Key Features HR¶
This chapter describes OpenERP’s main Human Resources and Employee Services features. Most of the solutions discussed after this chapter concern management by business or by project, and depend mostly on analytic accounting, with each business or project represented by an analytic account.
A company’s effectiveness depends on its employees’ good work. OpenERP’s Human Resources modules enable you to manage important aspects of staff work efficiently, such as their skills, contracts, and working time.
