SAP HCM (Human Capital Management), also called SAP HR (Human Resource management), is one of the most popular and demanding SAP ERP Module that plays very important role in the monitoring and management of entire Human Resource operations like Payroll, Recruitment, Performance management and Termination, Time & General Administration processes of any organization.

The main objective of the SAP Human Resources (SAP HR / HCM) module is to process the employee data of the organizations according to their business necessities. It is integrated with other SAP modules and peripheral systems.

The Human Resource module uses a structure of data grouped together called info types. The Personnel Administration (PA) sub module helps the professionals to track the employee master data, work schedules and salary information. The Personnel Development (PD) functionality concentrates on employee skills, qualifications and career plans of the organization. Finally, the Payroll sub modules process the employee attendance, gross salary and tax calculations, and payments to employees and third party vendors.

SAP HCM module provides organizations in all industries worldwide the tools needed to manage their most important asset: people. The solution equips executives, HR professionals, and line managers to hire the best talent, as well as train and cultivate the skills of their workforce by understanding where their workforce's talents lie and in turn aligning the goals of the employees with those of the organization. In a nutshell, automation of all core human resource processes, such as employee administration, payroll, and legal reporting, increases efficiency and supports compliance with changing global and local regulations.

The SAP HR/HCM module integrates with other modules such as SAP FI. Document transactions occurring within the SAP HR/HCM course (personnel management, time management, travel management and payroll etc.) generate account postings via account determination tables from the FI module.

Key components of SAP HCM module are:

  1. Organizational Management - Organizational Management includes Personnel development, Personnel cost planning and event management.

  2. Time Management - Time management includes time recording, attendance, time schedule, shift management, etc.

  3. Personnel Administration - Personnel Administration includes personal and organizational structure, Infotypes, integration with time and payroll, etc.

I have two degrees in Law-LLB and LLM. I want to work as an HR in the UK, but not sure what qualifications do I need for this?

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
