New Josh Bersin Company Report Explores SAP-Specific HCM Best Practices
OAKLAND, Calif., Dec. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Josh Bersin Company, a research and advisory company focused on HR and workforce strategies, has published a new high-impact report, Best Practices for HCM Excellence: The SAP SuccessFactors Edition, that showcases the best current global examples of HCM excellence using the SAP SuccessFactors Human Experience Management (HXM) Suite. By building on earlier research, the tactical and strategic methodology shared in this new report also allows for broad applicability beyond SAP SuccessFactors technology users.
HCM technology, due to its cost and potential business impact, is one of the single largest investments an organization can make, yet many companies don't fully realize its expected value. This is because they are not using the platforms to their full potential, and/or their HR-related technology systems are too fragmented or limited in scope, restricting overall employee/workplace visibility, say Josh Bersin Company experts.
Although many HCM best practices are determined at a strategic level, the role of technology can have a strong bearing on employers' awareness of the opportunities for improvement, the particular issues holding them back, and the levers for success in their respective organization.
The third of three platform-specific reports on the challenge but also immense opportunity of HCM tech, Josh Bersin Company's latest research analyzes leading examples of Human Capital Management transformation by the likes of Allianz and Microsoft using SAP SuccessFactors. Previous reports in the series have taken a similar approach to HCM excellence on the Workday and Oracle platforms, respectively.
By first examining Workday implementations, Josh Bersin Company defined what HCM excellence looks like. This framework was then used throughout all the studies, and now forms a reference point against which business leaders can think about their implementations. Through the Oracle study, Josh Bersin Company dived deeper into how success is achieved, harnessing a range of leading case studies to explain how to achieve excellence.p>Now, the deep dive into leading SAP SuccessFactors use cases reveals how:
Critically, the report notes that the most successful companies do not treat their HCM implementation simply as a technology deployment. Rather, they apply their HCM platform more strategically to enable business transformation and an irresistible employee experience.
Other key findings include:

"These latest insights, especially when combined with the full picture of the earlier HCM Excellence series installments, are very timely, particularly as all kinds of companies grapple with talent challenges and look to do something different—something which sets them apart."
The new report, Best Practices for HCM Excellence: The SAP SuccessFactors Edition, is available to Josh Bersin Company corporate members from December 1. The research will also become part of the comprehensive HCM Best Practices collection which provides detailed guidance for companies that are considering investing in (or have already invested in) HCM technology as a cloud solution.
About the research
Best Practices for HCM Excellence: The SAP SuccessFactors Edition is the result of an in-depth collaboration with an expert team of SAP SuccessFactors system integrators at Tata Consultancy Services (TCS). The guide is based on many hours of discussions with CHROs, HR technology leaders, EX leaders, and executives in The Josh Bersin Company's Big Reset working groups, understanding the practices and approaches of more than 350 companies internationally. Based on these discussions and validated by many experts from various companies, the Josh Bersin Company researchers established a common framework and approach for HCM and developed a maturity model to guide companies in their HCM journeys.
This research, focused on SAP SuccessFactors, features 10 companies with extremely successful SAP SuccessFactors transformations and incorporated key lessons learned from HCM implementation experts. The interviews did not set out to understand the technical capabilities or features of SAP SuccessFactors, but rather the strategic goals driving the implementation and ongoing operations, as well as the tactical actions taken during every stage of implementation projects, and beyond.
