*Update* Beta Program: HXM Milestone Awards Beta Program

With 2H 2020, customers will be able to manage these programs in a simple and automated way using SAP SuccessFactors Reward and Recognition. We held interactive kickoff sessions in mid-September. Based on the input we received during these meetings, we understand that the Compensation Cycle is getting started and it will be a busy time for our customers. With this update, the SuccessFactors Rewarding Product Management team has decided to postpone the customer program and re-launch it in the next 6 months.

Note that we are still moving ahead with our Partner Beta Program. For more information about the Partner Program, please send an email to our SAP Milestone Awards Beta Program team here or sign up on our Influence Page here to join!
