In recent decades, human resources departments have continued to evolve to such an extent that they now represent a vital element of corporate strategy. They manage one of the business’s most important resources; its employees. They oversee everything from the selection and recruiting process to attract new talent, to the creation of a positive workplace experience to ensure new employees are retained.
Due to the shift in the working model driven by the outbreak of the healthcare crisis, human resources departments have been plunged into a period of transformation. In a very short period of time, they have been forced to find new tools and solutions which allow them to carry out their role uninterrupted, while also offering the potential to evolve in line with changing needs.
This has meant the vast majority of businesses migrating their systems to cloud environments that help give them the agility and speed required to take on new challenges. As part of this essential transformation of the human resources department, having a powerful, comprehensive software suite is absolutely vital. This solution must be capable of delivering all the support you need in order to carry out and optimise processes, as well as the flexibility to adapt seamlessly to any changes.
SAP SuccessFactors offers this and much more. Below, we go into greater detail about the features of this market-leading human capital management suite.
SAP SuccessFactors is one of the most cutting-edge and comprehensive human resources management suites on the market. It’s a cloud-based technology solution which integrates a wide array of processes to provide the HR department with complete support across all of its action areas.
It has been devised as a modular solution. This means it comprises several independent modules, including human talent management, organisational management, payroll and time management, performance evaluation, reporting and personnel analytics, etc., giving you the freedom to implement whichever elements your company requires. The complete module selection allows SAP SuccessFactors to cover the entire employee cycle, from their beginnings as a job candidate, through to any promotions and their ultimate departure, capturing all the information generated in the meantime.
Implementing the suite will help your managers optimise their time, streamlining tasks that would otherwise require them to jump from one system to another. All modules are accessible through a single interface, which means no workflow disruption. There will also be significant improvements in gathering strategic information about your workforce thanks to SAP People Analytics. This module offers hugely powerful analytical capabilities, especially if integrated with SAP Analytics Cloud and its planning and forecast modules. This will provide the ability to measure trends, patterns and behaviors, as well as to view information in graphical and statistical form to support decision-making.
What’s more, SAP SuccessFactors can prove an incredibly useful tool for your employees. They will have access to a portal that acts as a point of contact and interaction with the business. This helps facilitate a whole host of procedures with the HR department, while also enhancing the employee experience by providing new features which strengthen their loyalty to the company.
Below is a list of the various SAP SuccessFactors modules that can help you cater for your organisational needs, as well as handle all kinds of workforce-management issues:
Modules for the core HR department capabilities
Modules for managing the business’s human talent
Employee experience modules
SAP SuccessFactors gives you the ability to implement the suite on a module-by-module basis, adapting gradually to the real needs of your business. It can also be integrated with other existing tools through the cloud-based SAP Business Technology Platform (BTP).
Furthermore, if you find a need for additional applications not included in the suite, SAP boasts a solid ecosystem of satellite modules and applications that will enable you to enhance functionality. Meanwhile, if you need to boost performance, SAP SuccessFactors possesses modules that come loaded with predefined content for various processes, workflows and groups that will mean you can have the tool up and running, and according to best practices, in no time at all.
