SuccessFactors Performance Management is an ever-growing, advanced cloud-based module designed to improve all facets of the performance process, from goal setting to coaching. The module is a vast, but very user-friendly tool which include some features that help streamline the annual and/or mid-year review process, some development processes, and managing collaborative sessions, via utilization of the ‘Ask for Feedback’ and ‘Get Feedback’ features. These features usher in a more comprehensive, and even more user-friendly experience.
From previous SAP announcements, we knew that the overall goal of the updated Onboarding module was to simplify. Using the existing Employee Central interface, the users (both new hire and administrator) would see an experience mimicking the familiarities of EC. As of recent, we have now learned that Onboarding will be sharing MDF Objects and EC Entities. This will support the effort it can currently take to complete mapping between Recruiting → Onboarding → Employee Central.
Now that Onboarding will be built off the core structure of Employee Central, those implementing and updating will have the benefit of using the new ‘Recruit to Hire’ tool, which will simplify what used to be an effort-intense process.
Whether you are planning to have discussions about your upcoming performance process or have already started the conversations, chances are it has been almost a year since the last process was kicked off. With so many other initiatives and major projects between performance cycles, it is easy for the preparation from the previous performance and goals cycle to feel like a distant memory.

A trending area of focus across industries is thought leadership surrounding the alignment and evaluation of performance. Ah yes, performance reviews. The dreaded period when employees are evaluated based on their completed work for the prior year.

Have you ever wondered what SuccessFactors Variable Pay is and if you need it? Do you need Variable Pay when you already have Compensation implemented? How is Variable Pay different from Compensation? Do you need Employee Central to have Variable Pay?
If you have ever looked at the Employee Profile within SuccessFactors and thought, “It is nice, but could use a bit more,” you are in luck. People Profile is an updated user interface that looks a bit livelier. Instead of a separate "public profile" page, People Profile uses a collapsible page header that is fully configurable and permission-controlled. All the information and functionality on your existing employee profile are now available on the single, unified People Profile page, or can be accessed immediately in a dialog window. Administrators can use a convenient drag-and-drop configuration tool to set up the People Profile and manage its content and layout. This feature requires Employee Profile, V12 User Interface, and Role-Based Permissions.
