SAP SuccessFactors for 28 Countries and More Than 10,000 Employees
Change Process in the HR Department – Capable Partner across Borders
The decision to go with the cloud solution means that we are having to set up global processes. The project is being managed from Germany, the Nordics and Turkey to enable five modules to be rolled out gradually in 28 countries as part of the SAP HXM SuccessFactors Suite. With the aim to improve data access and transparency throughout the organization, a change community has been established to coordinate the project within set time frame. While the core team outlines the strategies and set the direction, local coordinators will pass information on to each of the countries and initiate the implementation of local adjustments. Based on proven Best Practices and a targeted project planning, the first go-lives were already announced back in 2019.
3 Phases of Go-live: HR Admins, Managers, All Employees
To ensure a smooth introduction along with a clean data transfer to the new system, the processes were closely scrutinized in-house to lay the groundwork for implementing the solution worldwide. The go-lives of the modules Employee Central and Onboarding were spread across three phases, so that the whole company could ultimately experience the benefits: Starting with HR admins, followed by managers and culminating in all employees. The benefits range from a continuously updated overview of the organization structure to straightforward access to accurate reports and the use of smart workflows for automated communication processes. The key word is Self-Service, meaning that employees can keep their personal data up to date independently, which improves data quality significantly. These two modules were put into operation for locations in 28 countries according to schedule back in 2019.
Towards the Future – With Recruiting, Learning and Performance & Goals
The plan to implement five modules globally will be fulfilled within the next three years. In this case, the next step includes the rollout of the modules Recruiting, Learning and Performance & Goals. This means that all countries will soon not only benefiting from system-based talent identification processes, but also direct communication channels and seamless access to the global internal career page. Working objectives can be tracked in real time and employees get consistently feedback on their strengths and development areas. In addition, E-Learnings open the path to new career chances and thanks to the in-house developed Skill Database transparency of employee competences for an efficient resource planning is increased on a global level. There are truly no limits to the digital future!
