As more organizations adopt a hybrid of in-office and remote work options for their employees, having a flexible and mobile human resources (HR) management solution is critical. SAP SuccessFactors can deliver on that modern experience by helping you manage through any uncertainty that comes your way. You can get an overview of SAP SuccessFactors in our previous article.

This article focuses on one of the core modules: SuccessFactors Employee Central. We break down the key features and five reasons to love this solution. Let’s get started. 

What is SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central?

SuccessFactors Employee Central is an integrated suite of human capital management (HCM) applications. It’s used as a company’s HR system of record by integrating SuccessFactors’ core HCM applications, including Talent Management, Workforce Analytics, and Succession Planning software. And because the software is deployed in the cloud, your organization benefits from automatic updates and the ability to adapt to changing workforces without skipping a beat.

Components of SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central

Employee Central automates HR workflows to help you manage processes, as opposed to merely just transactions. Additionally, it gives you better insights into the HR side of your organization to improve strategic decision-making. Here are some of the key components of the solution: 

Automated Compliance

Keeping up with compliance at a local and global level can be a challenge, which is why Employee Central includes the latest compliance capabilities based on analysis of local regulations in more than 200 countries. With automated regulatory changes, it’s easier than ever for organizations to adapt to local laws, business practices, and statutory reporting requirements. And if you’re operating in a country that’s not currently localized, you can configure the solution to meet those needs.  

People Profile

The people profile functionality of Employee Central keeps track of all your important HR information—as well as country-specific requirements—for employees and contingent labor. This allows you to standardize HR processes for your global workforce no matter where they’re working. 

Global Benefits

SuccessFactors Employee Central Global Benefits helps organizations standardize benefits management, including insurance plans, pensions, reimbursements, and more. As is to be expected from an SAP product, it’s completely configurable based on your location and benefits program. (No one-size-fits-all technologies here!)

Time Management

Employee Central can also manage your employees’ time and attendance on the same platform. Supporting global companies, the solution takes local laws, corporate policies, and other aspects like holidays and specific business rules into account. The module is easy to use, and employees get access to their balances and information anytime, anywhere.

Robust Reporting

Employee Central gives you insights and dashboards across your entire workforce through robust reporting functionalities. After all, the better data you have, the smarter HR and management decisions you can make. (And it’s all done within the same platform.)
