Management requires a delicate balance between achieving business goals and meeting the needs of the workforce. Today's dynamic business environments call for a quick and seamless transition from traditional processes to a technology-first approach. Moreover, the impact of technology-based advancements is so far-reaching that it has created business innovation in areas such as management, sales, operations and many other routine processes.
With HR cloud technology, organisations can achieve business success while improving the overall employee experience. Besides this, managers can automate processes such as performance reviews, timesheet submissions, payroll, and vacation requests. One of the most widely used HR systems, SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central provides flexible, global, core HR functionality to help meet the expectations of the people and the needs of the business. Now that we understand the significance of workforce management software, let us look at some of the features that Employee Central provides:
The 21st-century workforce is truly international, and with employees and clients operating from all over the globe, communication and compliance can act as an obstacle to the smooth functioning of a company.
SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central provides localisation support and updates its compliance after a thorough inspection of the local regulations. HR automation allows for local experts in up to 100 countries to work in coordination with government authorities, as well as, legal advisors to ensure accuracy. The software also gives customers that are not localised currently, the freedom to customise solutions to meet their unique needs.
SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central acts as the singular time management tool across departments, hierarchies and regions. It is designed to accommodate the needs of a global organisation and includes features like country-specific fields, attendance, time off and holiday calendars. It empowers the employees with the tools to record their absence, and attendance, at any time, from anywhere, giving them a clear picture of their overtime and premiums. The real-time updates and automated calculations give HR managers comprehensive reports, without them having to spend hours tracking an employee’s every move.
While employing robust teams can be an asset to any company, keeping track of the overall functioning is that much more challenging. Even with HR automation, having to monitor multiple teams and departments can create a scope for error. With simple tools like a dashboard, HRs have access to all the information in one place and can skim through the status of various projects, reports, employee attendance, etc.
Employee Central gives management and the HRs exhaustive insights to help them keep up with the latest developments in the firm and the morale of their employees. SAP SuccessFactors also recognises that certain updates require context to be analysed thoroughly, which is why Employee Central provides users with graphical dashboards and embedded role-based reporting. These minute details can also be accessed without having to navigate out of your currently running tasks.
Highly engaged employees make for a more productive workforce, they tend to align themselves with the organisation’s goals and act in its best interest. However, more often than not, companies tend to ignore workforce engagement leading them down a cycle of increasing attrition rates.
SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central has been developed with the awareness that workforce engagement is a critical part of the management strategy. Yet another reason to choose a cloud-based HR software like Employee Central is that it can be used in parallel with other SAP SuccessFactors solutions. The Employee Central Payroll allows embedded localisation for more than 45 countries, the features are integrated with time management, core HR and global benefit systems that are available on Employee Central. The Employee Central Service Centre gives personalised HR policy information and it makes sure that employees can reach out to the HR manager using tickets, phone calls, or even through email.
Since HR processes are applied in the everyday functioning of a company regardless of the size and type of business, it demands a high level of coordination. This also means that various other departments and functions are dependent on critical information from the HR department. To make sure that this back and forth happens without any hiccups, Employee Central can be used in collaboration with other SAP solutions or third-party products. These capabilities allow for processes to be cost-effective, and less tedious and they also reduce the risk of errors. People do not need to waste their time integrating and aligning a variety of different products to their HR management software, instead, they can focus on doing their job efficiently.
The benefits of a cloud-based HR system cannot be overstated in today’s working world! It not only improves collaboration and makes accessing data a smooth ride, but the cloud can also store and back-up data in an entirely time-efficient manner. It provides all the necessary features required to power an expanding modern workforce all within one platform.
