SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central is the Heart of Talent

As a leading core HR solution, SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central has over 4,000 customers around the globe. In addition to extensive HRIS capabilities, it can also serve as the “heart” of the SAP SuccessFactors talent suite, which includes solutions for recruiting, onboarding, compensation, succession and development, learning, etc.

Regardless of vendor, all talent management solutions require data from a core HR solution. One of the strengths of the SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite is that it is designed to work with ANY Core HR solution . . . but the suite works even better with SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central. Let’s examine how.

There are THREE key benefits that SAP SuccessFactors talent customers gain by leveraging SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central as their core HR platform:

Integration:

SAP SuccessFactors talent management solutions require data from a core HR system. This may include employee name ID, job title, position, company, location, manager, etc. Customers without SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central must integrate this employee demographic data into their talent solutions – and keep it current with regular updates.

To simplify integration, some SAP SuccessFactors talent solutions share common elements with SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central. For example, SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting and SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding share the same “foundation objects”– business unit, division, department, location, etc. – which eliminate the need for manual imports and updates. In addition, if an SAP SuccessFactors Succession & Development customer implements SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, existing positions can be leveraged for Core HR. Similarly, if new positions are created in SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, they can also be made available for succession plans.

In other cases, the talent management suite needs to update the core HR system. For example, SAP SuccessFactors Compensation may be used to determine pay increases and bonuses. With SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central as the core HR system, this information is shared automatically and without the need for complex integrations and manual updates.

User Interface:

SAP SuccessFactors talent solutions have an intuitive, consumer-grade user experience. This holds true for SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central as well. If SAP SuccessFactors solutions are already deployed across the enterprise, end-user adoption of SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central can be simple and straight-forward.

Employees, managers, and administrators will already have log-ons and be familiar with the interface. In addition to using SAP SuccessFactors for talent related tasks, they will be able to access self-service and advanced HR capabilities – even when using the mobile app!
