SuccessConnect 2022: Together, We Can Change Work for Good

SuccessConnect 2022: Together, We Can Change Work for Good

“The future is people-led,” said Aaron Green, chief marketing and solutions officer of SAP SuccessFactors, at the opening keynote of SuccessConnect 2022, where the excitement for SAP SuccessFactors’ vision of the future of work brought human resources (HR) leaders together under the banner “unleash the power of human potential and change work for good.”

Green spoke of the need for a new kind of business that elevates people and culture. He said it is now clearer than ever that “putting individuals at the center of business is no longer just the right thing to do; it’s the necessary thing to do to create a workforce for the future.”

The message comes during a turbulent year for HR leaders, who have stepped up as unsung heroes supporting their organizations and driving resilience through an array of unprecedented challenges, such as inflation, labor crises, skills gaps, and a silent mental health epidemic. Many are looking to SAP SuccessFactors’ vision for human experience management (HXM) to help them innovate faster, increase agility, and deliver better employee experiences that deepen workforce engagement and improve profitability.

A Vast and Diverse Customer Community Comes Together

SuccessConnect 2022 officially got underway September 13-14 in Las Vegas. This was the first year it has returned as an in-person event since the beginning of the pandemic and attendance was phenomenal, with full sessions and standing room only at the keynotes. The event was co-located with HR-Tech 2022, also held this week in Las Vegas. SuccessConnect 2022 is also offered as a virtual event, available on demand with access to keynotes, demos, and select sessions that include informative customer-led sessions from brewing company Heineken N.V. and telecommunications company Vodafone Group Plc.

During one insightful keynote session, leaders from Deloitte shared the story of their talent experience transformation in the U.S., a project that is bringing their IT and HR teams together to advance organizational efficiencies and create better employee experiences.

Offering the most comprehensive global HR software portfolio, SAP SuccessFactors continues its impressive growth trajectory, topping 220 million users globally, 300 partner apps, and 850 go-lives in the first half of 2022. Customer migration to the cloud shows steady momentum, with the announcement that more than 5,000 customers are now using SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central – a flexible, cloud-based human resources information system (HRIS) solution – to transform their people and culture strategies.

Maryann Abbajay, chief revenue officer for SAP SuccessFactors, called the milestone a “celebration of our vast and diverse customer community of people and culture leaders.” Find out more about how SAP SuccessFactors customers are transforming the experience for their employees in this interview with Abbajay from the SuccessConnect show floor:
