By now, we have all been inundated with bits of information related to the upcoming changes to the SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding module. We know it’s coming, yet there are still a lot of unanswered questions about the interface and new functionalities.
Some changes are even being gradually introduced into the current application of Onboarding in beta.
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.
You may have heard some discussions around changes to the SuccessFactors Onboarding module. It’s TRUE!! SAP SuccessFactors is in the process of completing a major overhaul to the existing Onboarding module in 2018. Although it’s not considered to be a new module, it certainly will incorporate a new look and feel to the end user while aligning to other SuccessFactors modules.
