In the spirit of yesterday’s Philadelphia Chapter Meeting, the focus this week is on how to engage with your fellow HR professionals in physical space rather than online. Virtual resources are invaluable—I can’t tell you the number of webinars, MOOCs, and YouTube how-tos I have learned from—but there is no replacing the connection enabled by in-person content delivery. Get in touch with ASUG’s robust HR Community by taking advantage of the following events.
HR Face-to-Face in a City Near You – Run, don’t walk, to your nearest HR Community event. This blog post outlines all of the upcoming in-person opportunities available to ASUG members. Not only do we highlight discounted opportunities, but the majority of our offerings are complimentary. Get out your calendars and get ready to hit to road to one (or more!) of our many events.
NYC Chapter Meeting June 2016 – Biggest city in the country, meet the best IT user group in the country. Walk, bike, drive, train, or fly to this major metropolitan hub and take advantage of the SAP® SuccessFactors® and Concur® sessions. HR professionals are also no strangers to the importance of people, so there is no shortage of networking at this face-to-face event.
SAP SuccessFactors HCM Suite Road Map Suite-Wide Topics – While not in-person, this opportunity to meet SAP product managers is a once-in-a-lifetime (okay, once-in-a-quarter) experience. Product road maps include intelligent services, mobile, admin, talent foundation, ERP/HCM integration, cloud-to-cloud integrations, and extensibility.
HR Compensation Special Interest Group Town Hall (June) – Have you ever felt more comfortable voicing your opinion on the internet instead of face-to-face? This HR Town Hall is the perfect example of using digital platforms to aggregate opinions. Who said in-person was always preferable?
That’s it for this week! Stay tuned for next week’s recap and hopefully I’ll “see” you all soon!
