Your broker will work with you to set up and establish necessary Locations, Departments, Divisions, Job Classes and Job Titles.  

  • While, this information may be useful for reporting purposes, Locations, Divisions, Job Classes, and Departments may be used to determine eligibility for plans, rates, contributions and/or waiting periods.  
    • If organization types are being used in the portal, it is best practice to assign a type (location, department, division, job class) to each employee. 
  • Do not make changes to the organization without first discussing the impact on benefit plan eligibility, etc. with your broker.
  • If HRIS features are enabled, Locations, Departments, Divisions, and Job Classes can be used to determine eligibility for different Time Off policies. 
    • They may also display to employees in the employee Directory and allow employees to filter the Directory view by these organization types. 
    • Company Stats show metrics based on the organization types entered. 


Notes:

  • As long as an employee is assigned to a Location, Department, Division, Job Class or Job Title, you cannot delete it from the organization.
