Today is Tim Sackett Day. It’s the day when HR bloggers honor someone who works in human resources and doesn’t get a ton of press. In the past, we’ve praised people like Kelly Dingee, Paul Hebert, Recruiting Animal and Victorio Milian.
It all started because my friend Tim Sackett was upset because he couldn't get on a list of the top HR Bloggers. He was always 26th in top 25 lists. He'd move up to #18 and they'd only do a Top 10. We gave him his own day, here's the first post.
At the time, it was complete tongue-in-cheek, but it's actually become serious. It's now no longer about mocking vanity, it's about celebrating HR/Talent pros you don't know enough about.
Today we are honoring Lisa Rosendahl. I first became aware of Lisa back in 2008 or 2009, when she was early to the scene as one of the first HR bloggers. Here's where you can find her:
