Turboboost digital HR: Webinars from Cloud Payroll to Candidate Experience
linkedin
May 25, 2020
Adessa celebrates the fact that a solid foundation for your digital HR strategy and Human Experience Management can actually be fun and engaging with a real fireworks of webinars. The spotlight is on the basics that most of us have in our minds in the box labelled "not very exciting, but must work". I agree with the second part, but beg to differ on the first one, because the foundation of your digital HR strategy can also be engaging and provide a great user experience. Indeed, it has to do so, because for digital transformation to succeed, user adoption and buy-in are paramount. Yes, we are talking about

Working from Home: an Opportunity at Risk of Being Reduced to a Cost Cutting Exercise
linkedin
May 02, 2020
Working from home will and should become more common even when the Corona pandemic is over - I have very little doubt about this. But organisations using it as a convenient cost cutting exercise without looking at the big picture, will do so at their own peril.

Leverage Qualtrics and SAP SuccessFactors to maximise use of X-Data and O-Data to drive improvement
The Human Experience journey along the talent life cycle starts with Recruiting and Onboarding. This experience not only needs to be positive, but also consistent. It’s no good creating expectations during the candidate journey that clash with reality later on.

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central: Echter Mehrwert statt technischer Pflichtübung

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central (EC) wird oft reduziert auf seine Rolle als Fundament für die anderen, “aufregenden” Module. Das ist natürlich ein wichtiges Element, aber bei weitem nicht alles.

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central: Get Business Value, not just a Tech Platform

SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central (EC) is often reduced to the foundation needed to make best use of the other, more "exciting" SuccessFactors modules. Whilst this is an important aspect, it's far from being the full picture.

360 Feedback: using Qualtrics EX or SAP SuccessFactors PMGM
linkedin
November 06, 2019
Apparently, Qualtrics Employee Experience and SAP SuccessFactors Performance & Goals have a competing offering for 360 Feedback. So, given the choice, which one is better? From an isolated perspective, there is very little going for the SuccessFactors 360 in this context. The Qualtrics solutions beats it hands-down on User Experience, flexibility and analytics.

Qualtrics Integration with SAP SuccessFactors: State of the Union
Adessa Group
September 18, 2019
The Union between SAP and Qualtrics is now 8 months old, so where does it stand from a SuccessFactors Integration point of view? And what can we do to combine Qualtrics with SuccessFactors data and events.
In a nutshell: even now, it’s early days, but there is a credible and comprehensive plan for integrations in place starting 2020. This leaves short and midterm solutions to be deployed by SAP Qualtrics Partners, such as Adessa Group.

June 03, 2019
Whilst everybody is talking about combining operational HR Data (O-Data) from SAP SuccessFactors and SAP HCM with Employee Experience Data (X-Data) from Qualtrics, most people still wait (aka: do nothing) for a big hairy analytics tool to do everything or analyse (aka: do nothing) the integration options.

Combine X-Data & O-Data Today with SAP SuccessFactors & Qualtrics EX

May 27, 2019
Ever since Qualtrics joined the SAP Universe we are hearing that combining “X-Data” (Experience Data) and “O-Data” (Operational Data) is the way forward. From an HR point of view, X-Data would be Employee Experience data (or Candidate Experience data) from Qualtrics EX and O-Data would come from SAP SuccessFactors or SAP HCM.

What the Armed Forces Taught me About SAP HCM Migration to the Cloud
Linkedin
April 03, 2019
As with any journey, transformational or otherwise, knowing your starting point is crucial for your Cloud HR migration journey. It seems this holds particularly true for organisations starting with an SAP HCM solution, mainly because the typical(!) SAP HCM customer is very different from a typical(!) first generation cloud customer (SuccessFactors or others). Being used to a very comprehensive system like SAP HCM that allows customers huge flexibility (often more than is good for them) creates a peculiar starting position regarding the level of automation, process variation, tolerance for exceptions, data complexity as well as expectations and mindsets.

Do we Even Know, What Really Tough Change Feels Like?
Linkedin
December 07, 2018
Maybe the headline is slightly provocative. It's meant to be - for "us": employees and line managers working in Europe, North America, Japan and other rich coutries. Of course I'm fully aware that managing change in large organisations can be very hard. The pace of change makes it challenging for many individuals to adopt and there is huge pressure contributing to the increasing number of mental illness cases (although, as often as not, the pressure comes from resistance against change even more than from the change itsself). In any case: I'm the first person to acknowledge that the ongoing change inside as well as outside the workplace is very challenging for many of us, even in the "rich world". However, last month, I met some people, who've mastered positive change on a completely different scale.

There is a Workforce Side to Digital Transformation and You Ignore it a Your Peril
SAP Community Network
May 25, 2016
There is huge change ahead and it’s just as well that your business strategy is recognising that and finds ways to exploit rather than suffer from it. However, the old truism “Culture eats strategy for breakfast” is still just that: true.

If Digital Transformation is at the heart of your business strategy, but not at the heart of your culture – or, worse: opposed by your culture, then you’ll be in troubled waters soon – or in the doldrums.

Mastering HR Management with SAP ERP HCM
SAP PRESS
January 01, 2009
This new updated and enhanced edition of the definitive guide to SAP ERP HCM, is written to teach HR managers, functional users, project managers, and others working with HCM about how to use and customize it throughout the entire HR process from recruiting personnel to transferring HR data to accounting – all based on the current release SAP ERP 6.0. This is the one resource the HR team needs to get the most out of their HCM implementation.

Each chapter covers one HCM component and deals with the respective steps in the HR process from recruiting to personnel controlling. For each component related business principles, case studies, best practices, customizing steps, integration aspects, and role concepts are presented. And many new important and timely additions have been added to this third edition, including e-Recruiting, internal monitoring systems (think of Sarbanes-Oxley-Act), and the continuous integration of SAP NetWeaver Portal.
