March 6, 2023

The best way to make sure your business is running smoothly is to ensure that all the departments are working together. If you invest in integration for your human resources (HR) system, you can easily identify areas where departments are not performing well and determine how to improve them. In turn, this shifts your organization to function proactively as opposed to reacting to issues. In this blog post, we go over the main business, technical and support benefits of integration and why your HR system, such as SAP SuccessFactors, should be connected to your health, safety, and labor relations processes for a fully integrated approach to HR.

Business Benefits

Integrating your core HR system, such as SAP SuccessFactors, with Sodales’ health, safety and employee relations platform can bring a multitude of benefits to your business. By using an all-in-one platform approach like Sodales, you can quickly identify and apply the necessary corrective actions, leading to faster execution and resolution. With greater transparency in investigations, knowledge gaps between departments can be easily closed, ensuring that everyone is on the same page. This can create a clearer picture of responsibility metrics for various process flow steps, which allows HR departments to hold all necessary data. This allows for accountability to be defined and for collaboration and transparency to be achieved.

Another business benefit is that you can quickly pinpoint the correct information without wasting time, leading to improved corrective action timing. This can also help your business to become more preventative, allowing you to identify issues before they become a problem. For example, by turning on a process step that triggers performance management activities in HR, you can ensure that your employees are meeting their goals and objectives. Similarly, if there is an infraction at a site, you can enable a trigger for specific training to be completed.

With integration, you can also benefit from process-level innovations. This can help you to identify what different areas of operations, HR, and finance are responsible for, leading to clearer collaboration between departments. By integrating Sodales with your core HR system, you can improve your business’s efficiency, transparency, and accountability, leading to positive outcomes for both your employees and customers.

Technical Benefits

Integration can also bring a range of technical benefits to your business. As human resources are at the core of dealing with employee data, it is essential that the information managed by this department is accurate and up to date. With live integration, businesses can ensure that they always have access to the most accurate employee information, even when team members move departments, change addresses, or experience life events like a change in status. Sodales’ integration capabilities ensure that there is one version of the truth and closes any gaps in information.

Another technical benefit of integrating with SuccessFactors is enhanced security and privacy. With the use of a basic connector, organizations can quickly replicate security protocols, roles, and permissions from their core HR system, without having to recreate them within Sodales’ platform. This can ensure that sensitive employee data is protected and only accessible to authorized personnel.

Integrating Sodales with your core HR system, can also result in quicker deployment and faster time-to-value. By utilizing a pre-built HR model, you can reduce the time and effort required for implementation and start seeing the benefits of our solution sooner. This can lead to improved efficiency and productivity across your organization, as well as data accuracy and security.

Support Benefits

Having clear and efficient communication across your organization is a main component to running a successful operation. Integrating with SAP SuccessFactors can allow you to better support your team members, organization wide. As HR is at the forefront of an organization’s employees, it is essential that HR professionals are equipped with the tools and information they need to support all teams within the organization. By integrating a solution like Sodales for Enterprise Health, Safety, and Labor Relations with your core HR system, businesses can simplify the experience for their team members and ensure that HR always has access to up-to-date information. This also gives HR professionals the ability to hear directly from their employees, which allows them to have an equal and informed seat at the table when health, safety, and labor relations issues are being discussed. When communication is transparent, HR departments are better equipped to support various locations and site-specific needs for their organization.
