Optimizing Core HR Processes with SAP SuccessFactors

SAP SuccessFactors is a cloud-based Human Resources Management software designed to help organizations manage their HR processes and employee data by providing a wide range of HR functionality, including Talent Management, Onboarding, Performance Management, Learning and Development, Compensation Management, and Workforce Analytics.

The SuccessFactors solution is built on a user-friendly and intuitive interface, making it easier to improve employee engagement and satisfaction, scale solutions to meet organizational needs, and eliminate the need for companies to manage their own hardware and software infrastructure.

HRIS elements in SuccessFactors help companies in any industry leverage the power of their own workforce to improve process efficiency, manage data more accurately, and enhance the employee experience in the long run.

The Main Module: Employee Central

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central is a comprehensive, easily-configurable Human Resource Management module included in the basic SuccessFactors solution. The Employee Central solution is available for customers in 100 countries, and it supports more than 170 different currencies across the globe to ensure SAP users have the functionality they need.

And, with a cloud-based HR management software like Employee Central, SuccessFactors users are enabled to support automation across business units, connect HR processes for a more consistent user experience, and improve customer satisfaction across the board.

Here are the main capabilities of the SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central solution…

Employee Self-Service

Employee Central offers advanced self-service capabilities that enable individual users to take control over their own experience and access the data and tasks they need wherever and whenever they need them.

With these self-service features, employees can leverage people profiles to keep track of valuable HR information, embedded localization to ensure compliance requirements are met, and intuitive accessibility features to complete important tasks across different devices.

Automated Compliance

The Employee Central module includes pre-built localization features and regularly-updated compliance management capabilities to help users stay up-to-date with changing regulations and ensure their operations are able to adapt if regulation changes do occur.

And, by providing localization support for more than 100 countries across the globe, Employee Central has the ability to help companies configure their SuccessFactors solutions to meet the current needs of their organization and evolve to stay current with new local laws, business practices, or statutory reporting requirements over time.

Organizational Management

With the capabilities provided by Employee Central, SAP SuccessFactors users are enabled to improve visibility across their organization and better model their organizational structure to meet the needs of their entire workforce.

Employee Central also offers embedded analytics and improved position management functionality to streamline recruiting and onboarding processes, improve the succession plan accuracy an efficiency, improve learning management strategies, and relieve administrative burdens to enhance workforce productivity.

Employee Benefits Administration

Managing employee benefits across a global workforce can get complicated without the right tools for the job. But, fortunately, Employee Central offers a Global Benefits solution with advanced management capabilities and a flexible framework to enable your organization to configure benefits processes to meet requirements in different states, countries, or regions.

With SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, your company can not only manage benefits information, including insurance plans, reimbursements, and allowances, but also centralize the administration and management of employee benefits to improve oversight and compliance across the entire organization.

Time Management

Accurate and efficient time and attendance management capabilities are essential in making sure employees are paid on-time and correctly for their hours worked.

Employee Central offers a comprehensive time and attendance management solution to help employees record their time, request time-off, manage attendance, and gain better insight into their hourly balances, premiums, overtime, and more. With this, managers can also leverage automatic calculation features to match recorded time and pay information with employee time profiles and ensure compliance with laws, regulations, and business policies.

Other Key Components of SuccessFactors

1) Employee Central Payroll

With its cloud-based nature and comprehensive payroll management capabilities, SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll provides companies with a unified and streamlined approach to payroll processing, improving accuracy and efficiency for employees.

From complex payroll calculations to deduction and tax processing, regulatory reporting, and more, Employee Central Payroll offers the functionality needed to process, run, and manage payroll in the most efficient and effective way possible across your entire enterprise.

2) Employee Central Service Center

Employee Central’s Service Center is a fully-functional, cloud-based service center that helps companies provide better support for employees and improve customer service across the entire workforce.

With the Service Center, SuccessFactors users are enabled to track, prioritize, and assign cases to individuals for resolution, leverage a functional self-service portal to access information and complete tasks more efficiently, and store and share HR-related information between employees and teams through the built-in knowledge management system.

3) Performance Management

The SuccessFactors Performance Management application helps companies align, develop, and manage workforce performance in a way that motivates employees to be their best and facilitates better employee retention in the long run.

The solution provides core capabilities, including performance reviews, goal setting and alignment strategies, and continuous feedback loops, to define employee objectives across teams and ensure they have the resources needed to perform as expected.

4) Recruiting and Onboarding

Attracting, hiring, and retaining top-tier talent is an essential function in any organization. But, too often, underperforming recruiting management solutions and unorganized onboarding processes prevent organizations from gaining (or keeping) the best talent.

With SuccessFactors, companies are enabled to leverage functional recruiting tools to manage job postings and source candidates, build relationships with potential new hires, conduct onboarding processes in a single solution, and support new and existing employees throughout the entire hiring process.

5) Learning Management

SuccessFactors Learning and Development provides the tools and resources needed for companies to develop, manage, and deliver employee learning and development programs to facilitate a collaborative work environment and encourage employees to continue learning.

From creating personalized training content to building individual learning paths, assessing employee performance through competency models, providing targeted training, and more, SuccessFactors allows employees to take control of their experience and enables them to perform at their best, no matter what.
