Take a Bite: This Week in ASUG’s HR Community


I am notorious around ASUG Chicago for my sweet tooth. I’m first in line for birthday cake, I’ll always choose a cinnamon roll over a wheat bagel or piece of fruit, and I may just be the reason our Executive Assistant locks up her candy jar at night. Luckily, a good toothbrush and a relatively consistent running routine help mitigate the disgusting amounts of sugar I consume. Still, the (Milky)way to my heart will always be through candy and cocoa. It should come as no surprise that any HR article with “chocolate” in the opening line would catch my immediate interest. Learn more about how to get some free chocolate and find more sweet content on ASUG’s HR Community. Just don’t Snicker at my Mounds of puns.

Writing Your Way to Analytical Heaven – “Chocolate is essential to the production of effective people data analytics.” What an opening line. While I came for the sweetness of this post, I stayed for the wealth of information on the truths and fallacies of the fourth industrial workforce. Like one of those 5 lb novelty candy bars, however, this post can’t be finished without some help. Take a bite of this discussion and share your perspective. Plus, anyone who responds will get some free chocolate.

SAP® SuccessFactors® Q3 2016 Business Update/Release Highlights – When I was younger, I had a friend whose mom worked for a major candy manufacturer, so he always had treats that hadn’t even hit the shelves yet. I was always a little jealous, but now I have the last laugh as I get my hands on info about upcoming SAP SuccessFactors updates before they go live. I don’t need to be the envy of the HR community, however, as you can all tune in and see what’s cooking in the proverbial confectionary oven.

SuccessConnect – I am excited for SuccessConnect like Charlie was excited to visit Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Luckily, you don’t need a golden ticket to explore the latest and greatest in SAP SuccessFactors functionality. Register now for the event and you can expect to see some very sweet ASUG announcements. Just please take care not to fall into the river at the Venetian in Las Vegas, Augustus Gloop-style.

2016 ASUG HR & Payroll Canada Summit – I don’t want all you Smarties up north to be salty, because Werther … ahem, whether you are in the US or Canada, there are Red Hot events for you to attend. You don’t have to pay 100 grand for this event―it’s complimentary for all ASUG members. With four education tracks and an exclusive Pre-Conference Seminar, this is an event you donut want to miss.

I hope all of these candied callouts didn’t make you nauseous or give you cavities. (Gummy) bear with me as I prep for SuccessConnect and blog the weeks away. Have a great weekend and be sure to check out all of the delectable content on ASUG’s HR Community.

      I have a friend with a problem with a "candy and desserts addiction". I once said "Your problem is you have a sweet tooth".....he replied,"No...I have sweet TEETH...they all love it!" 😛
