Human Resources

Global Human Resources

Oracle Fusion Global Human Resources enables your organization to plan, manage and optimize all workforce segments using flexible and extensible best practices to realize extraordinary gains while ensuring compliance and increasing total workforce engagement.

Enhanced Add Person Flows

Streamline the user experience with the changed Add Person flows. The earlier Employment Information page is now split into two train stops: Employment Information and Compensation and Other Information to avoid page scrolling. The Compensation and Other Information train stop includes compensation, benefits, and role details. You can now add direct reports to a manager in the same transaction on the Employment Information page.

Enhanced Manage Direct Reports

Enhance the manage direct reports functionality with matrix management support. You can now add direct reports or reassign both direct and other types of reports to different manager types from the Manage Direct Reports page. You also have the option to select or deselect the direct reports in a single click.

The ability to manage direct reports is also integrated in the following manager self-service pages: Hire, Add Contingent Worker, Promote, Transfer, Change Working Hours, and Change Manager. In addition the Manage Direct Reports functionality is also included in the following human resource specialist processes: Hire, Add Contingent Worker, Create Work Relationship, Global Transfer, Global Temporary Assignment, Temporary Assignment, Add Assignment, Add Work Terms, End Assignment, and End Work Terms.

However, on the Terminate page, you can manage only direct line reports because terminations may involve multiple assignments.

Changes from Extensible to User for Specific Person Lookup Types

Control the lookup codes in the following lookup types that are converted from a customization level of extensible to user:

You can now change the above Oracle delivered lookup codes, tags and enabled fields.

Enhanced Duplicate Person Validation

Enhance the user experience with the new duplicate person validation. You can now prevent creation of duplicate people when loading workers using the Worker service. The Person Creation Service Duplicate Check option is added on the Enterprise HCM Information page. This option is used when creating workers though the Worker service. If provided, this validation checks for matches between person name, date of birth, gender, and national ID. The validation generates an error and prevents creation of a duplicate person if there are any conflicts.

Salary Update When Changing Working Hours

Enhance Line Manager’s ability to update the salary of part-time workers when changing their working hours. You can now update the salary by using the Change Working Hours task in Manager Self-Service.

Areas of Responsibility Enhanced to Include Additional Attributes and Responsibility

Provide greater flexibility in defining the scope of areas of responsibility. You can now define scope based on job families and job functions. The Areas of Responsibility page also shows a new Recruiting responsibility type and new scope attributes based on recruiting type and hierarchies. The recruiting responsibility type and recruiting attributes are for use with a future enhancement.

Job Family Code Added to Job Family Pages

Enhance the user experience with the addition of a new field, Job Family Code, on the Manage Job Family and Create Job Family pages. The job family code facilitates tighter integration with other external applications such as Oracle Taleo Recruiting Cloud Service that have this attribute and require the value to be passed to Oracle Fusion Human Capital Management (HCM). The attribute value is automatically populated from the job family name after formatting it into capitals and replacing blank spaces with underscores.

Employment Model Simplification

Choose from the simplified employment model which now includes the following 2 Tier options for new customers:

Existing customers can continue to use the following 3 Tier options:

Streamlined Navigation

Simplify navigation for users and encourage use of new menu items such as Career Planning and Skills and Qualifications. Menu items including Person Gallery, My Portrait, and Talent Profile are now moved from the Navigation and springboard to the simplified navigation.  

Enhanced pages and navigation replace the functionality available in the Person Gallery and Portrait pages.  The functionality previously accessible from these pages is now available in the person spotlight. You can access the person spotlight by clicking the person name in the Directory, Smart Navigation, My Team, Team Talent and Team Compensation pages. In the person spotlight, you can view a person's public information, employment details, skills and qualifications, career plans, goals, performance, succession plans, compensation, and documents. However, the information that you see in the person spotlight depends on your privileges. Additional private details such as address, payslips, benefit enrollments, and compensation are available in the Personal Information work area. 

Streamlined Navigation to Infolets and OTBI Reports

Simplify navigation for users and encourage use of new components such as infolets and flexible analytics built in Oracle Transaction Business Intelligence (OTBI). The Manager Resources and Human Resources dashboards are removed to encourage usage of these new components.

Display Flexfield Information on Review Pages for Jobs, Positions, Grades, and Locations

Enhance the user experience with the display of flexfield information on the Review page when creating or editing jobs, positions, grades, and locations. You can now see the flexfields and the associated values for the above workforce structures.

Synchronization of Grade Ladder from Position

Enhance the user experience with the synchronization of the grade ladder in the assignment from the position. Grade ladder, a new option is added to Position Synchronization Configuration section on the Manage Enterprise HCM Information and Manage Legal Entity HCM Information pages.

Changed Rules for Populating Grades and Grade Ladders in Assignments

Enhance the user experience with the changed rules for populating grades and grade ladders in an assignment. The Default Valid Grades profile option can be used independently of the Enforce Valid Grades profile option. You can now also populate the grade in the assignment from the valid grades in the position even if there is no entry grade at the position. If valid grades are enforced or selected for position synchronization, this takes precedence over the grade ladder. If the enforced valid grade is not part of the selected grade ladder, a warning is shown in the assignment.

New Position Attribute - Standard Working Hours

Capture the standard working hours for a position to support part time positions. Use the new Standard Working Hours field on the Create and Edit Position pages to capture standard working hours, which can be different from working hours to support part-time positions. The working hours are captured as working hours in the assignment and the standard working hours of the position display as standard working hours in the assignment. The working hours and standard working hours are used to calculate the assignment FTE.

New Scheduled Process for Position Synchronization

Automate position synchronization with the new Synchronize Person Assignment from Position process. This process must be run regularly to update impacted assignments when position synchronization is configured for the first time or changed, or to upload position changes using HCM Data Loader.

The Initialize Position Synchronization process to load position synchronization changes is now obsolete and its function is incorporated in to the new scheduled process.

Enhanced Document Records

Improve the usability of document records by now managing it in the simplified user interface. The changes to the document records user interface include:

Enhanced Document Delivery Preferences

Improve the usability of document delivery preferences by now managing it in the simplified user interface. The document delivery preferences user interface is redesigned and is now part of the worker's Personal Information work area and the person smart navigation window.

Navigate to Person Spotlight from Internal Information Sharing

Enhance the user experience by enabling users to access a persons spotlight from the Information Sharing task, when information is shared with internal recipients. You can now view the workers person spotlight instead of the portrait when information is shared internally.

Areas of Responsibility Enhancements
