MAN is preparing for the future of work: digital processes and automated workflows based on SAP HCM processes and forms are professionalizing position controlling in the truck and bus division. Paper-based forms and Excel lists are now a thing of the past.
Whether or not it's cloud or not cloud, that's by no means the question when it comes to using SAP SuccessFactors. The combination of on-premise and cloud systems is often the best compromise. And there are various ways to use SAP SuccessFactors in combination with SAP ERP HCM. So the question is more likely to be: How much cloud do you want?
For Max Bögl, based in Sengenthal, Bavaria, the continuous development of its employees has been important for many years, as it represents a significant success factor for the company. However, the paper-based processes proved to be a constraint. Since the SAP Learning Solution was introduced, the HR managers' tasks have been simplified and the training courses themselves have been gaining popularity.
A NEW IT TOOL FOR GLOBAL COMPENSATION & BENEFIT MANAGEMENT
Especially companies with sites in several countries need an appropriate IT solution for a professional compensation management. By means of this solution, the transparency and quality of their own HR data for the Compensation & Benefit division as well as the efficiency of the associated HR processes can be ensured across the group. The rule here is, the size of the company increases the complexity of the HR management requirements. The Salzburg-based industrial group Benteler International AG with sites in 40 countries has taken up this challenge.

BETTER TRAINING THROUGH SAP LEARNING SOLUTION
The Max Bögl Group, based in Sengenthal, Bavaria, has been dedicated to continuous training of their employees for quite some time. However, time-consuming paper-based processes often cause delays.

SAP HCM HEALTH CHECK: HR SOFTWARE UNDER REVIEW
"How well is our HR software prepared for future requirements?" This is a question that is likely to bother many companies. projekt0708' s customer Tamedia, a Swiss media group, discovered this in a "Health Check" with our support.
INDIVIDUAL COMPENSATION MANAGEMENT
The introduction of Enterprise Compensation Management (ECM) is a challenging task for many companies due to the high regulatory and security requirements for compensation and the resulting low error tolerance - especially if existing individual tools for the calculation of specific compensation elements have to be transferred as well. The investment company Union Investment has opted for SAP ECM. The successful implementation proves: Their decision was right.
TECHNICAL CONCEPTION AS BASIS FOR SUCCESSFUL IT SUPPORT
When an outdated software solution needs to be replaced, many companies hastily start an implementation project and then wonder why the new software does not meet their expectations. The Ingolstadt Hospital took the first step before this actually second one and by doing so laid the foundation for a modern HR information system.

RECRUITING IN FAR EAST
As part of their recruiting activities, internationally operating companies use local online job platforms to find competent employees. This also applies to the automotive and industrial supplier Schaeffler, although it had to face some problems in China. The solution: a customized interface.
Read in "Recruiting in Far East" (published in "Personalwirtschaft" in October 2016) how the Schaeffler Group succeeded in connecting all relevant Chinese job platforms, such as Zhaopin or 51job, with the central SAP E-Recruiting using a customized interface.
AUTOMATION IN E-RECRUITING
Companies, which receive several thousand applications every year, have to invest a lot of time in reviewing the application documents. Often the relevant documents and file attachments have to be processed individually in order to achieve a qualitative review and assessment of a candidate. With 6,000 applications per year, this amount of time was simply too much for the Max Bögl Group. The aim was therefore to spend even less time on administration, but more time on the candidate. With the automated creation of an electronic application folder, the company has achieved this goal.
Read in "Automation in E-Recruiting" (published by "Bauingenieur" in June 2016) how the Max Bögl Group succeeded in significantly accelerating the application workflow through the automated creation of electronic application folders.

However, it can become a problem for users, if they need a reset outside of support hours. Varta Consumer Batteries GmbH & Co. KGaA was confronted with this challenge. The company has automated this process with a Password Reset Self Service and thus eased their IT support`s workload.
