Changing Work for Good Requires Rethinking and Unlearning

New HXM Innovations Fuel Ongoing Employee Development and Growth

Amy Wilson, senior vice president of Products and Design for SAP SuccessFactors, returned for a much-loved session on SAP’s HXM product strategy and vision. In the product keynote session, she shared the latest innovation, the SAP SuccessFactors Opportunity Marketplace solution, and showcased how employees can easily discover recommendations – all in one place – to further their ongoing development and growth. Recommendations range from capabilities, learning, roles, and projects to dynamic teams, mentors, and more.

In addition, Anabel Fall, group head of People Innovation and Transformation at Zurich Insurance Company, a leading Switzerland-based multi-line insurer, shared how and why work sustainability is both a commitment and responsibility of Zurich to its workforce to help employees continually grow.

Don’t Underestimate the Power of Moving HR to the Cloud

How frustrating is it when you place an order and get no confirmation or delivery time frame? How does your level of engagement shift when the right recommendations are served up?
