Carval HR Unity is an establishment or “post-based” HR system. Here we look at the significance of this and why it's important to take the time to ensure this aspect of your system is set-up.
Every organisation has a structure or "establishment" of sorts and the larger the organisation the more complex that becomes. There may be many different companies, at different locations, with different departments and within them, or even across them, different teams of people in different posts doing different jobs.
The beauty of Carval’s HR Software is its flexibility. Our establishment or “post-based” system can accommodate unlimited companies, employees, locations, departments and cost centres. Both companies and employees can be flexibly sub-grouped and a dynamic company organisation chart is available at the touch of a button.
The importance of posts
Every employee's job description, the skills that they require, their contractual terms, the remuneration and benefits that they receive and who they report to is defined ultimately by the post that they are in. If they change post or job then these things will likely change also.
Here lies the benefit of an establishment-based HR system like Carval HR Unity over a person-based HRIS: all these key details are held against the post so you don't have to re-enter them for every employee that holds that post, or change employees' details every time they change job. This doesn't mean that you lose the flexibility to deal with exceptions - simply that processes run a lot more smoothly with a lot less input from you.
