The February release of SuccessFactors HCM Suite is upon us and within the Learning team, we have been working on making your wishlist a reality. Last month, we were recognized as a worldwide leader in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Learning Management in Integrated Talent Management 2015 Vendor Assessment. Although the MarketScape states that our learning solution is full-featured and “there is very little to improve upon based on client feedback”, we are always listening to your feedback and making enhancements that make your job easier.
We have a variety of enhancements to announce for the February release. Firstly, we know that many organizations have the need for a Human Resources Business Partner (HRBP) role. This newly created role enables an HRBP to log in and manage training requirements of their assigned employees. The HRBP role is functionally similar to a Supervisor role but allows someone to manage people even though they are outside of the hierarchical supervisor structure.
In addition to the new HRBP role, we have made several other enhancements, including registration by invitation code for Extended Enterprise, ratings for QuickGuides, training planner auto-assignment, and the ability to both make different elements optional and give credit for previously completed items within Programs.
Also, specific to our federal clients, we now support multiple approval processes for submitting SF-182 forms within the LMS. Rather than assign one process to all submissions, each user can be assigned an approval process using the assignment profile.
Thanks for your continual feedback and support, and we will continue to take your valuable input and ensure our Learning solution exceeds your expectations.
