(Nasdaq: SFSF) today announced that UK health and leisure chain, the Esporta Group, has signed a new three year agreement to deploy the SuccessFactors platform to all 3,000 employees across the group, driving better execution and greater alignment against the company’s restructured operating plans and new ownership.  


“We have been through some structural changes recently, and decided to leverage our initial investment in SuccessFactors to give us greater visibility into the business, and help drive growth, customer satisfaction and employee retention,” said David Leatherbarrow, Chief Operating Officer at Esporta Group.  ”We’ve already done a great deal of customisation of the SuccessFactors platform.
