Ready Your Workforce for the Future with SAP SuccessFactors Succession & Development rapid deployment solution

Today, in this blog, I wanted to point out a rather overlooked aspect, of many organizations, which is “Succession Management.” It has been proven that companies that extend succession planning and employee career development processes deeper into the organization are more profitable – increasing sales by as much as 14% *. However most organizations fail to identify the leaders of future within the ecosystem. As a result, all that capital and HR best practices invested in grooming, training and rewarding key talent fails to deliver during periods of natural transition or moments of unexpected position replacements.

To deal with such challenges, SuccessFactors helps organizations identify and develop the talent needed to improve organizational strength and achieve today’s business goals, while providing visibility and planning capabilities to support future growth. With SuccessFactors Succession & Development, organizations can create strategic succession processes that reach deep into the organization, align with business needs, and drive better business outcomes.
