SAP announces New Initiatives to Support Local Businesses to Enhance Employee Skillsets

SAP SE recently announced new initiatives to support local businesses to address current remote working challenges, helping them to provide employee skills training, onboarding and skills training as they reinvent themselves for long-term recovery.

Through SAP Litmos, its cloudbased eLearning management platform, and SAP SuccessFactors, its cloud human capital management solution, local businesses can tap on remote digital tools to enhance employees’ skillsets, strengthen employee engagement, even as organizations transform and redesign their business models. Both solutions available at subsidized rates for local SMEs from today.

With Singapore in Phase 2 of re-opening, remote work continues to be a norm, and offices are subject to safe management measures and restrictions. The demand for online employee training, which has spiked in recent months, is likely to persist as local businesses seek for learning management systems and ready-to-go content to engage and upskill remote working employees, including those who are unable to perform their usual physical job functions while at home.

AcePLP, a local engineering consultancy and one of Singapore’s most widely used Building Information Modelling (BIM) and Virtual Design and Construction (VDC) services provider, traditionally conducts face-to-face courses but has since shifted to an online learning platform to enhance the skillsets of its employees.

With the transition to remote work and an increased dependency on digital engagement, the SAP Litmos Learning Management System (LMS) acts as a connecting platform that keeps employees, customers and the extended enterprise connected. Over 21 million users in more than 130 countries and 28 languages use the LMS and online training courses to optimise their learning and development, improve performance, and monetise training.

Local businesses can leverage the cloud-based eLearning system to provide employees with pre-built courses and e-learning solutions from a robust course library via a a content management system, across topics including sales, operations, compliance, customer service & support.

Despite successfully transitioning their workforce to remote working, businesses need to find new ways to adapt and enhance employee engagement in the long-run, particularly in areas such as onboarding of new employees, tracking employee performance, ensuring efficient management of payroll. Additionally, re-skilling employees to drive new business models and operations are also key to future economic health.

SAP SuccessFactors, a cloud human capital management solution, helps businesses take traditional HR processes to the cloud, digitalizing and providing analytics on employee feedback management, core HR and payroll services, and adapt to fluctuating talent needs across recruitment, onboarding, performance, learning & development.

Local businesses have also been swift to leverage existing government grants to digitalize their workforce and support their employees’ development and wellbeing remotely, according to DDG, a SuccessFactors implementer. SMEs in Singapore can now benefit from SME Go Digital grants for SAP SuccessFactors.
