Today is Tim Sackett Day, aka the day we recognize someone we heart in Human Resources who won't end up on some fancy influencer list.
This year, our Tim Sackett Day honoree is Paul Hebert. Paul is the incentive go-to-guy and a wonder of a human being. I first met Paul at an HR conference and although we don't cross paths often, he is my guy for anything incentive and reward related.
I have his incentive primer starred in my Google Reader. Because of a conversation I had with Paul after my daughter received her first report card, I know paying for grades (e.g., $1.00 for an A) isn't a great idea. Instead, I recognize the quality she work she does and the attention she pays to her school assignments..
If you don't know Paul Hebert, you are missing out. It's never too late to add another link to you reader, another connection to your LinkedIn profile or another face to your Twitter stream. You can find Paul here (hover to highlight and click to follow links):
We are using the hashtag #timsackettday on Twitter for Paul's recognition as a heroic HR person and human being. Keep an eye out for the tweets and RT a few of them!
Here's to Paul!
