I received a note a few weeks back from Kris Dunn, who I have had the pleasure of knowing since he presented at recruitDC a few years back. I’ve always followed and admired Kris, and his partner-in-crime, Tim Sackett, but those guys are big time in my opinion. So needless to say I was a bit surprised when I got the note that they had selected me to be part of a collection they were promoting about the Top 20 Branded HR, Recruiting and Talent Management pros…AND I WAS ON IT. I’d have to say, that was a good day.
I’m not one generally for lists and rankings and all that jazz. I’m pretty happy to operate behind the curtain (or at least to the side of it) and ensure that the job is getting done and done right. Except for social events, then I’m all about buzzing around the room.
The list is still being released one person at a time, but I know I’m in some great company, and I’m humbled. It’s as much a testament to the people who helped me get to this point, as much as it is about the work I’ve done.
If you’d like to check out the post, you can find it at The HR Capitalist. It’s one of those sites that is must read, regardless of whether or not there is a list being published.
Thanks again to Kris and Tim for including me.
