How to Automatically Determine Employee Raise Eligibility In Microsoft Dynamics GP

by | Updated January 29, 2020 | Dynamics GP

Tight budgets and thin margins, along with a low unemployment rate, spur companies to search for better ways to retain their employees. While this is true for many organizations, it is especially true for those with seasonal employees. In order to incentivize seasonal employees to return the following season, a Dynamics GP client analyzes each seasonal employees’ tenure in their position, raise history, and salary data at the beginning and the end of each summer season. Working with the GP team at Stoneridge Software, they put in place a process within Dynamics GP that would generate data automatically and eliminate manual analysis.

To create this report within Dynamics GP, we first created a view of each employee’s position pay code with history reason codes.

Next, we created a view of employee position pay codes.

Then we created a view that combines these two views. This is the best view for making decisions, set of data with and without history records.

From there, we created and populated a table that links pay codes to departments.

Then we created a set of data-connected workbooks for each department. Department heads then received the report for the employees they supervise. Those managers then placed an X in the spreadsheet to indicate those employees who would receive a raise.

Then we created an application within Dynamics GP that read the employees marked for a raise and create a personnel change request

This update helped streamline raises for hundreds of seasonal employees and reduced the time it took department heads to determine if and when a raise should be awarded. If you’re using Dynamics GP but still completing manual processes, reach out to the team at Stoneridge Software. We can help set up your system to make data reporting user-friendly.
