Opportunity Marketplace: Perzonalized development and growth


Companies invest a lot in attracting external hires and still struggle to get positions filled. But what about your internal talents and internal development opportunities? Do you do enough to make them stay and grow?

  • Do you provide personalized learning and growth opportunities, easily available at any time and from anywhere for all employees?
  • Do you publish project opportunities or internships internally and try to staff it with internal skilled and interested colleagues? Do you encourage internal talent mobility?
  • Do you have internal mentoring programs for everybody to participate as mentor or mentee?

SAP SuccessFactors Opportunity Marketplace offers an easily available and intelligent platform for internal development and growth where employees can search for projects, collaboration opportunities, mentoring & coaching programs, learnings or future career options matched to their skills and interests.

Opportunity Marketplace technically brings together Learning, Succession and Development, Mentoring and internal Job postings (as of 2H 2023) enriched with the option to create Assignments to an easily available and accessible marketplace with AI-supported recommendations based on competency and skill framework from Center of Capabilities.

Use Case: Create an assignment, publish it and receive applications

Imagine your company is about to implement SF Compensation together with an SAP Partner. As an internal Project Lead you want to find two internal Key Users with passion for and experience in compensation topics to support the project and work together closely with the Partner.

Based on your permission settings (Opportunity Marketplace is controlled via RBPs) you create a Project Opportunity as assignment and publish it in on to the marketplace.


Your assignment will be recommended to colleagues with matching interests and skills and they can apply for it.



Application can be assessed based on provided attachments and on matched skills, offers can be sent and assignments can be easily filled with internal talents.


Mobile Features in SAP SuccessFactors Mobile App

Development and Growth Opportunities must be available at any time and from anywhere for employees to benefit from them. Hence Opportunity Marketplace offers great functionality in SAP SF Mobile App.

Users can view and apply for opportunities and associated capabilities fully mobile, screen applications and send offers as an opportunity owner.



Opportunity Marketplace is a great tool to promote employee development, establish a modern and agile project-based work culture in the company and encourage internal talent mobility.

It can help transform work in your organization into a state-of-the-art talent model in which you speak of projects, not of jobs and roles. By that, work will become more efficient by being divided into projects, employees can unlock their potential and value, develop themselves and explore their interests and silos will be broken down and cross-organizational participation will be fostered.
