1. Overview
Organizations that are able to manage Career and Development Planning within their organization are able to
enhance their understanding of their own environment as well as plan for future expected workforce trends, such
as; the ageing workforce, tenure profiles that are at high risk of turning over, demographics/diversity of different
business units and the percent of disposable workforce across different business units. These organizations are
better equipped to navigate such transitions.

It is also critical for organizations to understand their workforce profile and how the external market may influence
future availability of critical capabilities.

2. Drill to Detail
Drill to Detail functionality is provided via the SuccessFactors website and allows users to build data queries that
return the details of the individual employees meeting the criteria of the query. Using these results and the
standard website Query Workspace, analytical users can see how the transactional data feeds they provide to
SuccessFactors are transformed into the metrics presented on their Human Capital website.

Drill to Detail enables power users to quickly isolate individual pieces of data and to verify which employee data
records are included within a particular measure. It is also a valuable tool for project teams who routinely conduct
verification tasks via the website or who are required to handle requests from casual website users for
transactional information.

The Drill to Detail functionality (if applicable) is represented within this document using the following symbol .

Note: If the employee has multiple distinct contributions towards a metric (e.g. two absences within the same
month) there are different ways in which this can be displayed within the drill to detail output. In these instances
the result may not match the counts that are being drill to detail.
