<p><strong>San Mateo, Calif. &mdash; Aug. 29</strong><br />SuccessFactors, a global provider of on-demand performance and talent management solutions, has announced the availability of the new version of its Employee Profile solution, an online, companywide directory that applies social networking concepts to the business context of managing and engaging employees at work. </p><p>Employee Profile extends SuccessFactors&#39; performance and talent management platform to facilitate greater collaboration among today&rsquo;s often disparate or mobile workforces while giving managers and executives greater insight into the strengths, talents and potential within an organization.<br /><br />Unlike the static employee directories found in traditional HRIS systems, which simply include basic information such as the employee&rsquo;s name, title and compensation information, Employee Profile connects employees dynamically and supports talent decisions by delivering relevant, community-enriched employee information. </p><p>It enables companies and employees to populate directory profiles with a rich set of information such as individual skill sets or competencies, languages spoken, career goals, key accomplishments, compensation history and leadership potential. </p><p>Employee Profile is designed to serve as the &ldquo;go-to&rdquo; internal network in a company for everything from finding an employee&rsquo;s e-mail and mobile phone number to connecting several complementary talent pools into a single team to handle a specific company project to identifying the person with the skills, experience and interest needed to take on a new role.<br /><br />The rich information set is presented in a highly intuitive, easy-to-use interface that is as engaging and fun to use as today&rsquo;s popular consumer-focused social media platforms. </p><p>By combining the interactivity, ease of use and connectedness of a social network with highly valuable, contextual performance data, Employee Profile delivers an addictive, highly valuable solution that takes the concept of an employee directory to a far more meaningful and strategic level. </p><p>For managers and executives, Employee Profile provides a powerful new way to understand and gain insight into the talents, interests and potential of employees throughout an organization. </p><p>Armed with greater visibility into a company&rsquo;s talent pool, managers are able to make smarter decisions in how they recruit, form teams to solve business problems and tackle new challenges.<br /><br />&ldquo;Today, the only employee directory we have is limited in the information it offers and provides only a fractional view into our employee base,&rdquo; said Terry Fox, Direct Energy director of HRIS systems. &ldquo;SuccessFactors&rsquo; Employee Profile would give employees a network to express their skills and interests while also providing a platform to engage with other people in the company to collaborate on projects and share knowledge. </p><p>”This is a quantum leap forward for what, to date, has essentially amounted to a static phone book that was not integrated with our company&rsquo;s performance and talent management system.&rdquo;</p><p>Rob Bernshteyn, SuccessFactors vice president of global product marketing and management, agrees. </p><p>&ldquo;Our platform is about creating an everyday tab in the business browser to help people perform better, feel more engaged and ultimately happier as employees,&rdquo; Bernshteyn said. &ldquo;Employee Profile extends our steadfast commitment to flattening traditional organizational structures, giving people more voice in their companies and helping companies create cultures based on collaboration, performance and constant engagement. Every employee has a story, and we&rsquo;ve designed Employee Profile to let them share it, so that they don&rsquo;t feel like just another number in a payroll database.&rdquo;</p>
