The Challenge

Managing a rapidly growing workforce and changing work environment

In Korean, “Yanolja” means “Hey, let’s play!” With more than 38 million downloads of its app and 11 million users booking accommodations in 170 countries, Yanolja Co. Ltd. is South Korea’s biggest global leisure booking platform.

 

A modern startup success story, Yanolja’s rising popularity also came with growing pains. The company’s HR team needed to act fast to support a rapidly expanding workforce and help manage changing work environments and corporate cultures.

The Solution

Digitalizing processes to streamline HR management

To support its rapid growth, Yanolja realized it was time to build an HR system that could efficiently integrate key talent management tasks, scale flexibly, and provide data-driven insights to support a successful HR strategy that aligns with business goals.

 

With help from SAP SuccessFactors solutions, Yanolja implemented a cloud-based HR system that features the scalability and agility of the cloud as well as mobile capabilities that allow anytime, anywhere access to employee information and tasks.

 

Yanolja uses the SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central and SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central Payroll solutions to serve as a central source for employee data, enabling individuals and departments to manage their own data from anywhere. The SAP SuccessFactors Performance & Goals solution allows employees and managers to cascade company goals and manage reviews, while the SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting solution helps make it faster and easier to attract top talent.

 

To ensure that new and existing employees are paid quickly and accurately, Yanolja uses the SAP SuccessFactors Compensation solution to automate all types of employee payments. Deployment and integration with SAP S/4HANA and third-party collaboration and budgeting systems help ensure HR processes are smooth and efficient.

The Result

Achieving more than 95% employee data accuracy and complete visibility

With integrated HR processes and real-time access to accurate master data, Yanolja saves time on HR tasks enterprise-wide and is able to pursue a data-driven HR strategy.

 

SAP SuccessFactors solutions help Yanolja get the most from its growing workforce by measuring and improving productivity based on real-time reporting and empowering individuals and departments to manage their own data from anywhere with self-service tools. Continuous and standardized performance and goal management supports productivity improvements, with a 100% rise in data accuracy, while an increase of more than 50% in digital time and attendance tracking leads to more than 90% data accuracy.

 

As a global startup, with more than 120% revenue growth for online leisure bookings over the past five years, Yanolja has a bright future ahead with a scalable platform to support its continued growth and success.
