January 23, 2012 my friends made that day forever be known as Tim Sackett Day! By January 23, 2013 those same friends thought I couldn’t take another day of celebration and honor, and decided to honor another individual but still call it Tim Sackett Day! So, last year we honored the great Paul Hebert!
Tim Sackett Day is about honoring and giving respect to fellow HR and Talent Pros that we don’t think get enough respect. They are wicked smart. Great at their profession. Helpful towards others. Really, just good all around people, we think you should know more about. Yes, everything I’m not! Laurie’s original goal was to introduce our little HR and Talent social world to people they might not know, but really should.
That’s why I’m excited on this day, January 23, 2014 for Tim Sackett Day, we are honoring Kelly Dingee! (Pronounced Din Gee like a dirty window, not Dinghy like a small boat or silly person) You might know her as @SourcerKelly on the Twitters, or that super cool chick out of Washington D.C. who is the Recruiting Manager at Staffing Advisors. I know her as a peer and colleague from Fistful of Talent.
If I grow up to be a lady, I would want to be Kelly! Great Talent Pro. Helpful as can be. Funny. Great Mom.
Behind the scenes I tell Kelly this probably 3-4 times per year – ‘I Love Your Writing’. Kelly teaches me more in a year than anyone else in the industry. I don’t think I can ever thank her enough for that. We both are in the staffing game so she speaks my language, and she knows my problems, and she usually has really good ways to solve all of my roadblocks.
If anyone should have their own day, it’s Kelly! She would never ask for it, or feel she deserves it, but she does.
Please send Kelly a note on Facebook, or Twitter, or LinkedIn – where ever you like to hang and congratulate her on being named the 2014 Tim Sackett Day honoree!
