Like most of us in the HCM field, I’ve been closely following the job market. I’ve read hundreds of articles on the challenges of retaining and hiring talent for every type of job from restaurant and retail workers all the way up to senior executives. Of course, Diversity and Inclusion have been at the heart of it all , and so many strategies and tactics abound for attracting and retaining workers such as unlimited vacation , or extra vacation , significant cash incentives such as the program just approved by Seattle for its police department , some even having no vaccine mandate which is proving to be a useful recruiting tool . Every tool in the book ...

One of OHUG's newest partners, UIPath is rocking it with RPA!! Many of our members have started to dip their toes into Robotic Process Automation for their Oracle HCM systems. UIPath is offering a few awesome ways to learn more and figure out if RPA is for you: UiPath is Making Work Matter Busywork has become so rampant that most of our time is spent doing something other than the jobs we were hired to do. It’s not surprising that—in a work environment where well over half of activities involve some combination of emails, administration, and meetings—high-level thinking is at an all-time low. There’s a cure for busywork: RPA . Robotic Process Automation ...

Blog Post by Sarah, OHUG Board Member Oracle revealed a new bundled feature, all about ME! We knew Oracle had newly aligned focus on their customer service in most recent years. Then with the investment into HR Analytics, Oracle focused on the HR Professional. Now Oracle has taken a deeper dive, focusing on the employee experience. Oracle ME focuses on combating the great resignation and giving the employee a seamless ‘employee experience’ with innovative tools that also ‘ just look really cool ’. Oracle ME delivers tools that are interwoven through Oracle HCM Cloud, and then amp them up a few notches. Think Journeys, Helpdesk, Social and Digital Assistant, ...

When I look back on the last 10+ years of my career, the OHUG Global Conference is always a highlight. The pandemic sure stymied in person educational and networking experiences, especially conferences. As work slowly returns to something more familiar, so are conferences. The OHUG Global Conference is still in business - and its bigger and better than ever as we have joined with OATUG to form ASCEND . Ascend 2022 contains the HCM content you've always enjoyed along with the rest of the ERP Suite, Technology, and Analytics you saw at Collaborate . So - if you can't find the OHUG Global Conference, now you know - its inside of Ascend - just as ...

Lately I'm more concerned than ever about making a difference, helping people; being thoughtful and kind. Living in our world today is tougher than ever! Work is more challenging and complicated. We're not all in an office anymore with our coworkers and there seem to be fewer of them and the list of tasks keeps getting longer. Even just doing regular things like grocery shopping or going out to eat or to the movies requires more effort. Each day, I find myself looking for connection with others in meaningful ways. I think about what I can do to make life or work just a little bit better for someone. It's the small things that matter. The small things ...

If you've been wondering how to stretch your education budget dollars, here's how: SUBMIT A PRESENTATION ABSTRACT! If your session is selected, you get a HUGE discount on registration. For customer presenters, registration is only $195, and if you're a partner, it's still a great deal at $495. So here's the catch -- the call for presentations closes on January 28. All you need is an idea for sharing your expertise, experiences, successes, and even failures (because we all learn from our mistakes, right?) We just need a title, brief abstract describing what you're going to talk about, and a few learning objectives. The slide deck isn't due until May, so ...
