LONDON — SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) announced that Nestlé, the world’s largest food company, has implemented the SAP SuccessFactors continuous performance management (CPM) functionality on mobile devices to facilitate ongoing feedback and performance coaching for its employees.
Part of Nestlé’s digital workforce strategy, CPM helps the company engage and retain top talent by fostering continuous dialog and feedback between employees and managers with easy-to-use, leading-edge performance and development tools. This announcement was made at SuccessConnect in London taking place June 12-14 at the ExCel London.
With employees present in 191 countries, Nestlé needs to engage its people with broader business goals and strategy while also standardizing performance management and development. By shifting to a continuous performance management model with the help of SAP SuccessFactors solutions, Nestlé’s employees and managers can turn a backward-looking annual assessment into an ongoing series of activities that focus on employee development to drive continuous performance improvement. The company can also align performance management with other critical HR and business processes.
Nestlé is empowering a modern digital workforce by ensuring its global employees have access to a cloud-first, mobile-enabled, flexible HR platform. To help standardize, simplify and unify its HR data and processes, Nestlé is currently planning the rollout of SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central and SAP SuccessFactors solutions for workforce analytics and workforce planning across all regions with a target go-live date at the end of 2019. The latest introduction of CPM along with the previously implemented SAP SuccessFactors solutions for performance and goals, compensation and succession helps Nestlé to engage, motivate and retain a highly skilled, diverse and global workforce.
“Nestlé is truly one of the most recognizable and innovative companies in the world,” said Robert Enslin, Member of the Executive Board of SAP SE and president of Cloud Business Group, SAP. “It’s refreshing to see the Nestlé commitment to every individual in its massive workforce. It recognizes that investing in a differentiated and digitalized experience for employees today is a strong investment in the future of both its talent and the company. We’re excited to continue innovating and partnering with Nestlé to provide an employee experience that truly powers its journey to become the world’s leading nutrition, health and wellness brand.”
Tarun Wadhwani, head of Integrated Talent Development at Nestlé, and Karen Lofthouse, senior HRIS specialist at Nestlé, will join SAP SuccessFactors product leaders James Harvey, Thomas Otter and David Ragones during the product keynote on June 14 at SuccessConnect in London.
