Ending/Extending Contract Workers

Contingent worker contracts should be ended by the manager as soon as the contractor stops working at Sysco. End dates are included in the initial set-up of the Hiring Contingent Worker (Contractor) process.

If a Contingent Worker stays longer than originally planned, managers can extend their contract in Workday. 

Make it a point to regularly review your contracts and end/extend them appropriately. See the Organizational/Position Management job aid for more about contingent contracts.

Managing Your Supervisory Organization

Your Supervisory Organization page provides critical information about your team members, open positions, and job requisitions. To find this page, search for your name and click the option that says “Supervisory Organization.” See this job aid for more information.


Position vs. Job Profile

Though they’re related, a position and a job profile are very different things. A position is a seat in your organization. A job profile is assigned to a seat and describes the job duties and pay range of the associate who sits in it. See the Position Management video for more information.


Opening a New Position

Before you open a new position, follow this quick checklist:

Do you already have an open position? Check your My Open Positions worklet.

Is someone leaving an existing position? You can use overlap to let the departing associate and new associate share the position.

If you need to open a new position, pay attention to the position’s availability date. You cannot open a job requisition before that date.

Watch the Position Management video to learn more.

Overlap Requires a Termination or Job Change

While you can initiate a job requisition on any position, you can only hire and overlap an associate AFTER a termination or job change has been initiated. You cannot overlap with a new associate until the current associate has been scheduled to vacate the position through a termination, promotion/demotion, or transfer.
