How Long Should Positions Stay Open?

When an associate leaves your orgaization, his/her position remains open until you fill it or close it. As a general rule, you should leave a position open if you intend to fill it within the next six months. Open positions are your way of letting the company know what to project for headcount, so you should review open positions monthly through the lens of whether you still envision filling those seats. Carefully consider as well that in closing a position, you will no longer have access to the history of that position (date created, previous incumbents, period of vacancy, etc.).

Don’t Terminate Transferring Associates

Is one of your associates transferring to another OpCo? Don’t terminate them! The Talent Acquisition or HR Data team will handle all the necessary changes. See the Position Management job aid for more information about transfers.

Cost Center Details for New Positions

When you create a new position, the cost center will auto-populate/default. However, the cost center can be modified. It’s a best practice to always review the cost center information for accuracy.

Roles in the Transfer Process

Remember, managers can only move associates into non-competitive positions. TA handles all competitive moves (moves into jobs that have been posted on the career site). If a manager tries to move an associate into a competitive position, they will receive an error message when they submit the move. See the Job Changes job aid for more information.
