SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.Feb. 27, 2019  — SAP SE today announced the latest group of global organizations to select SAP® SuccessFactors® solutions for human capital management (HCM) to help accelerate digital HR transformation. By leading the people strategy and delivering an exceptional employee experience that attracts and retains top talent, these organizations are better able to drive innovation and stay ahead of the curve.

“Every company wants a high-performing, dedicated workforce,” said SAP SuccessFactors President Greg Tomb. “The employee experience is absolutely key to that. Organizations like these that prioritize their people by digitally transforming their HR technology are one step closer to winning the war for top talent and connecting people to purpose, which ultimately leads to stronger business results.”

These companies, spanning multiple geographies and industries, are among the latest to select SAP SuccessFactors solutions in the fourth quarter of 2018 to help digitalize HR processes and deliver world-class employee experiences:

  • Volkswagen Group, with headquarters in Germany and operations around the world, selected the full SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite to help streamline and consolidate HR processes and increase efficiencies across all brands globally.
