About the Employee Group/Subgroup Infotype (1013)


Infotype with which an employee group and subgroup can be assigned to a position.


The Employee Group/Subgroup infotype is an optional infotype and is only created for positions. If you create this infotype and install both the Personnel Administration and Organizational Management components, you can check both employee and position data in both components. To carry out this check, the employee groups and subgroups must be available in both components.

The system checks that:

  • Both the employee assigned to a position, and the position itself, are assigned to the same employee group and employee subgroup
  • Work schedules assigned to positions and employee groups/subgroups in Organizational Management are consistent with the working times assigned to the holder of the position (the employee) in Personnel Administration.

If the system detects an inconsistency, a warning message appears. You can, however, still proceed with activities.

When integration is inactive, this infotype is still relevant, since the system checks employee groups and subgroups when you work with work schedules.

Employee groups and subgroups are user-defined, when Personnel Administration is installed. Refer to the Personnel Administration section of the Implementation Guide (IMG).

You can maintain this infotype using Infotype Maintenance, by creating infotype records one object at a time. Or, you can work in Simple Maintenance, where procedures are streamlined.
