Inside SuccessFactors Learning

Delivery Manager – SuccessFactors/1218 Global HR Solutions 

SuccessFactors Learning is a comprehensive, integrated, flexible and innovative Learning Management System that improves business results, boosts productivity, and increases organizational competitiveness by developing leaders, assuring compliance, and creating a culture of continuous learning. Providing support for instructor-led training, e-learning, virtual learning, exams, certifications, and optional extended learning capabilities, SFL is easy for employees to use and for learning professionals to administer.

It is integrated with Onboarding to offer new employees a personalized onboarding plan with the right courses to speed time to productivity, with Goal Management to enable employees to search and select the right courses to support the attainment of their goals, with Succession and Development to help employees plan the right learning for their future jobs.

To maximize the full potential of learning and training programs, companies must support and reinforce a culture of continuous learning. Integrated with SAP Jam, SFL extends formal, instructor-led training where learners get auto-enrolled and do pre-work, and can discuss topics before, during, and after class. Social, informal, and mobile learning improves the effectiveness and efficiency of in-house development programs while helping employees advance their careers and drive business. SFL is an innovative application which uses an auto-assignments feature to dynamically assign and/or unassign items, curricula, catalogs, and roles to learners. It can also assign/unassign or recommend individuals’ job and role-specific training. SFL has prebuilt turnkey integration with market leading OCN partners, including Coursera, Lynda, Open Sesame, Open HPI, Udacity, Harvard, and more. Therefore, no custom development is required for content integration with these vendors and it is easy to procure a library of courses.

SFL supports company employees and can also be extended to a contingent workforce without having to create employee records for them on core HR. With SuccessFactors Learning ‘Marketplace’, learning organizations can attract and satisfy their customers by selling training, providing information, and enabling the business ecosystem to more effectively sell, support, service, and/or implement products and services or drive revenue from the training organization. Built-in reporting and talent-insight features deliver out-of-the-box, actionable workforce intelligence that drives tangible business value. SFL enables businesses to measure and track certification activities using dashboards and reports that provide analysis of course completions, learning projections, registrations, and curriculum status. SFL provides support for all four levels of the Kirkpatrick Model of learning evaluation. SuccessFactors also offers a validated learning environment for highly regulated industries which need to meet compliance with regulatory requirements for certain industries, particularly the pharmaceutical industry.
