Kudos

When a colleague shows a "Get it Done" attitude where he/she identifies problems and/or risks and then proactively taking action to resolve or escalate them without waiting for someone else to notice them I give them a kudos. When a teammate shows best practice through experience and research, one’s ability to willingly share with others, the trends and knowledge that reflect the leading practices in a particular subject I give them a kudos. When a colleague demonstrates efficiency in improving speed, achieving savings, or simplifying processes or systems for the business I give them a kudos. When one conducts themselves to ensure that the company maintains a reputation for corporate integrity, sound professional principles, and values that promote the company's mission I give them a kudos.

SAP SuccessFactors

Success Factors is really well suited to handling needs of my organization. They've done a good job integrating with our course catalog and making it easy to book courses right from within the application. It falls short in letting managers cascade their objectives easily. When I cascade an objective, the cascaded objective will often inherit comments from my own objective and share them down to my reports - not ideal behavior.

Pros

Kudos

  • Encourages employees to go above and beyond!
  • Encourages our staff to make an effort to support our employees by handing out KUDOS for good deeds or for bright ideas that help innovate the company.
  • Helps our leaders make informed decisions on good staff by viewing the distribution of KUDOS to our employees and helps maintain a level of professionalism between the employees.

SAP SuccessFactors

  • Assignment Profile: This is an automated way of assigning courses and activities to users (through user interface configuration or through data feed synchronization).
  • Plateau Reports Designer: A client tool to customize the reports in SAP SuccessFactors Learning, widely used by most of the large organizations.
  • BizX integration: It's a SuccessFactors Business Execution (BizX) platform to connect the talent management and human resource management. It has a comprehensive view of the organization's resources skills, expertise, experience, and competency, etc.
  • Domain, Domain Restrictions and Roles: This is mainly to create an organizational structure and to provide the needed security permissions.
  • Integration with Jam, Skype and WebEx, etc.

Cons

Kudos

  • I think Kudos could use some UI enhancements as it can be a bit much info at one time
  • I believe Kudos could probably do a better job guiding administrators in setting up their organization kudos page/system to maximize its appearance and layout

SAP SuccessFactors

  • The app for ios and android have room for improvement. They are aware of the limitations but amount of access and functionality is not where it needs to be.
  • The homepage of Successfactors takes longer to load and refresh itself. Especially true when viewing employee files. That is partially due to how much information is having to show on the page but it still seems to take more time than usual to show each screen.
  • You can't change the amount of time the homepage will lock you out from inactivity. This might seem minuscule but it causes so many painful re-logins and time wasting effort to login again. There currently isn't an option to change the time before lockout.

Support is still lacking. If we don't have a critical business need where we're looking to license something new, there is no partnership with SuccessFactors. Unless of course you purchase the Platinum Support which we did not. It is difficult for us to take advantage of new functionality when we have professional services fees that will be incurred as a result. We're in a tough economy and our budgets are slim. We don't have wiggle room to add $5k here or $10k there. The overall integration into a total HCM solution is also lacking.

The overall platform could use the updates, so the overall look of it seems more modern. Also, the number of possible customizations could be made more simple to implement. SAP SuccessFactors does have a helpline that is helpful and free. On a positive note, it is beneficial in our performance reviews and recruiting efforts.

Alternatives Considered

Kudos

It is the best reward and recognition program I have come across so far as a team member and leader who is focused on successful completion of projects and being goal oriented. It gives one a chance to publicly reward a team/member. Such motivation spurs healthy competition and growth among members.

SAP SuccessFactors

As a whole, SuccessFactors is tough to beat. It's at its best when all of the modules are working together. There are few competitors that offer the full talent suite.Individually, the quality of the modules can vary. The performance and goal management modules perform well but the recruiting one significantly lags its competitors. The recruiting world has seen a lot of advances in technology over the last few years but these have yet to trickle down into the SuccessFactors module.

Return on Investment

Kudos

  • Invests in the employee, who in turn invests with the company.
  • Distributes rewards fairly and helps track progression within the company.
  • Allows for others to see what others are doing when they are doing it well, thus it inspires greatness.

SAP SuccessFactors

  • Visibility to the organization was an immediate impact and socialized the value of the product immediately.
  • A common and aggregated performance process reduced time and energy spent on quarterly goal setting.
  • Consolidating performance to pay outputs reduced time in some manual audit processes.
