by selecting a salary grade, and then click Next to select the grade. Then click Launch.

        Selecting Salary Grade bypasses the default assignments and instead uses the Salary Grade Basis and Rates at the specific level 0 Entity member or the Company Assumptions Entity member. Salary grades are set on the Assumptions tab of Compensation Planning.

A message confirms that you successfully added the job. The expenses for the job are calculated starting from the start month and year you specified.


Because jobs are members in the Job dimension, you can't remove a job through the Workforce interface. Instead, the administrator can delete the job member using the Dimension Editor. Alternately, you could repurpose an existing job.
