The reports in Populum are created based on how the organization tree looks like the moment a specific survey cycle closes. Depending on how the organization tree looks like, each manager may have reports for different organizational scopes.
- One level – Includes all employees reporting directly to the manager in the organization tree. An employee is considered a “direct report” even if he/she belongs to a group below the manager (as long as there is no other manager – or vacant position – between the manager and the employee). If the manager only has (and always only have had) direct reporting employees (i.e. no subordinate managers), and not two (or more) separate groups, one level is the only available report scope.
- All levels – Includes all employees below the manager in the organization tree (i.e. not only direct reports). For the CEO, the all level report scope is thus equal to the total report scope for the whole organization. If the manager only has (and always only have had) direct reporting employees, no all level report is available.
- Groups – If a manager has two or more separate groups below him/her, separate report scopes for the individual groups are also available. If a group has more than 1 organizational level (i.e. if there are managers in the group), the group itself will also have both a report scope for one level (only including the top level of employees in the group) and one for all levels (including all employees within the group – regardless of level).
- Organizational units – For organizational units defined and named (in Populum) – such as a region or business area – a total report scope including all employees within the unit will also be available. This report scope is equal to the all level report scope of the unit manager, but enables some additional functionality, e.g. filtering of results based on employee attributes (see below).
- Segment – In addition to the report scopes derived from the structure of the organization tree, it is also possible to see results and analyzes for a certain segment of employees, based on available employee attributes (e.g. gender, role or geography) – provided that your organization has activated this functionality. Such filtering is possible on the report scope for organizational units (see above), and segments can thus be said to constitute a sub-scope of an organizational unit.
