SuccessFactors Platform Deployed Globally Across Five Countries in Four Languages to Thousands of Executives and Managers

Paris, France – 15 July 2009 - SuccessFactors, Inc. (NASDAQ:SFSF), the global leader in on-demand performance and talent management solutions, today announced that Veolia Environmental Services, part of the Veolia Environment Group, has selected and deployed SuccessFactors’ Performance and Talent Management Suite, including Employee Profile, Performance Management, Total Goal Management and Succession Planning modules. Veolia Environmental Services has deployed SuccessFactors to almost 3,000 executives and managers across five countries. The project is part of a wider initiative to enable better line of sight for succession planning, formalize objectives, link performance and compensation, and facilitate mobility across different geographies and departments.

With 2007 revenues of €9.2 billion, Veolia Environmental Services is the world leader in waste management. With operations on every continent and more than 100,032 employees, the company provides customized solutions in waste management: provision of complete cleaning, waste management and logistical services for local public authority, industrial and commercial clients ; sorting and treatment of hazardous and non-hazardous waste; waste recovery as energy, organic matter and recycled raw materials.

“We were previously using a paper based system with data compiled in Excel spreadsheets, however this made it difficult to conduct any in-depth analysis and was time consuming,” said Laëtitia de Montgolfier, Veolia Environmental Services. “We selected SuccessFactors because of its flexibility and the ability to customize it to our specific requirements in the Enterprise Cloud. With the SuccessFactors dashboard, we can make better use of the data we capture, and can conduct more comprehensive analysis and business planning. The organizational charts and supporting data also provide us with better line of sight for Succession Planning across our internal talent pool.”

Veolia Environmental Services has deployed SuccessFactors to its managers in France, Egypt, Italy, Norway, Israel, in four languages, and plans additional deployments over the coming months (UK, Switzerland, North America).

“Veolia Environmental Services is a large company which was built as a result of mergers, acquisitions and organic growth,” added Laetitia de Montgolfier. “There have historically been different company systems and processes from different parts of the business which didn’t always communicate with one another. One of the added benefits of SuccessFactors has been facilitating better communication between different parts of the business to enhance mobility across departments and regions.”

Lars Dalgaard, CEO of SuccessFactors added, “Veolia Environmental Services is another great example of an European based company that is harnessing the SuccessFactors platform to help manage its growth and strategy execution globally. The ability to easily deploy SuccessFactors in multiple countries and numerous languages is a direct result of our Enterprise Cloud based software model. We look forward to helping Veolia to prosper as it continues to plan and execute on its global expansion. SuccessFactors continues to be one of the few next generation software companies with the largest deployments which reach every employee within an organization – we look forward to continuing to develop our relationship with Veolia,”
