There are many reasons you would want to group your employees, here are a few examples
In the below example we have setup 4 groups, group 3 is Bakery 1 and group 4 is Bakery 2.
You can generate reports that give you totals of these groups.
This information can be used to determine which Bakery is performing the best.
When creating an employee roster we can display all the employees from a particular group.
This gives us the ability to see who we have on for the day at each individual store.
If a manager is setting the roster for their employees they can display the employees that are important to them.
The below example also has 2 more groups, Baker and Dairy staff.
All Bakers across the business receive the same award.
Thus they can be grouped together and rules can be created to automatically calculate their award.
The same applies to the Dairy staff.
Example list of groups:
