Innovations to SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting

New Skills and Competencies

With this release, we are expanding innovation across SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting through several updates including job posting enhancements and updated skills and competencies to align to the whole-self model across the suite, including new integrations between Recruiting and the Talent Intelligence Hub and Opportunity Marketplace.

Recruiters can now attach a new selection of skills and competencies to job requisitions to support a skills-based approach to hiring and help improve consistency across the organization.

Additionally, for recruiting postings, we have  extended the list of job board integrations available in the job board marketplace to fulfill continuous recruitment needs regionally.

For early adopters, the redesigned applicant management workbench for recruiting includes enhancements, providing a new and improved user experience for recruiters to find applicants quickly and efficiently.

Stay tuned for updates as the Recruiting Applicant Management tool is planned to be released to general availability this year.


Innovations to SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding

Configurable New Hire in Onboarding

In the 1H 2023 release, we have extended functionalities and delivered enhancements to SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding to simplify and streamline the hiring process.

Inspired by a customer community idea, the configurable new hire functionality has been extended to Onboarding, allowing new hires to easily provide personal details as well as customizable details all in one step, saving time while improving efficiency and data accuracy.

With this new feature, administrators can create hire templates with the blocks needed for the type of employment you are hiring for, allowing you to customize the data collected during the hiring process.

Another new enhancement with this release includes the ability to create custom email notification triggers using business rules for onboarding participants.

Additionally, the SAP Identity Authentication Service for new hires and rehires has been enhanced, allowing for customers to now sync identification and improve the notification process.


We are excited to deliver these new innovations and continue our HXM journey with our Recruiting and Onboarding customers. For full details, please check out the What’s New Viewer.
