How to setup the A3 NOM integration and how does it work?

How does the automatic management of employee bonuses and benefits work with Factorial HR?

Factorial HR facilitates the automated management of employee bonuses and benefits through the inclusion of an additional compensation type in the employee's contract. By setting this compensation type, you can automate the creation of supplements during the specified payroll period. You have the flexibility to define the amount that employees will receive if they achieve 100% of their goals within that period. In the supplements tab, you can input the percentage of the goal achieved, and Factorial will calculate the corresponding amount that the employee should receive.
