Employee Central Components

The course consists of these critical concepts and the tools that will allow you to configure it:

  • Foundation Objects – One of the core functions of Employee Central as an HR Information System is to store company information. Foundation Objects allow companies to store organization, pay, and job-related information. Employee Central comes with standard Foundations Objects.

  • HR Data – Another core HRIS component is storing employee information. The standard Employee Central data model includes person and employment data structure to store HR data. The pre-defined date-effective objects ensure that history and changes to employee records are captured.

  • Role-Based Permissions –Employee Central uses role-based permission as its security model. Employees, managers, and HRs can initiate transactions based on granted permissions.

  • Workflows, Event Reasons, and Business Rules – Managing transactions are made more efficient when business rules are used to automate approval and event reasons.
