SAPPHIRE NOW kicked off with a bang this week with a great keynote led by Christian Klein and Julia White (check it out here if you missed it live). The ‘reinvent’ message was heard loud and clear and will continue to be shared – and demonstrated – throughout the 400+ sessions to come with SAPPHIRE NOW over the next few weeks. And I’m pleased to share this will include several HR sessions designed specifically for you, companies in the midsize space.

First, if you haven’t registered, it’s not too late – Register Now for SAPPHIRE NOW!

Now, a bit more on the HR for Midsize Companies Subtrack. A recent study that SAP SuccessFactors, Qualtrics, and EY commissioned from Forrester Consulting revealed the direct correlation between positive employee experiences and business success. Specifically, for small and midsize companies, revenue, customer satisfaction, and organizational agility were noted as the top 3 business outcomes most impacted by employee experience initiatives. But…it also revealed there are still some significant gaps when it comes to employee expectations versus reality. In short, when your employees win, your business wins – and there is a lot of upside for companies who are willing to prioritize and invest in their employee experience.

The HR for Midsize Companies Subtrack (found under the HR Track) offers a series of sessions to help you explore how your peers are using the employee experience as drivers for change. Whether you’re using our full SAP SuccessFactors Human Experience Management suite, only a few solutions, or still exploring your options, these sessions will provide beneficial information on adopting an employee-first approach, best practices to drive adoption, making the move to the cloud, and our strategy and innovations to support you along your HXM journey.

Now, for a shameless plug for one of my sessions. Myself and Emily Wilson, from Qualtrics, are hosting Close the Employee Experience Gap with Best Practices for Midsize Companies [HR103] (available June 9 for EMEA & Americas; June 23 for Asia Pacific). This will be a high-energy, fast-paced session where we’ll start by sharing some of the findings from the study mentioned above. And then we’ll hop in to share five specific ways midsize companies are closing the HR technology gap, highlighting a specific customer, their approach, and the resulting business success with each. We’ll hit on core HR, recruiting, learning, performance management, and payroll – so a little bit of something for everyone.

Look forward to seeing you at this session and joining us for what’s sure to be an awesome SAPPHIRE NOW!
