SAP SuccessFactors | Contactless Recruiting Process

A Peep into the Contactless Recruiting Process | SAP SuccessFactors

Contactless Recruiting Process…

I’ve learned over the years that, when you have really good people, you don’t have to baby them. By expecting them to do great things, you can get them to do great things.
– Steve Jobs –

Recruiting; the term has a lot of possibilities in the HR world and is integrated into several components that have been explored and are being explored for decades. The concept of Recruiting has been continuously modernized in recent years, taking different aspects and widening its spectrum from Headhunting, Talent Acquisition, Hiring, Talent Attrition, etc. Yet we don’t seem to be seeing an end to this progress. Recruiting will keep on uncovering new horizons due to the on-going pandemic situation.

Let us observe how the entire recruiting industry is recovering and exploring different paths to virtually connect and recruit the right talent to the organization in this pandemic.

Considering the early time when Recruiting used to be sourcing through agencies and newspapers, that later got taken over by social media platforms like LinkedIn and other Job boards, while the screening or shortlisting of candidates remained the same. We surely would not see people waiting outside of any organizations in queue for recruitment drives whilst the urge of getting the job remains the same through a virtual world, irrespective of the country, its people, industry and domain.

The face to face interview was mandatory once, has been completely replaced by the leading automated HR systems. SaaS product like SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management is one of the leading practice applications emerging every day to meet the HR and candidates expectations and provide the smoothest solutions to the customers. When it comes to Background verification, recruiting systems provides the best standard as well as customized solutions by making the recruiter’s task easy. A recruiter adopting these emerging AI based systems in short span of time is certainly giving their organization an edge Vis a Vis their competitors. Moreover, releasing offers to the candidates, which involves several approvals and negotiation between candidate and talent heads, are key aspects of a recruiting process and are tackled by SAP solutions as well as computations of salary components.

In this current situation where world is looking for contactless communication, such applications have revolutionized the recruiting industry with automated and AI based recruiting systems by covering the entire process from candidate application to releasing the offers in a contactless manner without compromising the quality of the process.

We look forward to discover the fascinating developments touching the recruitment industry resulting in continuous improvements on people’s lives!

Welcome the new Recruitment norms!

Beside Every User-Code Stands Name

Beside Every User-Code Stands Name

This blog post is part of a series called “Tip of the Week”. This week, we’ll introduce a feature that helps run the business better when working with user-names.

Remember when you started a new job? What happened in one of the very first days? Right! You got your work e-mail address and access credentials to the various systems. Account and user names, passwords etc. Could be that your user is the same as your name but this is not always the case… each business has its own policy & preferences. So even if you learned by heart your credentials, it might not be that obvious that jd_02 is the user code created for John Doe who just joined the company together with four other new employees.

To increase transparency and prevent confusion SAP Business One displays the user name alongside the user code in License Administration and Add-on Administration windows:

This way, when assigning licenses or add-ons, the super user can ensure that the assignments are done for the relevant users. To improve usability, the list can be sorted by either user code or user name.

Available in SAP Business One 10.0 and SAP Business One 10.0, version for SAP HANA.

Deactivate Irrelevant UoMs in a Group

Deactivate Irrelevant UoMs in a Group

This blog post is part of a series called “Tip of the Week”.

Thorough preparation can be lengthy and not very exciting – but it pays off. It ensures smooth and efficient ongoing work. When all the definitions, settings, and initial data are made in advance, work flies! But even perfect prep work should be refreshed from time to time – new definitions should be made and existing ones may become irrelevant for short or long term.

This is why SAP Business One enables you to set irrelevant UoMs included in UoM groups as inactive:

By default, all UoMs within a group are set to “Active”. When deselecting the checkbox, the given UoM becomes inactive, and will not appear in any dropdown list of Unit of Measures, and will be hidden in Item Master Data respective sub-windows – i.e. Bar Codes sub-window, Purchasing tab > Purchasing UoM Code, and Sales tab > Sales UoM Code.

Available in SAP Business One 10.0 PL01 and SAP Business One 10.0, version for SAP HANA PL01.

SAP Performance and Goal Management

Continuous Performance Follow-ups | SAP PMGM

SAP Performance & Goal Management (PMGM)

Today, we are in January. You asked your employees and managers to add their goals for the current year. They did a meeting and they agreed on their goals. Later, they added them to a file and threw the file away.

In a blink of an eye, we are in December. What happened to these goals? Were they achieved? The employees and managers set another meeting to discuss these goals and evaluate the employees’ performance throughout the year, but it turns out that many of these goals have changed due to business needs, or maybe, some of the employees weren’t even working to achieve the preset goals.
It is clear in every organization that the employees’ personal goals should align with the company’s overall objectives. Also, continuous follow-ups must be obtained in order to make sure that the employees are working to achieve their goals in an effective manner.

SAP Performance & Goal Management (PMGM) helps in improving employees’ performance through thorough goal setting, ongoing discussions, and continuous follow-ups. It helps the managers get an early visibility into what their employees are working on and enables them to provide their employees with timely support to align their goals and improve their performance.

Why SAP PMGM you ask?

To begin with, SAP provides a mobile application that is available on both App Store & Google Play that is accessible anytime and anywhere. Employees and managers can access this application to add their goals and evaluate their performance anytime at any day without being present at the office.

Add to that, SAP PMGM supports the use of Continuous Performance Management, which allows employees to add their activities and achievements, and link them to their goals. Also, it provides the ability to set one-to-one meetings with their managers to further discuss their goals and make sure they are on the right track. Further to that, employees can either give feedback to their colleagues or request feedback from them. Once received, employees can manage all their feedback from one single place, and optionally link them to their activities or achievements.

When it comes to goal setting, SAP PMGM supports the use of common goals that multiple individuals, as a team, can achieve together. Also, it provides a goal library with more than 500 ready-to-use, role-specific goals based on research and industry experience.

In addition to the regular performance evaluation that involves both the ratings of the employees and the managers, SAP PMGM supports the use of the 360 feedback. The employee can be evaluated by his/ her peers, direct reports, managers, or any other external participants based on predefined questions. An important feature of the 360 feedback is that the person evaluating the employee can be anonymous; this means that the employee won’t have any visibility on the name of the evaluators.

SAP PMGM also supports the use of  a performance bell-curve where employees’ ratings are distributed based on the rating scales on a graphical representation. Authorized personnel can compare the actual ratings with the expected rating in a management calibration session.

In short, with SAP SuccessFactors PMGM, you can make sure that your employees are achieving their goals efficiently through continuous follow-ups and accurate performance assessment.
