Rostelecom Expands Digital Workforce with SAP® SuccessFactors® Solutions

March 21, 2017

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO — March 14, 2017 — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) today announced that Rostelecom, one of the largest telecommunications companies in Russia with more than 140,000 employees, has implemented SAP® SuccessFactors® human capital management (HCM) solutions, including SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, to help attract the best talent and manage its quickly growing workforce. Rostelecom is working with SAP to simplify and optimize its human resources (HR) processes, and improve its talent acquisition and management processes, to ensure the company continues to attract and retain the best people across its markets.

“As a large provider of innovative digital services, we needed to bring that same level of innovation to our internal processes,” said Nikita Cherkasenko, head of Assessment, Training and Development at Rostelecom. “We want to help build a new digital Russia, and we know a company as large as ours cannot be flexible and agile enough without the best HCM solutions in the market. After the recent implementation of SAP SuccessFactors solutions, we are now able to recruit top talent with the digital skills needed to differentiate us from competitors, while also providing a consistent working experience for all.”

Rostelecom has grown to become Russia’s leading provider of telecommunications services, covering millions of households. It became critical to standardize and modernize the HR processes and tools covering the organization’s large employee base. Rostelecom implemented SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central to transform all its data into a single structure. One centralized database, streamlined processes and transparency into critical information like employee capabilities help ensure trust and satisfaction. The company also rolled out the SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting and SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding solutions to help reduce the burden placed by significant recruitment needs. With the SAP SuccessFactors Performance & Goals, SAP SuccessFactors Compensation and SAP SuccessFactors Succession & Development solutions, Rostelecom standardized performance management and calibration across offices, leading to both cost savings and improvements in employee engagement.

Having transformed recruiting, performance management and compensation processes to be more agile and transparent, the next step is to implement the SAP SuccessFactors Learning solution, which will help Rostelecom deliver training more effectively and ensure employees throughout the organization remain engaged, supported and rewarded.

“Rostelecom’s goal is to build a new digital Russia. Like many businesses across the globe, it looked first to its people – 140,000 of them – and transforming HR as the core of its business transformation,” said Mike Ettling, president SAP SuccessFactors.* “As we often see, Rostelecom is working to simplify across an environment of nonstandard HR processes. As a leading telecom provider for millions of households in Russia, it also needs to attract and develop great people – people who expect access to modern, mobile, cool apps. We’re delighted to partner with Rostelecom on its journey and as it looks to provide an awesome employee experience.”

Rostelecom is yet another global organization to adopt SAP SuccessFactors solutions to put people first and help them succeed. As more companies look to transform HR to meet the demands of an increasingly global and digital workforce, they are embracing leading SAP SuccessFactors solutions to help unify and optimize HR processes, while also fostering a mobile, cloud-first philosophy.
