Guests: Meg Bear, Chief Product Officer and Amy Wilson, SVP of Products and Design

This week, we spoke with Meg Bear and Amy Wilson about Human Experience Management (HXM), and their vision and strategy behind it.

– The move from HCM to HXM

– The philosophy behind HXM and the importance of employee experience

– How to create opportunities for new skills training

– SAP’s acquisition of SwoopTalent

Focusing on employee experience gives your organization a competitive edge. SAP SuccessFactors designs and builds each solution with that in mind. They created and launched Human Experience Management (HXM) to put people at the center of business strategy and operations. SAP SuccessFactors develops employees by listening to them in real time. It serves up development opportunities and mentoring by looking at programs from a bottom-up perspective. 

This employee-first approach goes a long way in our new world of work. It provides opportunities for employees to feel cared about and supported. SAP SuccessFactors changes the way organizations think about work by focusing on the “X” in HXM and moments that matter. These highly personalized moments affect the employee experience significantly throughout the organization and throughout the employee lifecycle. Evolving this strategy allows your organization to create purpose with your employees. It gives them the tools to do their best work.
