Once you decide to hire an applicant for certain positions in e.g. Germany, the works council needs to be involved. The information that is crucial for its members supports them in ensuring that all applicants have been selected fairly. It enables them to verify that all anti-discrimination directives have been followed. Hence a detailed report of all applicants is essential. This is mostly achieved by granting a role permission in SAP SuccessFactors to the works council, displaying the whole audit trail and unnecessary Email communication within the application process, which may lead to additional work for all parties, potentially leading to a bottle neck within the hiring process.
