Promoting Employee Health and Well-Being with SAP SuccessFactors Technology

Feature Article | June 13, 2017 by Eva Woo

As the Health and Well-Being Solutions Marketer at SAP SuccessFactors, I work with people focused on creating solutions that help people make positive behavior changes to improve their lives for better health and well-being.

These are passionate, positive, smart and fun people who are collaborating on solutions designed to improve both the health of employees and the companies they work for.

Recent research shows that healthy, thriving employees are key to creating sustainable, profitable organizations.

  • According to SAP’s Business Health Culture Index (BHCI), a measure of the general cultural conditions that enable employees to stay healthy and balanced, a one percent point change in the BHCI can impact our operating profit by €80-90M*
  • Organizations with cultures and programs supporting employee health and well-being are perceived as more desirable by job candidates.**
  • Increases in employee well-being have been associated with 35 percent lower turnover rate. This translates into savings of approximately $19.5 million for a typical 10,000 person company.

Having healthy employees is clearly good for business, but creating healthier workforces is not a simple undertaking. This week at SuccessConnect London we will be discussing how SAP SuccessFactors technology can dramatically change and simplify how companies approach the complex topic of employee health and well-being. We will show how SAP SuccessFactors solutions can be used to access innovative health and well-being solutions provided by our partners. Here are just a few of the partner solutions we will be demonstrating:

  • Castlight: Health benefits platform that engages employees to make better healthcare decisions, whether they are staying healthy, accessing care or managing a condition.
  • Thrive Global: Behavioural change program to end the stress and burnout epidemic through sustainable science-based solutions for improved performance. Thrive delivers the latest in health and well-being through an enjoyable and engaging experience. SAP SuccessFactors customers will receive access to exclusive Thrive pathways designed to improve employee well-being and productivity and encourage positive behavior changes.
  • Virgin Pulse: Mobile-first behavioural change platform that delivers a personalized user experience, utilizing gamification to engage users in building healthy habits across all areas of well-being, from nutrition to sleep to financial well-being. Daily usage of the platform inspires meaningful, measurable and sustainable change across individuals and the businesses they serve.

In addition, we will demonstrate how customers are already utilizing our SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite to support their organizational health and well-being goals, through implementing healthy goals, managing and delivering health and well-being benefits, and establishing sustainable cultures to support health and well-being.
