Is This A Subliminal Message Regarding HR Departments?

My mate recently sent me this photo from Australia.

Given how I once was in a meeting where someone asked the then CEO of Y&R whether HR stood for Human Remains, maybe this company is of the same view.

That, or it could be because many people are so frustrated with their HR departments protecting the management team rather than the people, they end up going to the loo and crying their eyes out.

I’m fortunate I’ve worked/work with some genuinely good HR people in my time, but in my experience, they’re still the exception rather than the rule.

And for the record, it’s no coincidence I’ve written about this subject on Halloween.

You might be going out tonight dressed as witches and skeletons, but if you really want to be scary, you should think about dressing up as your company HR representative.

Freddie Kruger wears a Campbell mask for Halloween. That’s much scarier than an HR outfit.

That comment is almost as topical as my posts.

Though writing a post about halloween that is actually on halloween is obviously the high point of this blogs relevance. Never to be repeated.

Comment by Rob

That’s another thing about this post that’s scared me.

Is John Boiler going as you?

Comment by John

They should go as each other.

Comment by George

Or would people just think they have come as themselves but in different clothing?

Comment by George

It gets worse.
