Defining a Job Code


After completing this lesson, you will be able to Navigate a Job Code admin object and explain what it represents in SAP Fieldglass..

Job Code

Job Codes are used to define unique job functions or roles within an organization. They can be assigned to worker records to group people with similar skills.

When creating Job Postings, job codes can be used to search for workers according to the skills needed to fulfill an assignment. Only workers who share the same job code defined on the job posting would be listed. Results that display when using a job code search can include contingent workers, SOW workers, and profile workers, along with users and workforce records that also share the job code.

Job codes are often created to match the business functions in an organization, as illustrated in this example, in which WorkingNet has a job code for every professional role it requires.

A job code requires few characteristics, namely the Code and Name of the job code and an optional description. Since it is a data object that is used primarily to establish associations, the applicable job posting templates, activity checklists, and/or sow worker roles it is associated to are displayed.
