This comes to you from the Hilton at Heathrow Airport. We’ve had a wonderful sojourn in England — such a civilized country, especially when you’re far away from any large cities — but it’s time to get back to work. And since I know I won’t have wifi on the flight across the pond tomorrow, [...]
Bill And Me And HRTechConf Makes Three!
I’m writing this as Ron and I are in New England visiting my family and both childhood and university friends. One of our visits is to North Haven Island, off the coast of Maine and only accessible by Ferry (assuming the seas aren’t running too high). I’m [...]
There But For The Grace Of G-d Go Us!
[The original version of this post was published here in January, 2012, but a call I did last night with a magazine editor reminded me that we must emphasize just how important it is to start any HR technology project with a well-grounded strategy. [...]

From the time we arrive in Chicago late Saturday afternoon (yes, The Wallace [...]

Aneel Bhusri and Dave Duffield, Workday Founders/Co-CEOs
