ROC helps University of Salford launch the first SuccessFactors Cloud Solution in Higher Education



The University of Salford has gone live with its online performance and development review (e-PDR) solution, as scheduled and under budget.

The solution will be based on the industry leading SuccessFactors HCM suite and will bring a much needed real time sharing of information. It aims to complement the established PDR cycle and empower managers to align their team’s objectives to the University’s strategic plan as well as support the development of employees at all levels.

The University is establishing a stable high performing culture and deployment of this solution provides two key elements to support this:

  1. A clear and well defined competency framework.
  2. An e-PDR platform that is state of the art as well as easy to access and use from anywhere.

Together these are expected to provide the support required to enable the University to build teams focussed on service excellence and academic improvement.

The project will see over 1,000 professional services and senior leadership employees across the University introduced to the system for this year. Users can access the system wherever they have an Internet connection and are using the OneLogin service to make the access simple and seamless.

"I’d like to thank the University of Salford for their professional attitude in delivering the project which included SuccessFactors. I think the staff & University will benefit from a solution that is accessible anywhere, easy to use and provides a collaborative platform to monitor and manage their employee’s performance and development.- Stephen Burr, Practice Manager, ROC UK.

"Our new online performance and development solution will provide a tool for managers and employees to be able to articulate how their role fits into the overall strategic plan. It will ensure that conversations on performance and development are ongoing thus facilitating employee engagement, productivity and success.- Yvonne Wolstenholme (Project Sponsor), Associate Director HR Strategy & Operations, Human Resources, University of Salford
