How to Sign Up?
Implementation can be completed in minutes if the data is clean and sanitized. For example, unsanitized data is having one employee reporting to two different managers, or two or more employees with the same employee or enterprise numbers, or employees assigned to department numbers that don't exist.
Remember, garbage in is garbage out!
Unique Employee IDs?
In our goal alignment system, each employee has two unique ID numbers; EEID and POSID.
We use “enterprise” (EEID) numbers to maintain the alignment structure. The “enterprise” number must be unique and represents each job within the company, whereas the “employee” number (POSID) represents each employee in the company. Therefore, if the employee was to leave the company, and a replacement is hired, the replacement will get a new POSID, but the same EEID is used for the new employee since the job remains.
This way the EEID maintains the hierarchy structure with the new employee assuming the vacated role. One can say the EEID numbers goes away when the job is eliminated.
Setting up database tables?
When creating “Enterprise” (EEID) numbers, plan your numbering scheme for scale. For example, give all VP positions EEID numbers from 100 – 999, assuming you have over 800 VPs. Give Director positions EEID numbers 1000 – 3999, give manager positions EEID numbers 4000 – 7999, and so on. This is only a suggestion.
Watch for different data formats such as DOH and DOB require to be in YYYY/MM/DD. Some data need to be an integer; EEID numbers, while others need to be in text.
