HR departments in small to medium-size businesses are actively pursuing efforts to automate processes, reduce costs, and achieve compliance.
Aligning these efforts will help drive people decisions that grow the business. However, most of today’s HRIS solutions serve merely as filing cabinets for employee record keeping — with no business impact. Siloed from talent data, they prevent companies from making workforce decisions based on a 360-degree view of each employee.
A New Approach to Core HR — SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central
SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central is a single platform that provides small to medium-size businesses greater visibility into their workforce. It provides support for any combination of business units, geographies, or cost centers to model and manage any workforce. With this platform, HR can quickly integrate workforce data from the SAP SuccessFactors BizX Suite of talent solutions as well as third-party systems, such as payroll, benefits, and time and attendance. And the complicated tasks of error-free reporting and industry compliance are much simpler, because all user actions are saved and easily accessible through point-in-time reporting and clear audit trails.
Designed with Employee and Manager Self-service Capability
Employees can use self-service to maintain rich information about their skills, competencies, interests, and accomplishments. Managers can use self-service to update information about employees on their team, such as promotions, salary changes, terminations, and more. With this direct access, managers can make decisions quickly; HR, in turn, is free from the administrative burden of managing employee information. All manager self-service capabilities are supported on the SAP SuccessFactors BizX mobile app.
Integrates with Talent Management Solutions
HR can make more effective workforce decisions by using SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central to align its talent strategy. HR can link people data to SAP SuccessFactors’ talent management solutions for performance management, goal management, workforce development, compensation, learning, recruiting and social collaboration. By accessing employee profile, talent, and Core HR information, companies can make more informed people decisions — for example, setting performance goals that are aligned with employee strengths and interests.
Integrates with Third-party Systems
SAP SuccessFactors’ cloud-based integration platform guarantees fast and cost-effective integration between SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central and any system, including payroll, benefits, and time management solutions.
Delivers Workforce Reporting Easily
Because SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central keeps all workforce data in one place, it’s easy for HR to access talent information. HR can generate any number of standard reports, including headcount summary, EEO classifications, pay history, compensation adjustments, and employee birthdays. The ability to run ad hoc reports gives HR and business leaders added agility to make more effective talent and investment decisions.
Runs in the Cloud
Managing workforce data in the cloud increases HR’s ability to make decisions quickly and efficiently. HR has access to clean, accurate, and up-to-date information in a system that can easily grow and evolve with the company. No longer relying on IT for dedicated workforce data, HR can focus on the information that’s important to the business’s talent strategy. Additionally, SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central is a pure SaaS-based solution that offers cloud economics — which means a much lower total cost of ownership TCO) than on premise Core HR solutions.
While core HR is still the reliable system of record, the opportunity for tomorrow is to plan the right business strategy and put the right structures in place for execution – strong and agile enough to meet market changes. SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central provides comprehensive, integrated, searchable people and organizational information. With position management and organizational charting, you are able to create the right structures for an agile organization that supports departments, teams, and individuals. Smart automation, with intelligent services and HR workflows across system and business functions, enables you to manage processes, not just transactions.
Manage and Grow Across Boundaries
Some aspects of globalization are well established, such as translating content and supporting time zones, calendars, and currencies. However, keeping up with constantly changing local laws is much more challenging. SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central is a complete, cloud-based, core HR solution that facilitates regulatory and legal compliance. Automatic updates due to changes in regulations enable you to comply with current business practices, legal requirements, and statutory reporting.
