When an employee is hired, payroll should ensure the employee's data is entered into the appropriate corporate systems that tracks organizational information. PeopleSoft and SAP are two systems used by organizations to track their organizational structures. Human Resources staff should ensure the appropriate data is submitted to payroll. This latter data would include changes in employee, compensation and position data. The organizational structure should also include the position's reporting relationship and may also include links to qualifications, job roles, performance reviews, competencies, etc.
In my experience, organizations do not always track compensation and job evaluation data properly.
