Return To The Knowledge Base

Staff Positions clarify the credentials and responsibilities of your organization’s staff members.


From the Argenta main menu on the left-hand side of the screen, choose Staff and HR > Staff Positions.


Click the “Add New” button. This will pop up the Add a Staff Position window.



Enter the Staff Position title in the Staff Position/Job Title field. Then, select the Staff Position’s Department and Required Education Level from their corresponding drop-down lists. If the department is not in the system, you can add it by clicking the “Add New” button. These are required fields.


All drop-down lists in Argenta help to create comprehensive reports. Argenta comes loaded with predefined values for all of these drop-down lists, but you can change them at any time. You can add or delete any of these values by selecting the corresponding section from the Argenta Main Menu. To update departments, choose Departments/Divisions from the My Organization Menu.


Next, fill out the following fields as necessary:

- Full or Part Time

- Payroll Category: Select the method of paying the staff member (hourly, salary, commission, etc.)

- Starting Pay Range: Minimum amount Staff Members in this Staff Position can earn.

- Ending Pay Range: Maximum amount Staff Members in this Staff Position can earn.

- Per: Select a term in which the pay range corresponds to (hourly, weekly, monthly, etc.)


These are all required fields.


You many also want to specify the skills and experience required for this position. You can do so by filling out the Skills Required box at the bottom of the window. This is an open field, which can contain as many items as needed. This is not a required field.


After reviewing the information entered, click the “Add this Staff Position” button to finish. The window will close and you will find your new Staff Position in the Staff Position list.
