For HR professionals working in the UK, Gender Pay Gap reporting will have most likely been a hot topic issue for the past few years. With the Gender Pay Gap Information regulations that came into effect in April 2017, employers with more than 250 relevant employees are required to publish a snapshot of their employee data detailing the difference in average pay for male and female employees by 4 April 2018.
Reporting in SAP Human Capital management (HCM) is often referred to as the largest challenge for customers. Limited data is available (i.e. master data or table values) while other data is quite limited to find (payroll results or time data).
Human Capital Management data is found on Infotypes in SAP HCM. Each infotype has a 4-digit numeric identifier, like Infotype 0008 for Basic Pay. There are certain ranges of numbers to denote the types of data in the infotype. For example, Personnel Administration data can be found on infotypes in the number range 0000 through 0999. Data related to HR planning and Organizational Management can be found in the range 1000 through 1999. Time Management data is found in 2000 through 2999 and Applicant data is found in infotypes in the 4000 through 4999 range.
