 Compensation Program (0758)


This infotype is used for macro eligibility purposes and help you differentiate employees for compensation purposes. Macro eligibility refers to a set of high-level criteria that help you determine whether a group of employees is eligible for a compensation plan, as shown in the example below.

You can create/update records on hiring or when an employee changes position, an event that is likely to move the employees to different compensation program groupings.

This infotype enables you to:

  • Assign employees to compensation areas.

  • Determine the set of compensation plans for which an employee may be eligible.


First compensation program grouping:

  • Executive / Non-executive

  • Salaried / Hourly paid

Second compensation program grouping:

  • Full-time / Part-time

  • Active / Retiree


Typically, this infotype is maintained manually by the HR administrator or the compensation specialist. However, you can also run the program Create Compensation Program Records when you first use Enterprise Compensation Management to maintain this infotype for a large number of employees or on a regular basis for new employees.

You can provide default values for the compensation area and the first/second compensation program groupings by means of the features mentioned below.

An employee can have one record per compensation area but more than one record with different compensation areas. Consequently, an employee can be assigned to more than one compensation area at the same time.

Preliminary Steps

You must have executed the Hiring personnel action and maintained the relevant infotypes.
