What is SAP in human resources? SAP S/4HANA is a latest generation ERP system that supports digital transformation in companies. SAP implementation leads to streamlining and better integration of various departments in an organization. The SAP HCM and SAP Successfactors modules are designed to optimize human capital management processes. They support the HR department at every stage, from the recruitment and onboarding of employees, through planning their goals and salary management, to employee development and evaluation. SAP also responds to the contemporary labor market challenges by introducing SAP HXM (Human Experience Management), which focuses on employee experience management.
Is SAP good for HR? SAP HR is a comprehensive solution for your company’s HR and payroll department.
