Hagel and Company (http://www.hagel.net), a leading provider of Sage Software's award-winning Sage Abra HRMS (human resource management system) since 1993, today announced its first annual user conference will be held August 21, 2008, at Safeco Field in Seattle. Part of Hagel and Company's ongoing commitment to fostering a community of Sage Abra users, the event features information sessions on Sage Abra, free time for users to exchange information with other users, dinner, and the opportunity to watch the Seattle Mariners play against the Oakland A's. The event starts with information sessions at 1:45 p.m. PST, and lasts until the end of the baseball game.
"We're extremely committed to our customers' success, and one way we can help ensure their long-term growth is by providing them with opportunities to meet, learn from, and network with each other," said Frank Hagel, President of Hagel and Company. "We're thrilled to be hosting our first annual Sage Abra user conference at Safeco Field, a true Seattle icon."
The learning part of the conference will consist of three one-hour user sessions, with two options available for each time slot. Sessions cover issues key to modern HR departments, including laptop and handheld security and policy considerations; web-based time keeping systems; best practices for effective employee performance management; information on the latest version of Sage Abra HRMS; and a discussion of Washington State's new Paid Family Leave Act. Sessions will be lead by experts in the field, including D. Colin Smith of Advances In Technology, Aaron L. Simon of Hagel and Company, Lani Powell of Powell Human Resources Consulting, Jessica Simmons, SPHR, MBA of Sage Software, and State Senator Karen Keiser.
Full conference registration, including all sessions, dinner, and the baseball game, is $85 for the first attendee of a company, and $75 for each additional attendee from the same organization.
