Convincing means making the benefits tangible

Together with its partner tts, Bystronic was able to convince its employees of the benefits of the cloud-based SAP SuccessFactors solution. The secret of success: implementing processes that are suitable for all locations worldwide, while at the same time offering the option of responding to specific requirements. This strengthened the digital mindset of the entire workforce.

Industry leader needs the best

As part of its strategy, the Bystronic Group is striving for annual organic sales growth of more than 5%. This can only be achieved with top employees. To attract them, Bystronic is positioning itself as a modern and attractive employer. This also means rolling out the red carpet for talented people and making the application and onboarding process as easy as possible. After the implementation of SAP SuccessFactors failed a few years ago, the high-tech company took a new approach. Instead of throwing employees in at the deep end, the company is bringing them on board.

Global HRIS-Manager at Bystronic

Master plan with ambassadors and partners

This was achieved by creating the new position of Global HRIS Manager and involving tts as a partner. Right from the start, Bystronic and tts formed a perfectly harmonizing tandem. Their recipe for success: configuring the modules precisely to the needs of the respective users with the necessary expertise and explaining the benefits in an approachable and engaging manner. In this way, reservations are quickly dispelled. 

Another success factor: tts did not implement the solution as a complete package, but introduced the individual modules step by step. First came the Performance & Goals module, followed by the four other modules: Compensation, Recruiting, Succession & Development, and Learning. 

After several years of using SAP SuccessFactors Learning, Performance & Goals, Compensation, and Recruiting, the journey continued with the global implementation of the Employee Central module, which took the HR IT architecture to a new level. This laid the foundation for consistent data management across the company, process compliance, and further expansion of HR self services.

Fireworks of benefits

The HR team experienced the benefits of the modules shortly after they were introduced. What used to take weeks of Excel spreadsheets and tedious coordination is now just a click away. All HR processes are standardized across the company and run with maximum efficiency and transparency. Recruiting and onboarding are much faster, while administrative costs are reduced. 

But it's not just the HR department that is relieved, the budget is also relieved - other license and SAP consultant costs are eliminated, as well as expenses for servers and maintenance personnel. What's more, training costs are kept to a minimum because anyone who needs support can simply click their way through the user-specific tutorials. 

The bottom line is that the wealth of benefits has strengthened the digital mindset. Users are impressed with the power of the solution.
