HEROES OF HIRING

Stewart Samkange–Hiring Hero of the Week

No comments

Meet Stewart Samkange, this week’s Hero of Hiring. His stated mission is to “make the ‘working-world’ a better place.” Stewart is doing that through his work with LinkedIn (he provides talent solutions for Africa to help HR Directors plan, develop, and hire) and his thought leadership. What makes Stewart a powerful presence for change and improvement is what he shares with the world, how he shares it, and the conversations he’s able to create. When you scroll through the content he posts you’ll see what I mean (click here for an example). Stewart says that one of his secrets of success is that he’s “bold, ambitious, and disarmingly honest.” Yes he is, and we could use more of that in our world. Thank you Stewart for being a role model and for the heroic work you do every day!

BTW…you can find the valuable content I referred to on Stewart’s LinkedIn page.

ABOUT THE HEROES OF HIRING

We’ve all heard it said that a company’s most important asset is its people. When we say we love a company, what we’re really saying is we love the work being done by the exceptional people in these organizations. Talented employees who do outstanding work are the secret ingredients that make their companies great. That’s why recruiting and hiring is so important. Each person involved in the hiring process is influencing the future of their company. These individuals are also impacting one of the most important aspects of people’s lives—their careers. The individuals who play a role in the hiring process are changing companies and lives, making hiring a heroic act.

The hiring heroism of a select group of people goes above and beyond. These unsung hiring heroes are making a lasting difference on a grand scale. That’s the reason for this distinction—the Hiring Hero of the Week. The hope in bestowing this honor is that people across the globe can celebrate and learn from these truly amazing human beings.

Steve Browne–Hiring Hero of the Week

No comments

If we could clone a Hero of Hiring, Steve Browne would have to be at the top of the list. Steve is the Vice President of HR at LaRosa’s, Inc. What makes him worthy of being the Hiring Hero of the Week? Steve spends his days positively impacting those around him. When I get the chance to eat at a LaRosa’s pizzeria, I experience Steve’s influence in the quality of the people who work there (plus the pizza is amazing). Everywhere you look, be it online or at an HR event, Steve is there, supporting and guiding and cheering on the community. If that weren’t enough, he serves as a Director-at-Large on the SHRM Board of Directors and is the author of HR on Purpose: Developing Deliberate People Passion. Thank you Steve for the heroic work you do every day!

P.S. Steve is very active on social media. Follow him on Twitter and LinkedIn.

Mike Lejeune–Hiring Hero of the Week

No comments

This week’s Hero of Hiring will come as no surprise to those who know him. Mike Lejeune, President of Lighting the Path, sets an example daily of what it means to serve those around him. When I asked Mike to describe his work he said, “My path is to inspire, to ignite passion, to raise the bar of what we expect of ourselves in recruiting as leaders, recruiters, and business development specialists. We make a difference when we do more than serve—lives change by how we show we care.” And what a difference Mike has made. He’s mentored hundreds of professionals, helping them climb the corporate ladder and open their own search firms. Mike has also helped establish industry standards, including his work in creating one of the first accreditation programs for recruiters and the development of the extensive curriculum he uses in his work. Thank you Mike for the heroic work you do each day!

Be sure to follow Mike on Twitter and LinkedIn.
