Abracadabra: This Week in ASUG’s HR Community

Do you believe in magic? Whether you suspend disbelief or quickly Google “rabbit hat trick secret” during a magic show, there is something mystical about HR. Well, not really, but I needed something to tie into the fact that one of the keynote speakers at SuccessConnect next week is the one and only Magic Johnson! So while I get ready to set up the ASUG booth and prepare for our big announcement: Pick a card, any card, and check out ASUG’s HR Community.

SuccessConnect – Only a week remains until SuccessConnect in Las Vegas! Registration is still open, so bippity-boppity-buy a ticket and learn the tricks of the trade from other SAP® SuccessFactors® experts. Don’t forget to stop by the ASUG booth to learn more about our magical announcement and go hands-on with our new… well, you’ll see.

Discussion – Insurance Coverage – Some people may think magic is just for kids, but we can all agree that health insurance coverage should be for all ages. In this discussion, one of our users finds that changing coverage based on an employee’s age isn’t as simple as waving a magic wand. Any tech or HR wizards out there who can help?

Discussion – Statutory Holiday Pay in Canada – For my next act, I will take all of your vacation pay and make it disappear! No? Not funny? Agreed. Help our members across the northern border so that their employees’ vacation time doesn’t pull a Houdini. What are the minimum requirements for paid holidays in Canadian provinces? How do you configure your HR system to accommodate? Come share your tricks of the trade.

Employee Central Payroll versus On-Premise Payroll: Key Differences and Tips for Success – Levitation is an incredibly popular magic technique. The visual effect of someone floating even just a few inches above the ground is incredibly novel. While I am no magician (or am I?), I can imagine you could use mirrors, tethers, or even CGI for the levitation effect. Payroll is similar―with SAP, it often looks the same, but the platforms and processes behind it can be worlds apart. Tune into this webcast on how to succeed with both Employee Central Payroll and On-Premise Payroll. This webcast is no illusion: real life lessons are behind these tips.

Right before your eyes, I turned a cheesy magic analogy into yet another comprehensive HR overview. I implore you to keep your eye on all things SuccessConnect and ASUG. Big things are coming next week, so step right up and enjoy the show.
