HCM is the system used for human resources and payroll. It is also known as Oracle Human Capital Management (HCM).
A supervisor is the person who monitors and regulates an employee’s daily performance of assigned tasks. Direct supervisors are authorized to hire, discipline, promote, reward and perform other associated activities for the employees in their departments.
The supervisor listed on an employee’s record in HCM should be the person who completes the employee's annual performance review.
Ensuring supervisors are assigned correctly in HCM is key to HR's ability to deliver services and support for our employees. Correcting this information will also enable us to improve our services; for example it will allow us to generate organizational charts and reports.
In addition, many of the University’s other systems and processes depend on accurate supervisor information.
