How SILVA Medical Improved their Recruitment process and Candidate Experience through HR Digitalisation

Read more about how SAP SuccessFactors implementation and HR digitalisation improved recruitment and employee feedback in the medical non-profit. 

As the healthcare industry in Belgium is mature and there is a war for talent, SILVA Medical, a Belgian hospital group, faced issues in its recruitment processes and candidate experience. The non-profit has always had strong assets in terms of attracting talent, but these were not highlighted, and its communication left room for improvement. The HR department wanted to catch up with a delay in the digitalisation of the organisation

      Why did SILVA Medical Require a Recruitment Process? 

      The healthcare industry is a mature market in Belgium and there is a war for talent going on. SILVA Medical's HR department intended to catch up with a delay in the digitalisation of the organisation. The recruitment process was not centralised, nor compliant with GDPR. SILVA Medical was looking to stand out in its recruitment efforts and be more in tune with the feedback of its current employees to strengthen employer branding and candidate experience. 

        SILVA Medical's Goals  

        • Align and digitalise the recruiting process, centralising it and ensuring GDPR compliance 
        • Improve employer branding and candidate experience  
        • Implement an internal communication tool to be more in tune with employee feedback

              Key Factors to the Project's Success 

              Excellent cooperation between the teams from SILVA medical and SD Worx SAP solutions played a key role in the project's success. We put in place a strong implementation methodology based on SAP activate. Clear communication, frequent touchpoints (organised project governance), and SharePoint-based solutions made collaboration easier. 

              Effective communication and flexibility were also key. Deliverables for training and documentation were set in place during the initiation phase. The methodology includes documentation and training throughout the entire process. 

              The teams at SILVA Medical and SD Worx SAP solutions are both focused on solutions. Both parties openly discussed requests, priorities, and budget constraints. New requirements that arise will be managed by the evolutive maintenance covered by our ProCare support contract in place.

                By the middle of May 2022, Learning became operational. In early 2023, we plan to integrate Onboarding and Performance & Goals. We are thrilled to continue collaborating with SILVA Medical and improving their HRIS implementation, allowing them to focus on becoming an even better employer.
