Working with SAP SuccessFactors, Southwire’s HR function has become a more strategic partner of the business by supporting its growth, eliminating manual processes, servicing the needs of its employees and managers more efficiently, and containing costs to support the growing organization.
  • Canada Post, Better Business Results: The SAP SuccessFactors implementation at Canada Post was a major initiative that positively impacted all 65,000 employees in the organization, as well as franchises and partners. As part of this transformation, employees were moved to the next-gen SAP SuccessFactors platform, which provided a much improved user experience, helped develop a learning culture and translated into tangible business outcomes. As a result of adopting SAP SuccessFactors solutions, Canada Post achieved a number of business benefits, including enhanced training efficiency, improved user experience, expanded access to digital learning, greater scalability, improved collaboration, and richer reports and analytics.
  • Cascades, People Pioneer Award: Cascades, a $4 billion “Recovery, Packaging and Paper” company, implemented several SAP SuccessFactors solutions to improve performance management and employee engagement, including SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, SAP SuccessFactors Performance & Goals, SAP SuccessFactors Compensation Management and Variable Pay. Through these implementations, Cascades improved performance management to help managers engage in ongoing conversations with employees and create a culture of coaching to help employees navigate their careers. Employee engagement has increased and ignited the entire organization to move forward with more transformational initiatives to continue to make Cascades a best place to work.
  • Enersys, “All Heart” Award: EnerSys, which manufactures, markets and distributes industrial batteries, is committed to active community support and engagement with where it does business around the globe.

The company, which has implemented SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, facilitates teamwork globally by encouraging employees to get involved with the community, coach teams, sit on boards, etc. The company’s commitment to employee engagement and their local community earns them a well-deserved recognition with the HR Excellence “All Heart” Award.
