    Definition and Calculation

    Total recognized seniority is information available in the employee profile and in the employee summary under the "Seniority" column. The calculation of this data follows the formula:

    Seniority + Relevant Experience - Unrecognized Seniority = Total Recognized Seniority

    Key Components


    This metric indicates the time elapsed between the employee's hiring date and the current date.

    Relevant Experience

    This is an adjustable field on the employee control page, where you can enter a positive or negative value that influences the total recognized seniority.

    Unrecognized Seniority

    This part represents the duration of the employee's inactive periods during which seniority is not accrued.

    Factors Influencing the Evolution of Total Recognized Seniority

    Total recognized seniority can vary based on several elements:

    • Temporal Evolution: Seniority naturally increases over time.
    • Changes in Hiring Date: Modifications to the recorded hiring date affect the seniority calculation.
    • Adjustments in Relevant Experience: Adding or removing relevant experiences also alters this value.

    Tips and Tricks

    • It is recommended to keep the information on relevant experience updated to ensure an accurate assessment of seniority.
    • For employees who have had periods of inactivity, it is important to document these periods as unrecognized seniority to avoid calculation errors.
