Learning Objectives

Reading this article will help you learn:

  • The key configuration aspects of the equal opportunity survey (EOS) report
  • How to use infotype 0033 (statistics), subtype PR (promotions ) for this purpose
  • How to download the promotion details from actions through a standard program
  • How to upload the promotion details into infotype 0033 and subtype PR via a standard program
  • How to run the EOS report (report RPLEOSU0)
Key Concept

Report RPLEOSU0 is the equal opportunity survey (EOS) that is produced by the SAP ERP HCM system to satisfy the requirements established by the Office of Federal Compliance Programs (a division of the US Department of Labor) for selected federal contractors and sub-contractors.

Employee promotions are often considered part of the organizational assignment. However, in some countries information on promotions is required for statutory reporting. An example of this is equal opportunity survey (EOS) reporting in the US. I show you how to configure the standard SAP ERP HCM system to store promotions and use this information for required equal employment opportunity reporting without writing or modifying standard codes.

The following five steps explain the entire process of using SAP HCM ERP system’s promotions functionality for EOS reporting:

  1. Configure the required actions for promotions.
  2. Update the master data (actions for promotions) of the employee.
  3. Download the action (promotion) details through standard program RPUEOSU0.
  4. Upload the action details into infotype 0033 (statistics), subtype PR (promotions).
  5. Check the data availability in infotype 0033 and subtype PR.
As part of this configuration, you must enable infotype 0033 and subtype PR for the respective country groupings. Details for how to do this can be found in my previous SAPexperts article, “Enhance the Standard SAP ERP HCM System With Unlimited Employee Social Information.” This article clearly explains how to activate or enable the particular infotype for your country grouping.
