Today is the fourth annual celebration of Tim Sackett Day. It was started by HR blogger Laurie Ruettimann back in the day when she blogged at The Cynical Girl. Tim Sackett Day honors the unsung heroes in human resources – people who may or may not make the list of “Top HR Influencers.” But they are making a real difference in their communities and their workplaces.
This year’s honoree is Victorio Milian. He’s a dad, husband, HR professional, blogger, avid reader, and lover of funky music. Actually, he’s way more than that – he’s a total Renaissance Man and that’s why I admire him so much. Whenever our paths cross, be it a random Facebook interaction or an email conversation, I learn something.
I met Victorio in my early days of navigating social media, back when he sported this amazing set of locks (see photo, right.) He was always posting really interesting commentary on his blog and his Facebook feed showcased wonderful snippets from an urbane life in New York City.
As we got to know each other, I also learned about Victorio’s professional endeavors as well. He’s been an HR generalist, recruiter, and talent development specialist for organizations. He now works as a freelance HR consultant and writer, serving several clients in their recruiting and talent development needs.
Victorio is the real deal. He writes bracingly honest words that makes you stop and think, like this essay on Martin Luther King Day. He’s all over the web. He’s on Twitter: http://twitter.com/Victorio_M and LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/vmilian. His personal website is Hire Victorio and his blog is Creative Chaos.
These days, Victorio’s sporting a shorter ‘do, but no less sophistication. Get to know him. You won’t regret it.
