The digital personnel file for SAP® HCM

Bringing together what belongs together

Work contracts, letters of reference, personnel master data – the SAP®-based EASY digital personnel file provides information on every employee. It bundles all relevant data and documents and dovetails closely with SAP® Human Capital Management® (HCM). A sophisticated security concept based on the SAP® authorisation management ensures that sensitive personnel data don’t wind up in the wrong hands. Processes and approval procedures can be started directly from the file – even via smartphone, tablet, or other mobile device, if necessary.

The functions of the digital personnel file for SAP® HCM at a glance

Location independent and mobile

Location-independent access is possible via SAP® GUI, SAP® Webportal, SAP® Fiori®/HTML5, or the employee portal. The electronic personnel file also supports mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets.

Secure access

The special security requirements which apply to the handling of files and documents in human resources can be met effortlessly with the digital personnel file. Thus, for example, access rights are controllable down to the level of individual documents via SAP® rights and role management.

Digital personnel file for employees and managers

Via Employee and Manager Self-Services (ESS/MSS), you can both grant employees and managers access to the file and control the time-limited check-out with limited and logged access via the file check-out. That way, employees can revise their data directly or managers can grant approval and save a trip to the human resources department.

Checklists included

New talents want to make their contributions as full-fledged employees as quickly as possible. Therefore, it is essential to professionalise the systematic orientation and social integration of new employees. Our standard version already includes checklists for activities in the onboarding process, so that you can successfully onboard new employees easily.

Security and reporting for the GDPR

All activities in the digital personnel file are continually logged. You receive automatic emails about queue entries as well as a complete history of the last opened file (content). A complete overview of all file processes allows maximum transparency. A report on stored personal data makes the digital personnel file from EASY GDPR-ready.

Comprehensive document integration and creation

All documents, such as medical certificates, letters of reference, application documents, or even emails can be added easily to the personnel file via drag & drop. In addition, either early archiving via workflow or late archiving via bar code is possible.

Bidirectional access

The bidirectional integration of the file in SAP® HCM® (on-premises) and is standard. That way, access from both systems is displayed in the same electronic personnel file.
