People are at the heart of every successful organization.

Involved and motivated people are driven to be successful and get the most out of their jobs. Engagement happens when employees contribute to business goals and receive support, training and acknowledgement. For any organisation – and specifically the HR department – employee engagement is a key factor that cannot be ignored.

SAP SuccessFactors is the go-to cloud solution for helping to deliver all the HR processes that, together, will boost employee engagement and performance. Each solution from SAP SuccessFactors can be used separately or together and allow you to take advantage of seamless talent processes, like pay-for-performance programs and learning and development planning.

From hire to retire: align, optimise and accelerate the talent in your business

People make all the difference in any organisation. With the right people focussed on the right goals, a business can unlock its full potential. Poor, unfocused execution holds back too many companies. Too few employees are working in a way that really advances your business strategy.

But the right tool with the right approach implemented with the right partner should bring you the HR transformation you’re looking for. A simple, user friendly and yet powerful solution for managing employee performance and development can make a huge difference to the actual added value that your employees can deliver.

SAP SuccessFactors makes performance management a tangible, high value activity

Unlike other HRIS vendors, SAP SuccessFactors offers more than process efficiency and transactional cost savings. Both large enterprise and small to mid-size businesses can use the full suite of talent solutions, core HR, collaboration, and workforce analytics to improve productivity and engage, retain, and motivate employees. And, as an SAP company with world-class technology, SuccessFactors is positioned to provide end-to-end integrated business solutions that address the biggest business challenges companies face. SOA People can help you first-hand to:
