Should emoployee subgroup be coutnry specific....?

Hi folks,

We are going with global HR implementation and having problems in configuring employee subgroups globally.

My first question is does employee subgroups must be country specific? If not how can we manage groupings for various countries for both time management and payroll.

Well SAP best practices suggests to go with country specific employee subgroups, and it seems that its almost impossible to have one employee subgroup to be used in various countries if you have TM and payroll (since u need ESG groupings for a lot of things).

If any one solved or faced such country specific issue for employee subgroups please throw some light.....

All good suggestions will be definitely rewarded...

Regards,

SA

    Hi,

    in the assignment part of the Employee Subgroups in IMG, you define for which country the EG/ESG combination is valid.

    If you make sure that for each country only those combinations of EG/ESG are valid, then you're fine.

    Or am I misinterpreting the question...

      Hi,

      In order to have those 20 ESG used in all countries just proceed as Wilfred Krens proposed. Allow each combinations of EG/ESG to all countries you are using.Then you will be able to used the some EGS everywhere.

      IMG >Enterprise Structure >Assignment >Human Resources Management >Assign employee subgroup to employee group.

      Regards,

    Hi,

    it can be achieved to have 'global' ESG's.

    A must to achieve this, however, is to be willing to do concessions related to the employee subgroup groupings.

      hi

      having ESGs globally is not impossible, because we will have many employee subgroups which are having same functionality..if at all any functionality is different for one country then have another esg for that country seperately and give grouping for this esg in time or payroll..

      just go for many employee subgroups under each employee group if functionality differs for some countries and group them again

      i will really work..we worked like this only...and its a general practice

    Hi..

    SAP Definition

    The employee group allows you to divide your employees into groups and allows you to define their relationship to the enterprise. The following essential organizational functions can be carried out using the employee group:

    generating default values when entering data; for example, for the payroll accounting area or for the basic pay of the employee

    generating a selection criterion for evaluations

    generating a unit for the authorization check

    Employee Group defines the relationship with the Company
