Mastering HR & Payroll with SAP Solutions

The world is changing. In the last two years more data was produced globally than in all of history.

HR is moving beyond its operational role and is fast transforming into a core and disciplined strategic business function. Technology like SuccessFactors, Fiori and S/4HANA are the essentials tools and enablers of this transformation.  Against this backdrop we have created Mastering HR & Payroll with SAP Solutions.

It’s an Exciting Time to Be in Human Resources

HR continues to face big changes in how people work and even the definition of a worker: permanent, temporary, or somewhere in between. Questions to consider include: How do you engage every employee in a workforce that often comprises five distinct generations? How do you standardise and simplify global HR processes to drive out cost and complexity? How do you manage a 'just in time' workforce which comprises more and more contract labour? How do you finally solve the 'war for talent'? It’s an exciting time to be in the HR area. In this keynote address, you’ll learn in more detail about some of the key trends impacting HR and how SAP’s HCM solutions can help you deliver the best HR services to your organisation, leveraging the solutions and delivery models that make the most sense and provide the best value for your organisation.

Transforming HR & Payroll at Woolworths – Putting the People Back Into the Process

But from the very beginning, Woolworths has focused its efforts on using technology as a catalyst for much broader change. Find out how the implementation of the SuccessFactors HR suite, and SAP Payroll in the cloud, was the enabler for transforming not only the HR capability, but the very relationship between manager and employee.

Performance Review GPS – It’s Not Where You’ve Been, It’s Where You’re Going!

Instead of the dreaded and outdated annual performance review (a time drain which nobody feels good about, doesn’t provide timely feedback and rarely motivate better performance) Steelcase went from a form-based, “check the box”, rating system to a future-focused coaching model that develops employees along their career path to achieve better business results. Learn a completely new approach to performance management including how to get executive buy-in. Truly a win/win.

Taking the Plunge: Merging Public and Private Sector Payrolls

How does one of Australia’s most trusted companies embark upon an integration between their SAP public sector payroll and one of their private sector subsidiary payrolls? Very bloody carefully! Join this interactive session to discuss concepts, ideas and how this vision could be brought to fruition through considering what we are trying to achieve, how to gain support from senior management, the HR architecture landscape and limitations – then the next (possible) steps.

The Rise-and-Rise of the Australian Contingent Worker

As the percentage of Australian contract workers increases so will payroll complexity – and large scale organisations will face challenges such as management of the influx and out flux of contingent labour, ensuring payment is accurate and on time, ensuring professional development and delivering the right work experience. SAP Time and Attendance by WorkForce Software is already helping La Trobe University to manage large-scale complexity in the management of its Sessional Academic workforce.  Learn how to manage complexity, and deliver successful outcomes from better employee engagement to an enhanced workplace experience.

Reimagining User Experience Through Form Automation

Working within a complex dynamic business and industry, there was a key driver for efficiency through simplification, standardisation and automation. Through form automation, Bluescope were able to deliver results and benefits to the business instantaneously - including cost savings, turnaround time and improved accuracy in our HR master data. It was the focus on the user experience that drove the look and feel of the form causing widespread optimisation of end-to-end HR and payroll processes.

Using Social Tools to Drive Change In Your Organisation

In our private lives, most people are at least aware of, if not using, a variety of different types of social media to 'stay in the know' and to 'be connected'. But many organisations are still coming to terms with how to leverage the benefits of these tools for internal collaboration. If you're involved in a project or a change initiative, you may be keen to expand your arsenal to make use of social tools internally. However, there can be a number of pitfalls that you don't normally see with traditional engagement tools. Using real examples of the use of social collaboration tools in the implementation of a major SAP project, Greg will show how you can hit the ground running when you integrate social into your change management plan. Greg has been dealing with technology ever since joining the Royal Australian Air Force as a pilot. Although he doesn't claim to have 'mastered' technology, he has devoted much of the last 15 years of his career to working with project teams as they strive to deliver improvements into their businesses. He has a particular passion for change and enjoys helping people adopt change with confidence.

Trust – Mindset – Courage

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to ski down a mountain at 100km/hr? How you might do this when you’re vision impaired and being instructed by someone else acting as your eye sight? Would you have the courage to trust someone when they literally take your life into their hands? At the age of 17, Jessica was diagnosed with a rare, degenerative eye disease, impacting her sporting dreams as a netballer, and at the age of 21, by chance, found the world of Paralympic sport. In 2008, banned from competing at the Beijing Paralympics after being deemed too sighted, she continued to lose her sight and later became Australia’s first female winter Paralympic medallist in 2010. It’s somewhat ironic that the expert who might lead us into this future is one with low vision but an acute foresight around what it will take to thrive.

Workforce Empowerment: Tools & Techniques That Transform People

How do you begin the process of empowering your team members? Suncorp wanted their staff members to feel empowered to own the solutions to business problems rather than to always follow procedure and operate within the limits of their role.

In this 3 hour hands on workshop you’ll go beyond the startling realisation that SAP’s Query tool can do far far more than you think to actually setting up your own infosets & queries starting with getting the basics right and ending up with complex & interactive reports that you’ve always been told were the preserve of ABAP developers or add on tools & reporting platforms.

Inspiring Internal Trust in Your Data – Making Identity Management Sexy

At CCC, an in-house developed phone list by default became a de facto source of truth for "who works here", causing issues and debates about FTE reporting between different departments.

This has not only created a significant trust boost but also unintended positive consequences including reduced error handling, new occupancy reporting for facility management and dynamic building consent reporting.
