Key Concept

SAP E-Recruiting has recruitment and succession planning instruments that help companies find new employees, employ them in positions that suit their capabilities, promote their professional development, and retain them in the long term. The diversity of functions, such as electronic screening and filtering, optimizes the work of recruiters. The SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting solution (formerly SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Execution) includes Recruitment Marketing and Recruitment Management. Together with Onboarding, the solutions offer organizations the ability to efficiently identify and attract the best candidates.

The ability to meet personnel requirements with quality hires is a key challenge for HR.

The recruitment process helps a company’s success if it makes the right decisions. SAP offers two functionalities to optimize the recruitment process, minimize the administrative overhead, and reduce the time and cost involved in the process. They are E-Recruitment in the on-premise model and SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting. I provide an overview of both functionalities based on my experience.
