It’s been a busy 4th quarter for the Employee Central team. We continue to enhance existing features of Employee Central particularly with our continued leadership in globalization, added employee self-service and reporting capabilities.
Expanded globalization with Employee Central and Employee Central Payroll.
SuccessFactors Employee Central is the cloud leader in globalization and localization. You can expect Employee Central to be translated locally, operate globally, and work simultaneously. With the November release, we’ve added Turkey and Vietnam to our localization offering, which brings our total country count to 58.
Expanding countries is great, but empowering employees to capitalize on these benefits through self- service is even better! Building on the India tax deduction functionality released in August, we’ve expanded the employee self-service to allow the declaration of investment proposals and the uploading of supporting documents, reducing the need for administrative support and extra paperwork.
Employee Central Payroll now supports payroll processing and localized requirements in 25 countries with the addition of Chile and New Zealand.
New employee self-service. With the November release, you have new ways to empower employees through employee self-service in Employee Central:
Through the employment profile screen, employees can view all deductions that
are associated to them, including the amount currently deducted, as well as the
frequency and duration of the deduction. Employee self-service enables employees
to manage these deductions from Employee Central, where they can delete a
deduction, change the amount, change the frequency or duration, and even add
another deduction category.
- Advance requests: Through the employment profile screen, employees can view all the
advances that are available to them, including the type of advance, the maximum
amount eligible, and the period end date. Employee self-service enables employees
to request the advance, set the amount, set the time period for repayment, and
upload any supporting documentation.
New reporting capabilities. Employee Central advanced reporting capabilities has expanded with the November release to include out-of-the-box predefined lists and analytical reports—including 30 international reports and 26 country-specific reports. Available in the United States, the new Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) country-specific report contains sub-reports covering movement, turnover, and workforce distribution.
Stay tuned for what’s coming in 2014!
Planning is already underway for 2014, and we are excited to share with you new enhancements and capabilities in the coming year.
