Compensation Planning to be done only by few high level managers


I request your help with the following query in ECM:

As per my understanding, in ECM, the authority to do compensation planning for employees is with the chief of the org unit to which the employees belong. Incase the chief is not defined, then the chief of the org unit of the next superior org unit gets the authority to do planning.

Pls let me know if in standard offering, if only the chiefs of few top org units can do the planning for employees in subordinate org units. For example, I have an org strucute where there are 4 org units A, B, C & D. A is the top unit with B reporting to A, C reporting to B and D reporting to C.

All the org units have chiefs defined for them, so in this case is it possible for just the chief of Org unit 'A' to do the compensation planning for employees belonging in all the subordinate org units viz. B, C & D.

If the same is possible, also pls let me the approach for the same. Also let know of some cons that may exist for this approach.

Kindly refer attachment.

    Hi Konika,

    Yes, it is possible t do what you want. Your understanding of ECM is correct, it is set up so each manager can do the compensation recommendation for the individuals reporting to him or her. And that the top level managers can make recommendations for all organizations below in the structure.

    However, access can be controlled via security roles so only the top individuals could access ECM. Thus, giving only manager A access to make recommendations. If you want, Managers B, C and D could be given view access only or no access to view the process at all.

    Major con is Manager A will have to do all the work. Instead of only approving recommendations made by the other managers, Manager A will have to make entries for each individual - and if 4 levels above, will that top manager have the knowledge of the individuals to make the correct recommendations?

    You are paying Managers B, C and D to manage their people - why not let them make the pay adjustment recommendations also?
