Organization of Human Resources

This chapter describes OpenERP's core 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. Open ERP's human resource modules enable you to manage important aspects of staff work efficiently, such as their skills, contracts, and working time.

For this chapter you should start with a fresh database that includes demo data, with hr_timesheet and all of its dependencies installed and no particular chart of accounts configured.
