People Management helps every business organize their staff. It also automates the whole recruiting process. All Personnel records can be categorized based on pre-defined or customized characteristics and linked with their CV and any other relevant documents.

When viewing specific Personnel you can view their Personnel Schedule and basic Entitlement, which are based on the specific Region Code of Personnel. Region Codes are set in Regional Settings by System Administrators.

Skills of each individual can be added either manually or via the person’s Job Title assignment. You can search for personnel by specific skills to assist with Project Management and other business decisions.

Absences can also be managed via the Personnel unit.
