Human Resources magazine in the UK published a list of the Top 100 Most Influential people in HR (June 2006). In their words: "Here is the most definitive list ever published of HR's biggest movers and shakers, produced from names submitted by readers—and then ranked by the top 100 themselves."
Tom made the list. Maybe because he calls HR "The Rock Stars of the Age of Talent." You can see the whole list and accompanying article here.
