(NASDAQ: SFSF), the global leader in on-demand performance and talent management solutions, today announced that Cadbury Schweppes has deployed SuccessFactors’ Performance Management and Goal Management solutions to 11,000 of its employees, across business units throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific, in 10 languages.

“Our goals to simplify our performance management process, embed the global standards and reduce administration have been achieved,” said Julia Freeman, director, People Capability and Process, Cadbury Schweppes. “We can now focus on deriving more value from the talent management activities of feedback, coaching and development without having to worry about the mechanics of the process.”

SuccessFactors’ solutions will play a fundamental role in helping Cadbury Schweppes align its employees with business goals and develop consistent standards for conducting global employee performance appraisals. In deploying SuccessFactors, the company’s leaders and managers have advanced tools for elevating developmental discussions with colleagues and increasing employee engagement. The solutions offer support for a wide variety of languages, are easy to implement and train users on, and are scalable to grow with Cadbury Schweppes as the company’s requirements evolve.

SuccessFactors performance and talent management software includes recruiting management, goal management, succession management, 360-degree review, compensation planning, learning and development, and analytics and reporting applications. The solution creates a company-wide network of information related to employee performance, including skill-sets, interests, career aspirations, ability to relocate, experience, languages spoken and more. By providing deep, real-time, company-wide visibility into such critical performance data, companies are able to make better, more informed decisions about how to promote, recruit, compensate, reward and manage their entire employee base.
