If your company has offices in different parts of the country, locations could be - Newcastle and London.
Or, perhaps your company operates in different countries, locations could be Barcelona and Paris.
Locations to represent parts of your business
Useful for grouping employees and for running reports, locations could be Sales and Services, made up of various teams, or could relate to different parts of a building you work in. For example, different floors etc.
📎NOTE: In Sage HR, locations are not related to teams and don't impact them in anyway.
