SuccessFactors was acquired by SAP in 2011 and is a cloud-based suite that manages all aspects of core HR and payroll, talent management, employee experience management and HR Analytics & Workforce Planning. It is an HR solution system that puts employees first. 

Whether you are just starting out in your career or thinking about switching from another system, these reasons are sure to help you take a step in the right direction.  

200 million users in over 200 countries and territories worldwide 

SuccessFactors is big! The numbers don’t lie. As a platform it has nearly four times more users than other big cloud-based systems. With it being so successful and leading the way in revolutionising the cloud-based HCM platform, SuccessFactors will only get bigger and better – who wouldn’t want to be part of that?!  

Brand established with decades of experience 

In contrast to others, SAP has half a century of experience within HR systems. They have grown with technology, taken chances along the way, and become an established brand within the ecosystem. SAP are the matriarch of all HR systems, the others are just starting out compared to them, so working for a company that leads the way would be wonderful experience to have. 

Plenty of training and certification 

Access to SAP training and certification is much easier than other systems. While others require you to work for a partner to get certified, SAP is great for people who want to do so in their spare time to improve their skills. This is also beneficial for people just starting out, with training so readily available it gives the opportunity to individuals who may not have the means to upskill normally. 

Have a look at the SAP website to see what they can offer:  

Career opportunities 

While the salary side of things is in line with other HCM systems, the opportunity to really expand your career within SuccessFactors is unstoppable. With such an established brand, where many companies use their system, it is a sea of opportunity!

I work for an HCM competitor, is it easy to cross-train? 

Of course! It would not be a problem at all. It goes without saying, not all systems are the same but the fact that you have experience within another system gives you the basics and builds on your existing skills from there.  

I’m just starting out in my career, is SuccessFactors easy to get in to? 

As mentioned earlier, it is easy to access SuccessFactors training and certification. However, I would advise you to find a company that is hiring junior members for their team. Although access to home training is great, nothing beats practical learning! 

So, there you have it, 5 reasons to take the next step into a career in SuccessFactors. There is something for everyone, from experienced people wanting a change in direction to someone who wants to kick start their career within Technology.
