  SAP HR reporting tips and techniques  

Managers and other leaders are often tasked with preparing a regular business report -- even a daily or nightly business report -- to give their superiors a strategic picture of what's going on in a particular department.

Human resources (HR) is no exception. One of HR's more pressing tasks is to conduct reports that can be of use to both the department and the executive suite. SAP offers plenty of built-in HR reporting functionality, but it takes some getting used to. Read HR reporting -- How to Get the Most Out of It -- for helpful tips. For example, learn how to avoid basic project mistakes that can slow down a report. The point is not to approach reporting in a reactive, tactical way but to take control of the SAP HR report on a strategic level.

The advanced HR report

Because HR is responsible not only for providing services to employees but also for reporting up to senior management and line-of-business leaders, the HR department of today also enjoys a business intelligence function. Fortunately, SAP HR offers several reporting options for addressing these kinds of needs. For example, you can obtain a consolidated report from multiple payroll runs or pull an HR report from Cumulate results table. You can get an overview of other reporting functions by checking out standard SAP HR programs.

There are more advanced SAP HR reporting functions as well, such as displaying custom objects in PPOME, learning about common vs. separate HR Org structures, or understanding a function similar to RH_GET_ORG_ASSIGNMENT. Knowing how to perform these kinds of technical maneuvers within SAP HR Reporting will improve your performance at any SAP HR job.
