PowerObjects is One of the Top Places to Work in Minnesota
We like to brag about how awesome it is to work here at PowerObjects, but regardless of how our employees feel, it’s always nice to get some recognition from an outside source. That’s why we are so excited to announce that we have been named one of the Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota by the Star Tribune!
Top Workplaces recognizes the most progressive companies in Minnesota based on employee opinions measuring engagement, organizational health, and satisfaction. The analysis included responses from over 73,870 employees at Minnesota public, private, and nonprofit organizations.
The companies in the Star Tribune Top 150 Workplaces deserve high praise for creating the very best work environments in the state of Minnesota. My congratulations to each of these exceptional companies. Michael J. Klingensmith, Star Tribune Publisher
To qualify for the Star Tribune Top Workplaces, a company must have more than 50 employees in Minnesota. Over 1,555 companies were invited to participate. Rankings were composite scores calculated purely on the basis of employee responses.
This is the third year in a row that we have won this regional award, but that doesn’t make it any less special in our eyes. We have a lot of fun here! But we could not have won if it wasn’t for our amazing team members, our fantastic leadership team, and our customers, who make what we do worthwhile!

PowerObjects’ Annual Holiday Party was a “Dynamic” Success!
As much as we all love what we do here at PowerObjects, sometimes you just have to cut loose and party, which is exactly what we all did last night at our annual company holiday party! This year's event was held at local venue Pinstripes. There was bowling, bocce, and more tasty food than you could imagine.
PowerObjects puts on this annual event so that we can all gather together and celebrate another great year. We get the chance to socialize with colleagues we don't get the chance to see every day and because families are invited too, the party is truly a way to connect with each other on a personal level. Check out some of the photos from the event. Maybe you'll spot your favorite consultant!
Thank you to all of our customers, blog readers, and partners for a great year. We are excited about what's to come in 2016, and as always, happy CRM'ing!
5 Core Values = 1 Power Team
Everyone knows that when a team is united, great things can happen. Our team was built around five core values: Think Team, Love What You Do, Live the Technology, Always Add Value, and Do the Right Thing. Everything we do is based around these core values and our team has flourished because of it. Our growing pool of Raving Fans and being recognized as a top Microsoft Dynamics 365 Partner Worldwide, year after year, are just a few of the ways that the power of these core values is apparent. Watch the video below to hear from our team members and see what sets PowerObjects apart from the rest. Interested in joining our team? Learn more about career opportunities at PowerObjects.

HCL Scores Top Employer Award in the UK for the 11th Time
And the quest for CRM world domination continues! PowerObjects' parent company, HCL Technologies (HCL), has been named a Top Employer in the United Kingdom for the eleventh consecutive year by the Top Employers Institute in recognition of its best–in–class employee engagement and people practices. We are very excited here at PowerObjects for HCL's achievement in this arena!
The Top Employers Institute assessed HCL Technologies' employee practices across various criteria such as talent strategy; workforce planning; on-boarding; learning and development; performance management; leadership development; career and succession management; benefits and culture. According to the official press release, "The Top Employers Institute annually undertakes an international research study based on the HR Best Practices Survey consisting of questions on employee offerings and HR policy, to recognize leading employers around the world which provide the highest standards in employee conditions, nurture and develop talent at all levels of the organisation, and strive to continuously optimise employment practices. The research is based on a stringent process and answers are validated to check if the required standards are met."
Since 2007, HCL has been consistently recognized among UK's best employers, and PowerObjects' Minneapolis, Minnesota Headquarters location has been awarded multiple awards as well, including Star Tribune's Top 150 Workplaces in Minnesota multiple years running. That's one of the many reasons that PowerObjects and HCL make the perfect family. We are committed to the same quality of service and core values for both our customers and our team. Check out this video to learn more about the partnership that comes with working with us:

At PowerObjects, an HCL company, we don't just talk about our Core Values, we live by them every day. A guide for each decision and the starting point for every new chapter, our team is united by these common values. What are the Core Values that PowerObjects is known for, you might ask?
1. Always Add Value Be uncompromising in our commitment to the success of our clients.
2. Think Team Look not for credit; focus on results.
3. Love What You Do Bring passion to our work; never stop striving to achieve our fullest potential.
4. Live the Technology Practice what we preach; be our own best case study.
5. Do the Right Thing Stay true to our values; never compromise our integrity.
At PowerObjects, we know that we have a lot to be thankful for and try our best to say "thank you" every day. Without our amazing Dynamics 365 community, we would be lost. So… thank you! Today's blog will feature 5 things that we are grateful for. Boy was it hard for us to choose just 5 but we thought "top 5" sounded a lot better than "top 5,000," so this list is definitely to be continued! But for now, here are 5 of the things we are giving thanks for this year.
