Senior Vice President, mySAP HR
numbers tell the story. In our case, they
bespeak the market leader in the HR arena more
than 32 million employees actively managed
through mySAP HR processes, 50 different country
versions of our HR offerings, a plethora of
best-of-breed functions to support everything
from payroll to managing employee objectives
and appraisals, and ROI numbers and savings
that soar as high as 90% on self-services technologies.
But sometimes numbers
dont tell the whole story. Particularly when it comes to people.
While employees and their intellectual capital are certainly assets, they
are not the kind of assets that conveniently lend themselves to nice,
neat quantifiable metrics. Employees are multidimensional and need to
be managed and motivated as such.
It takes specialized solutions to influence
their output. A compensation solution is one such tool. But its
only effective if it accounts for fixed and variable compensation schemes,
stock options, the kinds of career advancement employees seek to attain,
a way to identify high and low performers, and ultimately, ties to broader
business initiatives and alignment with overarching corporate strategies.
This kind of thinking is the essence of
Human Capital Management (HCM) recognizing that you need to better
manage the people who, in fact, manage your business. This is also the
essence of the emerging critical role of HR professionals as strategic
service providers. HR is no longer just about tracking payroll. Its
about optimizing your corporate performance by optimizing the application
of human capital to all key business processes. Its about knowing
what business activities need staffing and who has the skills and availability
to meet those needs. Its about keeping employees objectives
in sync with corporate goals. Its about being able to hire quicker
and smarter than your competitors. Its about automating HR tasks
so that they become less expensive and free up HR personnel for
more strategic topics. These are the kinds of asset allocation
and management challenges HR organizations are now stepping up to address.
And these are the challenges we address
with mySAP HR solutions, which deliver Human Capital Management for
your business. Note that this phrase reads for your business,
not for your HR department. mySAP HR solutions are not only
integrated with one another, they are integrated with CRM, Financials,
and SCM solutions to optimize the human capital aspects of all the processes
within your company.
The result? Full leverage of what is, ultimately, every organizations
greatest competitive asset its people. ROI studies and demonstrable
cost savings affirm that strong HCM initiatives have a strong impact on
your bottom line. And the numbers do bear this out!
