We all know how important it is for employees to be engaged to perform at their best and be true advocates for your brand. Research and results show that when you put employees at the center of your business, you drive better business results.

In fact, companies that prioritize employee experience have 17 percent higher productivity, achieve 3x the revenue per employee and experience 40 percent lower turnover. (Gallup 2016 and 2018 Studies).

Yet, in many cases organizations fall short of meeting employee expectations.

As you strive to re-invent workforce experiences in ways that set you apart from the competition, we realize the importance of advice and guidance. With this in mind, we’re honored to announce that for the fourth consecutive year, SAP SuccessFactors has been named a Leader in the 2019 Magic Quadrant for Cloud HCM Suites for Midmarket and Large Enterprises. According to Gartner:

“Leaders demonstrate a market-defining vision of how HCM technology can help HR leaders achieve business objectives. Leaders have the ability to execute against that vision through products and services and have demonstrated solid business results in the form of revenue and earnings.

In the cloud HCM suite market, Leaders show a consistent ability to win deals, including the foundational elements of admin HR (with a large number of country-specific HR localizations) and high attach rates of TM, WFM and HRSD capabilities. They have multiple proof points of successful implementations. Further, these customers have workforces deployed in more than one of the main geographic regions (North America, Europe, MENA, Latin America and Asia/Pacific), in a wide variety of vertical industries and sizes of organization (by number of employees).

Leaders are often what other providers in the market measure themselves against.”

We are appreciative of this recognition, and at the same time, we are humbled by it. More than 100 million people globally use SAP SuccessFactors every day. That’s 6,700+ customers across all industries, sizes and geographies. With this market traction, we feel a tremendous sense of responsibility to continue to provide HR leaders, like you, with the trusted guidance you need to achieve outstanding business results.
