HR Blog: BuzzLinks for 07-17-08: HR Metrics, Diversity Leadership, and HR Bartender 4 Comments

By Jason Buss.

The HR Metrics Center just launched a new on-line business service for human resource professionals. The web site provides an on-line capability for human resource professionals to build HR or human capital metrics for their organizations. The HR Metrics Center includes a dynamic on-line survey providing the ability for member organizations to benchmark their HR metrics against industry averages. I attempted to register and try out the free service, and haven’t been able to log on, and never received the confirmation e-mail. I hope their service is better than the stock photo’s on the site.

Groundbreaking CEOs were honored this week for for Excellence in Diversity Leadership.

Corporate category winners included:

  • AAA Northern California, Nevada & Utah: Paula F. Downey, President
  • Campbell Soup Company: Douglas R. Conant, President & CEO
  • Deere & Company: Robert W. Lane, Chairman & CEO
  • The Procter & Gamble Company: A.G. Lafley, Chairman & CEO
  • Prudential Financial: John R. Strangfeld, Chairman & CEO
  • Siemens PLM Software: Tony Affuso, Chairman & CEO
  • Siemens Energy and Automation: Dennis Sadlowski, President & CEO
  • Siemens Power Generation, Inc.: Randy Zwirn, President & CEO

HR responsibly. That’s the tagline for HR Bartender, the recently launched weblog from human resources consulting firm Internal Talent Management (ITM) Group. HR Bartender is a strong mix of human resources musings, tips, and useful information peppered with fun facts and recommendations about food and drink from ITM Group president and blogger Sharlyn Lauby.
