Nowadays, human resources (HR) departments need more than traditional tools to thrive. With employees losing between one to five hours of productivity per week dealing with IT issues, organizations need to embrace data-driven insights, artificial intelligence (AI), and machine learning for a more holistic approach to manage the employee lifecycle. An intuitive and efficient HR system is an employee’s front door to the entity and subtle reminder that the employee is in the right place.

Modernizing your HR function is crucial to attracting and retaining top talent, and for nurturing a culture of continuous improvement. This especially applies to public sector where regulatory knowledge is crucial and specific.

SAP’s SuccessFactors Human Experience Management (HXM) Suite is a cloud-based human capital management (HCM) system, with integration to SAP’s powerful public sector S/4 finance offering. HXM focuses on employee experiences and empowers HR teams in four crucial areas.

1.    Employee experience management

Improving the employee experience is key to creating a healthy and productive workplace. SAP SuccessFactors HXM provides tools for gathering real-time feedback, conducting employee surveys, and measuring employee sentiment. Gain insights into your employees’ experience and make better informed data-driven decisions. Business leaders must use the confluence of people, data, and technology to attract the best candidates, keep them happy, increase productivity, and enhance retention rates. But to deliver these experiences for your users means investing in an intelligent workforce to boost employee engagement. It’s essential to deliver modern experiences in areas such as recruiting and onboarding to retain top talent for public sector organizations.

2.    Core HR and payroll 

The foundation of SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite is its core HR and payroll capabilities. It simplifies the management of employee records, payroll processing, time and attendance, self-service HR, and compliance. You can automate routine tasks, streamline processes, and ensure data accuracy. This reduces the administrative burden and allows your HR team to focus on more strategic initiatives.

  • SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll ensures that employees are paid on time and accurately, working in harmony with Employee Central.

Other areas include SAP SuccessFactors Time Tracking, Work Zone, and Document Management Core by Open Text.

3.    Talent management 

The suite offers a comprehensive set of talent management tools for recruitment, onboarding, performance management, learning and development, and planning. Organizations can identify and nurture top talent, align employee goals with business objectives, and track performance effectively. Using intelligent technologies, these talent management tools can assist HR in matching candidates with job openings, predicting turnover, and identifying skills gaps. Your talent management solution will help ensure that your system is up to date, allowing you to maximize the value of your people and create a welcoming culture.
