Human Resources Basics - Positions
As you work with Human resources, you’ll decide how to structure your organization, using elements, such as departments, jobs, and positions. These are among the foundational elements that you’ll configure in Human resources. Individual employees are assigned to positions which are associated with jobs.
Positions are an important element of the lower level of an organization hierarchy. A position is an individual instance of a job. For example, the position, “Sales manager (East),” is just one of the positions that is associated with the job, “Sales manager.” Positions exist in a department and are assigned to workers.
