The most important resource for any company is its people – its human resources. A key focus at our upcoming SuiteWorld conference will be NetSuite’s customer-centric approach to human capital management. I’d like to issue a personal invitation on behalf of the entire NetSuite HCM team to come and engage with us in San Jose next month.
At SuiteWorld, you will hear that ‘suite’ message ring out loud and clear throughout keynote addresses and breakout sessions. Customers, partners and NetSuite executives will lay out the value of combining HCM, ERP, CRM, PSA and other employee-focused information whether generated by NetSuite or by NetSuite complemented with offerings from our partners. In addition, I would like to draw your attention to two HR-specific breakout sessions:
‘What’s New: Getting the Most Out of TribeHR’ taking place on Tuesday, May 5 at 4:45 p.m. PT. Umar Tanwir, Director, Product Management, HCM at NetSuite, will share all the latest features in TribeHR and demos of new functionality as well as customer stories, advice on best practices, and new out-of-the-box integrations with NetSuite partners.
‘What’s New, What’s Next: NetSuite Premier Payroll’ taking place on Thursday, May 7 at 1:00 p.m. PT. Barinder Saini, Director, Software Engineering at NetSuite will provide a complete overview of NetSuite Premier Payroll and Services, a demo of a new user interface and a sneak peek of upcoming features, as well as plenty of advice into how to simply and easily manage payroll processing for large enterprises.
All our breakout sessions are designed to be highly interactive so please feel free to engage with our speakers and carry on the conversation into session breaks, meal times and social events during SuiteWorld.
One area of the show not to be missed is our User Experience Lab in the SUITEdemogrounds. Please stop by to check out some elements of future HCM functionality we’re working on. Don’t be shy – share your opinion – we really value your input.
SuiteWorld is all about people and sharing experiences and insights and making new connections. It’s often the unanticipated engagements that prove the most valuable. I remember at last year’s event how our customer AMC Liquidators kindly volunteered to record a testimonial video with us after another customer had to take a raincheck due to a scheduling conflict. That interaction at SuiteWorld with AMC led to an awesome TribeHR testimonial, and cemented an already strong relationship which has continued to build and build ever since.

Just the other day I wrote about the impact that working on exciting, industry leading software has on our people—creating an energy and enthusiasm that comes from contributing to important work. Well, now we’ll be ratcheting that up a notch after yesterday’s announcement of our strategic partnership with Maxwell Health.

When TribeHR was acquired by NetSuite, small and mid-sized businesses gained access, for the first time, to an integrated, cloud-based ERP and HCM software suite. The addition of Maxwell’s revolutionary cloud solution for employee healthcare and

SuiteWorld, the annual gathering of NetSuite customers, partners, industry press and analysts is putting its emphasis on the first group in that list like never before.
With 6,000 attendees expected to attend the annual event at the San Jose Convention Center (SJCC) May 12-15, NetSuite’s customers are front and center. That starts with the opening reception Monday night, where the SJCC will be serving up wine from our customer Northwest Cellars Winery, which has made high-quality wines for over 1,600 corporate clients, nonprofits, restaurants, hotels, private clubs, special occasions, and personal gifts.
NetSuite customers also line the shelves in the
If you haven’t heard already, I have some very exciting news - yesterday we announced that TribeHR has entered into an agreement to be acquired by NetSuite. I’m writing this post to share a few personal thoughts directly with our customers and partners.
We founded TribeHR with the belief that inspired, engaged and connected employees build the best companies – we built TribeHR to help our customers cultivate that reality within their own organizations. With a modern cloud application that gives employees and managers access to performance, recruiting, and core HR data, we’ve improved

Focus on the Frontline
Empowering staff is no easy task, especially in a customer service role. Working in a fast-paced environment while dealing with irritable customers often makes it hard for representatives to stay enthusiastic. Here are some tips from Harvard Business Review on empowering customer service employees:
Get Started: Connect the front line to the customer strategy.
Empower Your Workforce: Teach people to think for themselves.
Experiment to Implement: Grant front line workers latitude to experiment.
Eliminate the Barriers: Smash your hierarchies.
Invest in Your Frontline: Allocate budget space

Recess Without Stress
Leave time is a big part of keeping your team happy. This week Forbes highlights the importance of planning employee vacations at the right times. Time-off is best when scheduled away from any important company dates or product releases.
When it’s time for an employee to be away, managers and co-workers should be prepared, and auto-responders configured properly. Make sure to also clearly define when and how the absent employee can be contacted on their mobile phone. Rest and recuperation is the

How do you hire the best candidates?
Asking questions is the first step to solving most problems. When it comes to hiring, asking and listening will help you determine which candidate is the best fit. In an article on best hiring practices this week for Inc., Jeff Haden requests that we ask these three behaviour-related questions:
What do you know about our business and industry?
How did you come to learn that what we do is important to our clients?
What is your favorite aspect of our business, and

Pillars of Stability
Our friends at OpenView have a culture of collaboration based on three principles, which are discussed in a new article on their blog. Adopting the scrum methodology, addressing the “five dysfunctions of a team,” and encouraging employees to bring their “best self” to the table, all help them focus on what matters to them as a company.
Businesses that stress their shared values, team dynamics, and positive outlooks are better able to work together to solve problems. That’s news that never
Filtering through the HR news for the week ending June 7th, 2013:
For new graduates, the competition to find a dream job straight out of college is fierce. Many seek the perfect role while they get by via a retail or entry-level position in the meantime. This week Fast Company discussed the importance of balancing a great cover letter and resume with “soft skills.”
With the increasing focus on company culture, for many businesses it makes sense to hire someone based on personality fit, then provide more in-depth training to fill in specific skill gaps. Volunteer or
Concentrating on the HR news for the week ending May 31st, 2013:
With summer looming and the prospect of many employees’ scheduled vacations, distractions are on the rise too. The sun is shining and the office may not seem as rewarding of an environment in comparison. To keep your employees focused during this time of year, executives and managers need to stay on task as well. Forbes touches on the habits of company leaders and how they affect the work ethic of their employees.
If managers have a laid back attitude during the summer, or lower
