Implement a best-in-class payroll solution

Employee experience matters, especially in times of disruption. It is more critical than ever to be able to visualize and fine-tune your peoples’ experiences in order to retain your talent and make your workplace welcoming, whether individuals are working locally or remotely. The SAP SuccessFactors Human Experience Management (HXM) suite is the best solution we’ve found for workforce data, offering support for all people processes from hire to retire, including employee experience, time management, and people analytics.

Based on SAP’s more than 30 years of global payroll-leading practices, Employee Central Payroll is fully integrated into the SuccessFactors Core HR module, serving more than 100 million people globally. All employee master data is stored in one place, which is the HRIS core module, called Employee Central. Storing all master data in one place ensures compliance, better data quality, increased governance, and a reduction of cost and efforts in maintenance.

Compliant, integrated, and customizable

As with the entire SAP SuccessFactors suite, Employee Central Payroll is also GDPR compliant, and it offers to manage and automate master data privacy and retention policies that uphold compliance with regional, federal, and local rules to protect all users’ data privacy. It’s an ideal platform for global payroll consolidation, with local support for close to 50 countries with local tax regulations including rich standard tax reporting.

GP Strategies can help you implement, maintain, customize, and enhance your payroll module, fine-tuning the solution for your specific processes, procedures, and third-party integrations, so it can best support a world-class employee experience for all involved.
