In nominating the HR Bartender blog, ITM Group wrote: "HR Bartender http://www.hrbartender.com is a friendly place to discuss workplace issues. It was created to give working women and men the opportunity to learn critical aspects of business and management tips from a human resources perspective. Key learnings center around leadership, professional development,
strategic planning, workplace social media and career strategies."
In accepting her Stevie Award on November 12, Sharlyn Lauby, SPHR, and President of ITM Group, Inc., said she called her blog HR Bartender because through the years she's grown to feel that HR professionals are thought of like bartenders: always available, with a smile, willing to listen, and to offer comfort to those in need.
