Before employees can start returning to the workplace, employers will need to know when and how to do so safely. This is a crucial and new process for everyone involved, from employees to HR managers.

The SAP SuccessFactors Visa and Permits Management solution can help you simplify the return-to-work process to ensure business continuity and compliance with rapidly increasing safety and privacy regulations. The solution provides flexible tools to help you design auditable business processes that can be adapted to local guidelines to reduce risk and increase operational efficiency, thereby saving you cost and time to be able to focus on your employees during moment that matter. Real-time analytics and dashboards enable key executives to monitor the safety of their workforce, track health screening expenses, and provide updates and results quickly and securely to all stakeholders involved in the process.

The intuitive self-service solution enables the employee or their manager to start the process from anywhere, either from the mobile phone or desktop. For example, the employee can submit a request to return to the workplace and complete a health clearance form. Upon receiving the request, the HR administrator can review the information and confirm when it is safe for the employee to return to the workplace. Additional steps and tasks can also be included in the process to ensure safe physical distancing between employees. Employees can be notified about what is required and when each step of the return-to-work process is completed. These notifications help provide clear communication and compliance with safety guidelines and protocols.

Automated alerts can also be generated for health clearance inconsistencies, delays, or rescreening requirements. You can assess and reassign tasks when needed in emergency situations. For example, if an administrator is not available to confirm the return date for the employee, the task can be reassigned to a different administrator to prevent delays. In addition, you can send alerts and notifications to keep all stakeholders informed and moving forward with key tasks, such as to switch to a phased return-to work approach or rotating work schedules.

You can easily generate reports and receive up-to-the minute analytics to help you make data-driven decisions. For example, you can pinpoint areas of potential risk and density and take immediate action. Real-time dashboards and KPIs enable executives to have full transparency over the entire process and be able to monitor and track the safety of the entire workforce.


Let SAP SuccessFactors Visa and Permits Management help you take the complexity out of your safe return-to-the-workplace process.
