HRBN 40 Under 40

40-under-40HRBN, The Starr Conspiracy and Retargeter are proud to present the HRBN 40 Under 40.

This list was created because I was sick and tired of HR leaders telling me that our industry’s talent pipeline is weak. I think they are wrong. The future of HR and recruiting is bright and social. We have shining examples of leadership in our community.

And they blog.

(Oh, the humanity!)
