🎯 For admins. Get familiar with the structure of Planday.

Employee groups can be used to define job roles in your business. Employees can then be added to one or several Employee groups based on their skill set.

Furthermore, when you assign shifts in the Schedule, the Employee groups will help you to assign the right shifts to the right employees. All shifts are linked to an Employee group and will only be available for employees added to that specific group.

Create Employee groups

To create a new Employee group, navigate to People > Employee groups and select Create employee group. Name the employee group, add employees and click save.

You can set a default hourly wage for the employee group, but we recommend you set wages individually for employees.

Another option is to create an Employee group directly from the Employee page by clicking the + icon next to the Employee group filters on the left side of the screen.

πŸ’‘ Please note, if you are unsure of the correct Award coverage or minimum wages for your company or your employees, we encourage you to visit the Fair Work Commission Awards finder page or contact the Fair Work Ombudsman to discuss this further. Getting this right is very important and sets the foundation for paying your employees correctly. You should also seek any independent legal advice as appropriate for your business.

Editing Employee groups

You can edit the Employee group from the Employees page or navigate to People > Employee Groups. You can edit the wage for each employee in the group or add or remove employees from the group in both places.

If editing from the Employee page, your employee groups will show on the left side of the screen. Hover over the group you want to edit and select the pencil that appears.

If editing from People > Employee groups, click on the group name or hover over the group you want to edit and select the pencil that appears to the right on the screen.
