Areas of Responsibility
With great power comes great responsibility
Use Your Responsibility Wisely
You can find the option to Manage Areas of Responsibility (MAR) in the Person Management work area. The MAR option helps you do a few important things:
- Assign responsibilities to an individual
- Select which people or groups fall under that individual's new responsibilities
If you assign the same responsibility to multiple people, there's sometimes overlap with who they are responsible for – but clearing it up is easy.
Say you make xyz responsible for an organization's HR and you set the scope of her assignment by designating her responsible for everyone at an organization's office location of Redwood City.
But then you give another HR Specialist, ABC, HR responsibility and define the scope of her responsibilities as everyone who is a senior manager.
xyz's responsible for people in Redwood City, and ABC's responsible for senior managers. But workers who show up in both – senior managers in Redwood City – will see both xyz and ABC listed as their HR representative.
If that's not what you want, just redefine the scope of Betty and Veronica's responsibilities using a different combination of information. You'll learn more about how to do that, in a minute.
