Cause

This is not possible because this field is not a data model field, but a hard-coded field that is only found in the hire wizards

The rule will not trigger because the field is not part of the job information element, which is where you add the trigger for the rule

Resolution

This will not be possible

It will set the value of the company field in the job information section of the add new employee wizard, but not at the top of the wizard
