As Global Director, Solution Marketing at SAP SuccessFactors, Kim is responsible for driving strategic marketing for the SAP SuccessFactors Human Experience Management (HXM) Suite, with a special focus on diversity, equity and inclusion, health and well-being and our partner ecosystem.

She has spent over 25 years in the HR technology industry in both small and large organizations managing complex projects across geographies and time zones, running a multi-million-dollar line of business, and being the best leader and teammate she can be.

Her strengths include a keen focus on results, developing informative and interesting content, and creating a collaborative environment where the best ideas are fostered to create solutions that help individuals and organizations thrive.

Engaged employees are more productive employees, and more importantly, they’re happier people. And it just so happens that keeping them engaged is a big reason you come to work in the morning. You’re in charge of the experience they have every day, and managing that experience effectively makes all the difference. Imagine, for example, if you could tap into the moments that matter most to employees. You’d be able to support them, to address their concerns or, at the very least, authentically empathize with them – and both go a long way toward a better work experience.

This is what human experience management (HXM) is all about, and that means taking an employee-first approach to everything you do. It’s not about shuffling resources and filling roles; it’s about knowing who has the right skills, who wants to improve, and who’s ready. It’s about connecting effortlessly and communicating openly across your entire organization. It’s about guiding people through monumental (and miniscule) changes and giving them a simple source for every answer while taking repetitive tasks off your team’s to-do list. It’s about how people feel about the work they do, and feeling better means doing better. 

You have the data to do all of this – data that gives you a seat at the table and a voice across the company. HXM gives you the means to make each employee’s job more meaningful, their work more engaging. And when you can create that kind of experience for every employee, your entire organization will experience wins.
