Hey, this is Angela Colantuono, the Senior Vice President of SAP SuccessFactors Asia Pacific & Japan. Korea is a hot market right now, but they’re facing some challenges when it comes to competition for talent and productivity. The country’s got low economic growth rates, an aging population, and a lack of high-tech experts. It’s tough out there.
In this increasingly digital world, businesses need tech solutions to stay sharp and innovative. But they also need skilled talent and leadership to make the most of those technologies. Managing investments in digital solutions and talent can be a tricky balance, but we’re here to help.
We’ve got some big plans for upskilling professionals by 2025, and we’re seeing some major growth in active learners in Asia Pacific & Japan, especially in Korea. Our partnership with Coursera is really making a difference.
At SAP TechEd, we’ve been talking about using generative AI to unlock employee potential. We’re bringing intelligent technologies to the front-end, making processes faster and easier for employees and HR teams.
Our SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite is all about helping organizations address the skills gap, elevate the employee experience, and inform every people decision. We’re focusing on skills-based hiring and making sure organizations have what they need to accurately assess their workforce.
We’re also putting people first by helping employees manage their growth portfolio and receive personalized talent development recommendations. Through AI, we’re tailoring learning experiences to meet people’s specific needs, paving the way for greater diversity, equity, and inclusion.
We’re proud to be supporting Korean innovation and helping businesses build future-ready workforces. Our SAP Cloud portfolio is serving over 200 million users worldwide, and we’re here to help Korean enterprises transform their employee experience and develop their people.
It’s a wild world out there, but we’re excited to keep innovating in the HR space and helping businesses create personalized, people-centric workplaces. And of course, we’ve got a special focus on Korea. Let’s make it happen!
