Job Catalog

In this article you will understand how to use Job Catalog, a section where new clients in Factorial can create, assign and configure the roles to their employees.

What is Job Catalog? 

Thanks to the job catalog you will have a consistent database in terms of the jobs held by employees within the company. With this, you will be able to obtain a better quality of data compared to the job title since it is fed by a series of jobs pre-established in the catalog.

  • A job is the result of a role and a level. Even if two people share the same role, their responsibilities and labor conditions may vary depending on their level. Therefore, these two people are considered to be in different jobs.
    • Role → Specific activity that contributes to the company's goals.
    • Level → Degree of performance within a role

👀 Job Catalog is a page within the employee section where clients in Factorial can create, assign and configure the roles to their employees.

👀It is possible to add more Legal entities, or levels. You will be able also to archive and unarchive the levels. You will also be able to unassign any of the legal entities related to the role.


🚨 If some employees have a role that doesn’t belong to their legal entity or their level has been archived, they will still keep this data. They can be modified from the jobs section by clicking on employees with the wrong job data.

Assign Jobs

Once you have created the roles and levels, it is possible to assign them to your company's employees in two different ways.

Once you assign a job to an employee, they will appear in the employees list of the role.
