SuccessConnect 2022 Recap: Paramount’s Reimagined Digital Employee Experience Boldly Going Where No Company Has Gone Before
Just a few short months ago, thousands of HR leaders gathered in Las Vegas for SuccessConnect 2022, the HR event of the year. After two years without an in-person event, it was clear that this was going to be something special. Eager attendees made their way to the show floor to meet with old friends and to make new connections. There was excitement in every corner of the event, from the product demo pods to the breakout theaters. Everyone was ready to make up for lost time and to once again be with their peers in the HR community.
While being a part of this community of HR leaders has countless perks, one in particular stands above all else – the ability to hear directly from peers. Learning from those with hands-on experience is invaluable, especially in an industry where experience means everything. With 140+ sessions led by countless industry experts and thoughts leaders, there was no shortage of lessons to learn. However, a clear standout was the session presented by Paramount.
As a leader in the entertainment industry, Paramount has been producing iconic films and television shows for over 100 years. In an increasingly competitive market, Paramount has taken important steps to evolve and embrace change in a digital world. Its popular streaming service, Paramount+, has been an integral component of their digital transformation. However, this digitalization mindset has gone far beyond just their consumer offerings. Paramount chose to expand on this strategy by leveraging the latest HR technology to harmonize their processes and create consumer-grade experiences for their managers and employees.
With SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central as their core HR system, Paramount was able to move from multiple disparate systems to one integrated platform to manage their workforce. This new single source of truth for people data has enabled advanced analytics to make more informed data-driven decisions. And with improved workflows and self-service tools, employees and managers have been able to more efficiently complete critical HR tasks.
“SAP SuccessFactors solutions have helped us deliver a seamless and tailored digital employee experience that connects people and teams across our business.”
– Johan Eerenstein, SVP Workforce Enablement, Paramount
With an integrated data platform as the foundation of their HR transformation, Paramount has been able to focus on improving the overall employee experience and creating a sustainable workforce that allows everyone to reach their full potential at work and beyond.
