Fusion Workforce Compensation
In this article we will learn about oracle fusion workforce compensation step by step. Every organization has different ways of compensating their group of workers on an ah hoc basis or periodically such as annually, half-yearly etc. These compensations are not always monetary but other forms of compensations also like stock allocation, perk etc. To compensate larger group of employees an organization need to release budget and plan the cycle well in advance. These all can be done through fusion workforce compensation plan, which we will cover in detail in this article. As stated earlier workers can also be given compensation based on their performance outside the regular cycle without releasing any budget, this form of compensation is called Individual Compensation, which we have already covered in our previous article Oracle Fusion Individual Compensation Plan Explained With Examples.
