Employee types can be used to subcategorise employees into different criteria, for example, full-time, part-time, over/under 18, paid per hour/salaried, interns etc. This is useful if you want to dispense supplements, apply absence accounts or set up working time rules.

You can set up employee types by going to Settings > People > General > Employee types and pressing Create.

Here you can give your employee type a name, for example, Intern, set up a salary code if you have a payroll integration in place and give it a description to easily distinguish the employee type from others.

You can now assign the employee type to a staff member when you create or edit an employee under People > Employees > press the name of an employee you wish to update > Edit > Personal details.

Employee types filter in the employee overview

You can look at all your employees under an Employee type by going to People > Employees. There you can filter your employees by Employee types which you will find on the left sidebar.
