Once a position is declared a Head of the Org Unit –
- The position becomes the manager for all employees belonging to the Organizational Unit
- The Manager automatically becomes responsible for the approval of timesheet, training requests and any other SAP workflow.
Two important things should be considered when assigning a position as the Chief:
- A position can be assigned as Chief to one Org Unit ONLY
- An Org Unit without chief will automatically inherit the chief of the Org Unit it belongs to.
