From Complicated Workflow to Simple and Seamless Hiring for Store Managers in SuccessFactors

From a Complicated Workflow to Simple and Seamless Hiring for Store Managers

Utilising the SuccessFactors Employee Central Self-Service portal can be time-consuming for managers who need to hire fast, as they are not able to create filters for what they need. Managers are faced with hundreds of fields that may not be relevant to them. This is where the extension GP Ragnar comes into play. Ragnar is built as an add-on to the Employee Central module, specifically the Add New Employee tool, to help managers create filters for the fields they require to make decisions about potential hires. These filters help managers decrease the time it takes to find candidates and streamlines the hiring process.

GP Strategies has been implementing SuccessFactors since 2005, and the most important takeback from clients through the years is that one size does not necessarily fit all,” says Tom Ciesak Kristensen, Head of Extension Services at GP Strategies.

Whereas the benefits of a streamlined cloud system are greater than with the old on-premise solution, there are areas where clients can customise their SuccessFactors solution by extending it to a near-perfect fit. The app Ragnar is a great example of how hiring has gone from a complicated workflow to a simple and seamless task for store managers in a large European retail chain. Based on the success we have seen in Northern Europe, we are excited to see what the future holds as we continue to roll this out to other customers across the globe.
