The Employee group field allows you to differentiate between different groups of employees, for example, active workforce, pensioners, and so on, through a 1-digit code.


In CREATE mode, use this field to link a position with an employee group. To do so either:

  • type in the appropriate 1-digit code, or
  • retrieve a list of person group codes and make a selection by either:
    . pressing F4, or
    . clicking on the down arrow

In CHANGE mode, enter a different code using the methods outlined above.
