There is defined Default Value in the picklist label but it is still showing as blank.
The Default Value is expected to be loaded when no locale translation in the picklist.
SAP SuccessFactors HXM Suite
The Engineering team has an ongoing enhancement to improve how the system returns the value of a picklist. If the English US locale is enabled but does not have English label, the Default Label should return and should not pass any locale. This enhancement is expected to be deployed in 2H 2021 (2111) release.
