We are less than a month away from SAPPHIRE® NOW and ASUG Annual Conference and I hope you are as excited as I am for a week filled with keynotes, seminars, meet-ups, and education sessions. With this much anticipation, it can be hard to wait for May 16 to come. Luckily, the ASUG HR Community has plenty of content to keep you occupied until we all converge on Orlando for ASUG Annual Conference.
I might be getting a little ahead of myself, though. Have you registered for 2016 ASUG Annual Conference? If not, you can register here. Better yet, ASUG members get a discounted rate. Not a member? ASUG is now offering an individual membership for SAP® SuccessFactors® users. Get the resources you need on your terms. If you want to become a member, contact Membership Services.
Complimentary Pre-Conference Seminar Alert – Registration is now open for our Monday, May 16 ASUG Pre-Conference Seminars at ASUG Annual Conference. You might want to hurry, though, because we have a special offer for you that we know will sell-out quickly. Thanks to our friends at Deloitte and hyperCision, we are offering “Recharge HR: Stretch Your Talent Mindset” free of charge. Don’t miss this chance to explore the future of IT and HR with author and futurist, Dr. Karie Willyerd.

Following will be an open discussion about all things performance and goals.
