Organization Management is a very powerful application that allows the user to define the structure of their organization in multiple user-defined ways. Interact HRMS is an enterprise system which supports any number of employers (which can be deployed in one single database or with a separate database for each employer. Within each employer, a powerful organization structure can be defined and an organization chart will be produced as a result of the data loaded whereby each Organization Unit is shown in relation to other Organization Units in the organization. The application allows the user to define an unlimited number of Organization Units, an unlimited number of reporting relationships, and an unlimited number of reporting levels. Organization Units can be classified in Groups, Work Unit Types, Work Units or other types of Classifications including as company, branch, division, department, section, project, activity or as any another type of classification.
The organization structure is important for reporting purposes so that reports can be run per unit or per group of units, it is also important for costing purposes where the application is used for payroll also and payroll cost needs to be distributed by cost center, project or activity. In addition, the organization structure is used as a foundation module to ensure reporting lines are clear and all workflow approval processes function as per the defined reporting lines. Most reports in Interact HRMS allow the user to filter by Organization Unit.
Reporting among organization units can be defined based on an administrative, a functional and a technical reporting line, or a user defined type of reporting line. Each reporting relationship will have a start and end date and can have a manager with a scope of authority defined with it.
Organization units can be controlled by a position budget or open for hiring based on standard requisition and approval processes. Each unit also has Self Service capabilities described further under Organization Unit Self Service.
Each organization unit will also have performance goals and strategic goals associated with it which can then be used for performance management and KPI management.
