Employment & Compensation Changes + History

by Axel Norvell, Lead Designer @ GoCo - August 23rd, 2017


We've just released a new feature that allows you to put in past, current and upcoming employment and compensation changes, along with a historical view of those changes.  Here's how it works!

Add Past, Current and Future Changes Easily!

GoCo now allows you to add past, present and future employment and compensation changes.  This allows you to do several things, such as:

  1. Give someone a raise in the future by adding an employment change effective in the future.  GoCo will automatically update the employee's information on the effective date you choose!

  2. Add past historical changes by adding an employment change with an effective date in the past.

  3. Immediately update employment and compensation by making the changes effective today.

Get started by clicking on the Make Changes link under the Employment & Compensation card from an employee's profile.  It's as easy as that!

See how your changes will affect benefits and payroll

Now when you make an employment or compensation change, GoCo will show you how your changes will affect the employee's benefit eligibility, and when their changes will be synced to payroll.

Benefit changes could include:

  • Gaining Eligibility - the employee will be offered benefit coverage to enroll.

  • Losing Eligibility - the employee's benefit coverage will be canceled.

  • Changing Plans - the employee will be asked to enroll in a new plan.

  • No Change - the employee's benefit won't be affected by the changes you're making.

View employment and compensation history

You're now able to view how the employment and compensation of an employee has changed over time.  Each set of changes will show you the effective date, a list of changed fields, who made the change and their reason.

This allows you to easily track employment changes such as:

  • Compensation changes, such as salary, hourly rate, and stock options

  • Department and location changes

  • Employment status changes such as part-time and full-time

  • Time off policy and payroll schedule changes

  • Company class changes used for benefit eligibility

  • and more!

We'd love to hear from you!

We're confident this update will bring you and your employees a much-improved experience related to making critical employment and compensation changes.
