How can I use wages in Workforce Planning?

Background

Wages allow you you calculate the cost of your workforce in Workforce Planning. There are three places where you can track wages:

  1. Wage Overrides. A wage for a job title on a specific project. This overrides the wage in the person's profile and the default job title configuration.
  2. People's Profiles. A person's specific wage.
  3. Job Titles. The default wages associated with a job title.

When calculating wages, the wage used is based on the above hierarchy: Wage Overrides are considered first, followed by wages in a person's profile and finally, wages that are associated with default job title settings.

After wages are set up, you can calculate the cost of people, job titles and projects by configuring 'Cost' as the 'Total Cell Units' on the Assignments Gantt and Totals Dashboard.

Answer

To use wages to view the cost of people, job titles and projects:

  1. Configure wages
  2. Caculate cost on the Assignments Gantt and Totals Dashboard

Configure Wages

First, configure wages in the following places:

Configure Wages in Job Titles

To configure default wages for job titles, follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the Company level Workforce Planning tool.
  2. Click the Configure Settings icons-settings-gear.png icon.
  3. Click Job Titles.
  4. Locate the job title you want to configure a wage for and click Edit
    Note: If you need to create a new job title, see Configure Job Titles for Workforce Planning.
  5. Enter the default or average Hourly Rate for that job title.
    Note: This is typically the general rate for the job title and used for forecasting or estimating.
     Important

    Wages can be entered as hourly or a salary. However, in order to properly calculate cost for a salaried employee, Procore recommends calculating and entering their hourly rate, instead of a salary.
