  • Explain how SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding integrates with other SAP SuccessFactors solutions

Onboarding Integration with other SAP SuccessFactors Solutions

SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding provides a robust and a simplified experience to onboarding users. Some of the major benefits of the Onboarding solution as part of the SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite are highlighted below.

Onboarding with Employee Central

Onboarding is fully integrated with Employee Central and is built on the SAP SuccessFactors Platform. Onboarding utilizes the same data models used by SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central and can add additional HRIS Element fields for collecting new hire information. New hires can log in using the same user credentials for both the SAP SuccessFactors Platform and Onboarding. A streamlined version of the home page is available and controlled by Role-Based Permission.

Onboarding with Recruiting

Onboarding is compatible with SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Management by default. Integrating Recruiting with SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding facilitates the seamless flow of user data between Recruiting and Onboarding solutions. This integration passes the user data that is gathered from the candidates during recruiting to be used in the onboarding process.

Recruiters can initiate onboarding by selecting candidates that have Ready-to-Hire status in the Recruiting application. Once onboarding is initiated, a block appears in SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting where you can see details about who initiated the onboarding request.

Onboarding with Goal Management

You can create a standard New Hire Goal Management template for Onboarding using SAP SuccessFactors Goal Management. You can add goals for the new hire using the Set Goals activity in Onboarding. All new hires processed after the goals activity is configured will have this activity assigned to their hiring manager. The objectives aren't restricted to only 30-, 60-, or 90-day objectives. You can also add a 120-day objective, 150-day objective, and so on.

Onboarding with Learning

If you require new hires to access and complete assigned courses before their start date, you can integrate SAP SuccessFactors Learning with Onboarding. Once you've set up this integration, data from Onboarding is exported to Learning in the time period of your choice. This practice allows learning administrators to assign courses for the new hires. The new hires can log in to the home page before the start date and access the Take Courses to-do tile. New hires can also navigate to Learning from the home page menu drop-down list.
