2341381 - Behavior of Expat's data at global assignment


Here is the explanation of certain aspects of an employee central expat's data or behavior in other modules such as PM/GM (performance & goal management):

Scenario #1

Where an employee can create his objectives, in host or home profile.

When an employee is on Global Assignment, a HOST account is created, which is basically a separate UserID. This means the HOST assignment can have its own Job Info and Comp Info data.

When you raise a PM form, you can raise it either for the HOME or HOST accounts, or both. Same logic applies to Goal Plans (PM forms and Goal Plans are created against UserID).

Scenario #2

In which job(home or host) PM forms will get launched? .

Performance form will be launched based as per the launch criteria selected. For example - if you launch forms based on the EP field Location - System will create PM forms for all users with that EP "Location" value in the Basic User Data file.

Forms will get created for UserID's with that Location value.

Scenario #3

How this works in compensation ?

Same logic applies to Compensation forms too.

If customer has Compensation Integration to EC, then the form is raised based on the Comp Info for that user account (based on UserID). It will then (when raising the Comp form and based on its configuration) pull data from EC Comp Info as the PM form linked to that UserID.

In terms of how best to manage these processes on customer side, there are many options, but may be best to engage with a implementation Partner or Professional Services, to determine what might be the best practice for their business needs.

Scenario #4

How it works in succession ?

Succession is different to above integrations. Even though HOME and HOST accounts have different UserID - all "Background Information" data in EP (which is used for Succession) is stored only against the HOME account.

But the standard EP data (from basic user data file) is stored against the HOME and HOST account.Succession will return results for both Home and Host accounts - but any Background data differentiators (like Langauges, Education, Geographic Mobility) will be fetched from the HOME account.
