Successfactors Onboarding


SuccessFactors Onboarding, which is the most recent addition to the SuccessFactors HCM Suite, supports the onboarding of new employees into your organization, as well as offboarding and cross-boarding (transfers). Onboarding is an automated solution that supports the workflows associated with the onboarding process and provides a one-stop-shop of resources, activities, and required documentation for new joiners. It addresses the compliance-driven activities associated with onboarding, as well as a more strategic set of activities:


connecting, informing, and empowering new hires even before their first day on the job with the right tools, content, and connections to start driving business results faster.

It leverages the SuccessFactors HCM suite platform, as well as existing functionality found in solutions such as Employee Central and SAP Jam and is therefore easy to use and intuitive for individuals to quickly begin onboarding activities. It significantly reduces the time and effort required by managers and HR professionals to manually manage the onboarding process and ensure that forms are completed correctly. SuccessFactors Onboarding also provides a complete set of new hire activities specifically designed to help them assimilate as quickly as possible.

In addition, it acts as a starting point for other HR and talent processes, such as Goal Management, Performance Management, and Learning. And with the possibility to provide access even before the new employee has started with your company, new hires can hit the ground running and begin making a meaningful contribution  as soon as they arrive on their first day.


The Onboarding solution is based on a structured yet configurable onboarding process and contains functionality to suit this type of process. The Onboarding process involves several players, including the hiring manager, new hire, HR business partner, new hire buddy, and possibly others. The solution features the following functionalities:

  • Introduction wizard
  • Pre-hire verification steps
  • Introductory information
  • Activities
  • Paperwork
  • Configurable workflows
  • Email notifications
  • Integration with Goal Management, Learning, Development, Recruiting Execution, and Employee Central
  • Tracking of manager’s onboarding process to identify best processes
