FOT v.8.0 Talent Management Power Rankings – Top 25 Blogs #FOT25

Holland Dombeck McCue Talent Management Power Rankings

We are proud to present the eighth installment of the Fistful of Talent, Talent Management Power Rankings, as voted by the gang here at FOT. We believe our lineup is the best in talent/recruiting/HR/human capital blogs – compiled without the use of fancy SEO stats or complicated formulas. Click here to brush up on the original methodology. (but note that lineup of pollsters has changed)

In the 2012 season we are teaming up with FOT’s very own Steve Boese and counting down the Top 5 Talent Management blogs on a special edition of HR Happy Hour tomorrow, March 22 at 8pm ET. Join Steve as he and guests discuss the evolving HR blogosphere, in true Cassie Kasem fashion. You’ll also be hearing from some our Top 5 winners – perhaps even an acceptance speech or two, for their coveted award.

As we have done with past Top 25 releases, all FOT contributor blogs have been deemed ineligible for a spot on our list. With that in mind, be sure to add these folks to your preferred reader: Steve Boese at the aptly named Steve Boese’s HR Technology, Dawn Burke at HR Insomniac, Kris Dunn at The HR Capitalist, Paul Hebert at Incentive Intelligence and Tim Sackett at The Tim Sackett Project.

Let’s get to the list!
