 A Promising Start

Thanks to SAP SuccessFactors solutions, you have not only hired the ideal recruit, but also given him a smooth transition into your organization. He is already a valued member of the sales team. And yet both you and Ryan recognize that he still has plenty more to give.

The Performance & Goals module allows you to accurately measure his performance and assess his strengths and weaknesses. With ongoing and tailored feedback, Ryan knows where he can improve and help your company achieve its goals.

Reward and Motivate

Taking your advice on board, Ryan is even able to exceed expectations. He smashes the junior sales record in his second month. As you aim to promote a fair, performance-driven culture within your enterprise, you decide to reward Ryan for his impressive efforts.

In conjunction with Performance & Goals, Compensation provides a precise view of your bonus budget and shows who has earned what. This way, Ryan’s efforts don’t go unnoticed. A clear personal development structure topped off with a healthy reward at the end of the month motivate him to keep giving his all.
