Human resources professionals probably too often fall in the "taken for granted" category. You know, the dependable, they’ll get done what needs to be done mentality.

Ogletree Deakins and HR Dimensions of Indianapolis have recognized leaders in the HR field since 2005 with the Human Resources Professional of the Year award. Nominations for 2009 are open, with an April 3 deadline. The award presentation takes place May 6 as part of the Chamber’s 45th Annual Human Resources Conference & Expo.
