We have a unique opportunity for SuccessConnect attendees to engage in compelling discussions with subject matter experts, receive exclusive first access to our latest research, and ultimately influence SAP SuccessFactors business, product, and portfolio strategy by participating in winning the race for skills study.

Organizations around the world continue to grapple with skill gaps and talent shortages. While skills-based hiring is associated with higher quality candidates, accelerated time to hire, improved retention rates and a more diverse talent pool, few organizations have fully leaned in and adopted this approach.

If you are a talent acquisition leader and/or HR leader responsible for organizational skills strategy, we invite you to participate in a 30-minute interview at SuccessConnect to share your point of view on this topic with our Behavioral Scientists. We have openings on Tuesday, October 3 and Wednesday, October 4. Choose the time that works best for you here.

Here's a preview of the questions that Dr. Autumn Krauss and Dr. Lauren Park will ask you:

  • Are organizations ready to adopt “skills-based” hiring practices? What are the barriers they face to doing so?​

  • What must organizations consider as they shift from filling short-term skill gaps to long-term workforce planning?​

  • How will compensation practices need to evolve if traditional models based on qualifications, experience and tenure are no longer fit for purpose?​

  • What is the role of HR technology in making skills-based hiring and compensation a reality?​

Past participants have found their involvement in SAP SuccessFactors research activities to be “insightful,” “useful,” and “an excellent opportunity.” In fact, an SAP SuccessFactors consultant for a large European consumer products organization recently stated, “We feel valued as a customer when someone asks us for our opinion... It’s a win-win exchange for both customers and your development perspective.”

We invite you to watch this short video from Aaron Green, Chief Marketing & Solutions Officer for SAP SuccessFactors, as he further explains the purpose and benefits in participating in the research study. We hope you will consider being part of this important research project. Its results will inform best practices and technological solutions for winning the race for skills for years to come.
