Reading time: 5 mins

The world of recruiting has changed significantly since the beginning of 2020. Companies and candidates have different needs, and the strategies for hiring are changing. How should companies think about talent attraction during and after this unprecedented time?
Moving your HCM technology to the cloud presents an opportunity to digitally transform your business. This informative session will examine the business drivers that are leading companies to adopt SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central and Employee Central Payroll – discussing the benefits and results those companies are achieving as a result of this process and technology transformation. You will hear best practices, lessons learned, and actionable advice to help you and your organization more effectively plan for and implement SAP SuccessFactors.
A unique and inspiring aspect of the SAP SuccessFactors organization is that the three individuals at the helm of product direction and delivery are women. What’s even more impressive is the influence these women are having on their customers and employees. President Jill Popelka, Senior Vice President Meg Bear, who runs the Product, Engineering, and Operations organization, and Senior Vice President Amy Wilson, who heads the Products and Design team, work in harmony as a dynamic, determined, talented, and accomplished team achieving impressive results.
Once treated as an afterthought or simply as a compliance necessity, the job description is now seen as strategic content (much more than a document) that, when managed properly, can support key HR processes by helping to set clear hiring requirements and performance expectations and by providing critical infrastructure for workforce planning, succession planning, leadership and career development. To achieve this, organizations are taking a fresh look at how job descriptions are written, how they are managed, and how they integrate with both core HR technology and the entire talent management suite.
Bethany Johnston, Northwest Pipe’s (NWP) Corporate HRIS Manager, says that the work she contributed to an implementation project completed in 2019 — which helped the company increase its visibility into labor scheduling, provide real-time workforce data to the finance team, and improve decision making with data analysis — led to her progression from an HR and safety manager in the field to her current role. Read NWP’s full case study story, “Strategic Workforce Management Drives Agile Decision Making at Northwest Pipe: How One National Manufacturer Improved Job Efficiency and Continues to Deliver On a 50+ Year Commitment to Quality,” which appears online and in the Q4 edition of SAPinsider Magazine.
Technology is changing not only the future of work, but the workforce itself. Hiring models have moved from planning for a permanent workforce to instead hiring more contingent workers; scheduling has become more flexible in response to employee demands for work-life balance; and most recently, the global pandemic has put an increased focus on distributed workforces. As a result of this increased variability, it is essential for organizations to ensure effective staffing, forecasting, scheduling, and real-time adjustments to optimize productivity. Concentrating on strategic workforce management is one way that SAP customers, such as Northwest Pipe Company, are adapting to the future of work.
Work today doesn’t look like it did a year ago. While the essence of work is still the same — talent drives the business — in today’s world, how can companies keep their talent exceptional? The key to achieving this is the main takeaway from today’s opening keynote of SuccessConnect 2020 — organizations need to consider employees’ feeling, enable them to connect with one another, and provide the opportunities, learning, and development so they can be the best they can be.
