Improving recruitment strategies accelerates business transformation with SuccessFactors

Auckland, New Zealand –  (05.03.2012) – To support its forthcoming business seminar in Auckland, the global Business Execution (BizX) cloud software company, SuccessFactors, an SAP company, has released a white paper titled How to Source and Select the Best Hires. The paper focuses on recruitment management, and explains the benefits of implementing a successful recruiting process to ensure recruiting the best talent.

Today, companies that excel at finding and attracting the best candidates not only improve the productivity of their own workforce, they also deprive their competition from finding and securing top quality talent. An organisation cannot hire the best candidates for the job if they never apply in the first place. This means sourcing candidates is one of the key differentiators of a highly successful recruiting process.

In the How to Source and Select the Best Hires white paper, two fundamental aspects of recruitment are discussed:

  • How to source the best candidates?
  • How to select the best candidates?

These questions form the basis for designing an effective recruiting process. These questions are the start point for designing an effective recruiting process which should include senior management representing operations and finance, as well as the HR department.

The new white paper is related to a business transformation seminar taking place in Auckland on March 7th 2012. The seminar focuses on how workplaces are changing shape rapidly and the impact this is having on recruitment strategies.

Recent experience suggests that smarter use of data can unlock the potential of the workforce helping to accelerate the process of business transformation. By aggregating data from across an organisation and using the right analytics, business metrics and human capital tools, it is possible to identify gaps in the skills of a workforce that are required to deliver strategic goals. Once the weaknesses are identified, the gaps can be filled through smart recruitment, targeted training and the use of innovative collaboration technologies. Only then can an organisation begin to transform the performance and delivery of a strategy.

SuccessFactors offers solutions to integrate workforce and business performance data to drive deeper understanding of how they can transform their workplace into a high performing organisation with the latest workforce management tools and analytics.
