Workday is recruiting Jim Holincheck from Gartner. He is a top notch HR analyst, and I agree with Dennis Howlett, “one of the good guys”. Very nice functional and personality fit for Workday.
Jim and I go back a ways. I tried – unsuccessfully – to recruit him when he was at Accenture in 1993. I finally succeeded in 2000. I lost him to my former employer, Gartner in 2003. But we have always been a phone call away when we want to validate anything as peers.
Through it all, I can certify Jim is high-ethics. In his soft-spoken way, he knows how to make his points. I have long admired the fact that he is a tinkerer – always curious about new apps. I always felt if there was a PC Labs for enterprise software he would be a great fit.
I also learned you do not want to challenge the guy at foosball. Or play trivial pursuit on anything Disney World with him.
I am looking forward to another chapter with Jim as he joins the other good guys at Workday.
