Employee Category Dimension


Return to Human Resources Model Overview

Employees are grouped into employee categories (e.g. by contract types) to distinguish parameters for calculated personnel costs, such as health insurance rates. The base elements must be direct children of the root element All Employee Categories.

Base elements of the Employee dimension are assigned to the employee categories by the Employee Category attribute. Mandatory elements in this dimension are:



All Employee Categories

Root element summarizing all base elements showing 100% of all employee categories.


The NA (not applicable) element of the dimension, which holds data that is not broken down by region. Must be child of All Employee Categories. This is also the default write element of this dimension


Grouping of unexpected elements found during data load. Must be child of All Employee Categories. This is the default parent element of this dimension.

This dimension must have additional base elements to hold data that is broken down by employee category.

The employee category elements can be configured through their attributes:




Readable name of the employee category. Localized translations can be provided. This attribute is visible in the report. There is no hard-coded behavior implemented on this name. (string)


Combination of element name, a dash (“ – “), and the localized name attribute. (calculated, string)


Long text for the employee category. This attribute can contain a comprehensive definition of the employee category or instructions for the planners. Localized translations can be provided. (string)
