Software AG GB 2013. englisch

GroupManagementReport structures and incentive mechanisms are the core elements of Softare AG’s global HR strategy. Software AG created an internal talent management platform to support collabora- tion across departments and countries, called Career4U. It allows employees and their managers to agree on custom- ized development road maps, define and evaluate objec- tives, document the results of annual reviews and elaborate follow-up plans. Recruiting and integration New employees were integrated and trained with the help of internally developed onboarding process tools. In addi- tion, our hiring processes were further harmonized and optimized. The New Hire Sales Boot Camps, which were established in 2012 to boost sales, led to tangible sales successes in 2013. Those who completed Sales Boot Camp scored significantly better in all areas evaluated than members of a comparison group of hired Sales staff who did not go through the employees are distributed according to functions and re- gions as follows: The enormous pressure to change caused by the Digital Revolution, the massive investments in sales, marketing and partner management as well as the acquisition of five technology companies all influenced Software AG’s human ­resources strategy in fiscal 2013. The employees and man- agers in our Human Resources (HR) department face ever growing demands due to the constantly changing work place. Flexibility and innovative thinking are required, while a balance between defined structures and creative freedom must be achieved. Software AG’s global HR strategy therefore focuses on con- tinuously aligning HR processes and activities with the Com- pany’s goals. As a trailblazer for the Digital Enterprise and to be an important partner for our customers, Software AG also takes this role to heart internally. All global HR processes are digital and scalable from end to end.
