Let's Talk

About Tim Sackett

I’m a 20 year HR/Recruiting Talent Pro with a Master’s in HR and SPHR certification, currently residing in Lansing, MI. Currently the President at HRU Technical Resources – a $40M IT and Engineering contract staffing firm and RPO. Prior to joining HRU, I was the Director of Employment at Sparrow Health System, Regional HR and Staffing Director with Applebee’s Intl., Retail Health Recruiting Manager and Regional HR Mgr. with ShopKo Stores and Pamida respectively. I’ve split my career half between recruiting and half between HR generalist roles – also split half between the HR vendor community and Corporate America – So, I think I get it from both sides of the desk.

Candidate Experience (CX) has been a hot topic in HR and Talent Acquisition for almost a decade now. There's an entire conference and awards show, called the CandEs, for the organizations that deliver the top candidate experiences on the planet.

Because of this, consultants could sell you services and offer great advice like, "treat candidates like you treat your customers" and "candidates should have a bill of rights".
