Please continue to evangelize the Data Definitions/Metadata Development/Data Stewardship process to your peers and invite them to attend one of our weekly meetings. Additionally, anyone that has an interest in the content of our meeting is welcome to attend (regardless of their business function) and as we move more into stewardship, will become an invaluable resource in understanding the impact of and business requirements around HR data throughout the organization.
While investigating Talent Source, a series of questions came up around the various Job Action:Reason groupings. Larry will be chase down the technical explanations but there are still a number of issues that relate to the business definition. Please come prepared with definitions on the following terms and consider whether the current technical definition (derivation) accurately captures the intention of your definition.
|Term||Action:Reason Code(s) (‘*’ represents all)|
|Hires (as used on Overview/Workforce Activity Summary)||HIR:* or REH:*|
|Reclassification (by logically separating the “Hires” out of Workforce Activity Details/Talent Source Analysis)||JRC:JRC or JRC:ZJC, XFR:PRO|
|Promotions (as used on Overview/Workforce Activity Summary)||JRC:JRC or JRC:ZJC, XFR:PRO|
|Terminations (as used on Overview/Workforce Activity Summary)||TER:* or TWB:* or RET:*|
|Movement (as used on Overview/Workforce Activity Summary)||XFR:MOV or XFR:LAT or XFR:ZFF or XFR:ZTF|
We are down to our last few definitions! Beyond the previously mentioned open issues, the only remaining terms are Research and Administration. Currently the definitions are rather technical so please look to create an understandable business definition that clearly speaks to what these term represent in the context of the dashboard. Be sure to note that these values are based off of Expenditure Type Code rather than the amount of the actual activities that are performed.
In the time before our meeting next week, you can leave comments on the pages (by clicking on the “Add Comment” link at the bottom of the page). Please use the criteria for a well-defined term from the wiki (https://asconfluence.stanford.edu/confluence/x/1wCGFg) as well as your knowledge of the business. We will continue “6-Minute Definitions” in our next meeting.
The remaining terms are:
|On Help||Concept (Click for Current Metadata)||Status||Review Date|
|X||Talent Source||In Progress|
We are still looking to accumulate the various terms for organizations and groupings of organizations at Stanford. Currently, the HR Metrics Dashboard has School/VP, Area, Sub-area, Department, Sub-department. What other terms are used in your area of the university? Please see the homework from January 18th for examples.
