Mizuho OSI Undergoes SAP SuccessFactors Implementation


The SAP SuccessFactors implementation at Mizuho OSI, a frontrunner in the field of surgical patient positioning, is anticipated to streamline the company’s human resources (HR) operations and increase its overall productivity.

Mizuho OSI has been producing surgical tables and other products to prevent surgical pressure injuries since its inception in 1978. Hospitals and outpatient surgical centers all over the world rely on Mizuho’s cutting-edge solutions, which is a testimonial to the high-quality equipment the firm provides. Established in 1919 and located in Tokyo, Japan, Mizuho OSI is a wholly-owned unit of Mizuho Corporation.

Just last month, Mizuho OSI announced that it was one of just three silver-level recipients of the California Awards for Performance Excellence (CAPE) from The California Council for Excellence (CCE). In recognition of Mizuho OSI’s remarkable dedication to sustainable success through development, continuous improvement, and transformation leadership, the CCE has awarded them the prestigious award, which is based on the Baldrige Framework for Performance Excellence.

Mizuho OSI’s Vice President of Operations and Service Kevin Thorne has said that the pursuit of business excellence is important to the company’s long-term goals. He stated that they are honored to get such a high degree of recognition so early in their journey, especially because the Baldrige Criteria is the benchmark by which they have decided to evaluate themselves.

As part of Mizuho OSI’s ongoing efforts to stay ahead of the curve and maintain its position as a top player in the industry, the company has collaborated with HR Focal Point to implement SAP SuccessFactors solutions. These include:

  • SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting – The cloud-based software enables talent acquisition teams have access to the data, analytics, and time by consolidating application tracking, job posting, and candidate relationship management (CRM).
  • SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Marketing – By consolidating referrals and campaigns into a single platform, SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Marketing is able to provide a novel integrated strategy that enhances the complete candidate experience.
  • SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding (2.0) – New approaches to the onboarding process are taken by SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding 2.0, which is included in the SuccessFactors HXM Suite. The solution provides a supportive atmosphere for new recruits and internal transfers through automated and personalized processes.
  • SAP SuccessFactors Career Site Builder – An integral part of the platform, the Career Site Builder was introduced as a standard functionality. Partners use this feature to create a mobile-friendly site that includes all of the usual SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting Marketing tools.

Partnering with HR Focal Point for SAP SuccessFactors Implementation

Headquartered in Plano, Texas, HR Focal Point is a cutting-edge consulting and services firm for SAP SuccessFactors, focusing on helping businesses with the installation and maintenance of SAP’s Human Capital Management (SAP HCM) suite of products. With the help of SAP HCM solutions, clients can improve employee engagement across the board, create exciting new opportunities for employees at work, and become part of a community shaping the workplace of the future.

Mizuho OSI entrusted the implementation of its goals for an end-to-end integrated solution to HR Focal Point Consultants Julie DeLaTorre and Dwight Jones.  In order to accomplish Mizuho OSI’s goals, HR Focal Point helped deploy SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting, Recruiting Marketing, Onboarding (2.0), and Career Site Builder. While Mizuho had already implemented the SAP SuccessFactors Enterprise Bundle in its HR landscape, the company needed to make some adjustments so that its new HR department could use the software effectively.

Furthermore, the team at HR Focal Point offered consultancy and project management services, and they were able to finish the project on time in just eight months. Peter Nyame, Director of Human Resources at Mizuho OSI, praised the HR Focal Point team, saying they were quick to respond and produced excellent results.

Commenting on how the SAP SuccessFactors implementation improved their core HR processes, Nyame shared:

“The SuccessFactors Recruiting tool brought efficiencies to our Recruiters’ ability to source and engage the best talent while offering line-of-site recruiting analytics to provide intelligence and guidance along the entire hiring process.”

The partnership with Mizuho is a continuing one, and HR Focal Point specialists are now providing support for SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting, SAP SuccessFactors Onboarding, SAP SuccessFactors Employee Central, and SAP SuccessFactors Performance & Goals. According to Jennifer Becker, Vice President (VP) of Consulting Services at HR Focal Point, Mizuho OSI and HR Focal Point both have a strong interest in improving HR processes and systems.

“Mizuho is working diligently to create an engaging workforce and adding SAP SuccessFactors Recruiting and Onboarding is one more step in the ladder to success for them. We’re looking forward to continuing our partnership with Mizuho as they continue on their SAP SuccessFactors journey,” Becker added.
