SAP Nears Launch of Digital Work Zone for HR

SAP Work Zone for HR

SAP is moving toward the planned release of Work Zone for HR, which offers access to business tools, information and communications through a single user experience.

Announced in June, Work Zone for HR can be used throughout the organization to integrate the use of disparate systems. Rather than switch from one application to another while they do their work, it allows users to tap into more tools and information from a single place.

Even as the Covid-19 pandemic continues to stress employers and employees alike—or perhaps because of it—SAP SuccessFactors believes its experience-focused approach to HCM remains important. Organizations need help as they grapple with engagement and efficiency in a workplace that’s increasingly dispersed and under pressure to perform.

In a blog post, SuccessFactors SVP of Products and Design Amy Wilson said the employee experience is hampered when users must juggle multiple applications. SAP’s research indicates that 74% of employees believe their work experience would improve if they had better technology, she said.

Since launching its Human Experience Management approach in 2019, SuccessFactors has argued that HCM systems work best when they’re truly intuitive and present their capabilities in the flow of work.

Personalized Work Zone

Wilson described Work Zone for HR as a “personalized digital workplace” where users can access everything they need to do their work, and personalize it match their priorities.

In addition to SuccessFactors modules, Work Zone can connect solutions from partner apps and the SAP ecosystem. It also allows users to customize their dashboards so they can organize components to match their approach to work. The system surfaces content and insights on an customized basis, as well.

Work Zone for HR is meant to improve collaboration and learning by simplifying access to peer resources and intelligent recommendations, as well as community and affinity groups.  

The product was made available for preview in October, and will be generally available on Nov. 20, Wilson said.
