Add/Edit employee categories

Updated inย February- 2024 |ย Subscribe to watch greytHR how-to video

Adding employee categories refers to the process of creating new categories or modifying existing categories that are used to classify employees based on specific criteria or characteristics in a software application or system.

When you add employee categories, you create new classifications to group employees based on common attributes, such as employment status (full-time, part-time, contract), job roles, departments, locations, or any other relevant factors. This allows for better organization and management of employee data within the software.

The Employee Position page in the greytHR Admin portal allows you to add/edit employee categories. These categories help you to assign a position to your employees in the organization. The page provides you with an option to delete any particular category or record. The changes you make on this page reflect on the Position History page under the employee module. You can also download the information on employee categories in excel format.

To view the Employee Position page, click the Settings icon > System Settings > Employee > Employee Position.

You can perform the following actions on the Employee Position page:

  1. Add/Edit employee categories.

  2. Add positions to employee categories.

  3. Download employee categories.

โš ๏ธ We recommend you to contact the greytHR support team before making any changes in settings.
