In the blog post today, we're going to give you an overview of the Workforce Planning module in PBCS.

Oracle Hyperion Workforce module is a web-based workforce planning and budgeting solution that provides up-to-date information on workforce expenses for your business. It allows you to model future headcount and employee-related expenses using out of the box context such as pre-built drivers, forms and dashboards. By using Workforce Planning in PBCS, planners can apply various business assumptions and plan for the future by effectively managing one of their largest variable expenses.

Workforce Planning can perform the following tasks:

  • Plan headcount and employee compensation by employee, job code or both
  • Calculate workforce-related expenses, including salary, bonuses, taxes, and health care benefits based on drivers
  • Include employee transfer functionality from one department to another, facilitating headcount management across dynamic organizations
  • Include event-based activities, such as new hires, departure, maternity leave or leave of absence
  • Drill-through from summary values to underlying detailed data
  • Integrate with other Human Capital Management systems
  • Support working with Workforce Planning forms using Smart View for Office

4.  Workforce Planning calculates all compensation components for existing employees, so you can focus on reviewing existing employees for changes. After you review and update existing employee information, you can plan for new hires. Once you finish planning all new hires, Workforce Planning runs the calcuations for their entire organization to get an updated plan for total compensation and headcount.

5.  You can view a summary of company expenses, department employee expenses and department headacount from pre-built dashboards in Workforce Planning. You can also build customized dashboards to visualize workforce data that are relevant to your company's business processes.
