HR Humor

Since we are in a recession, resumes are pouring into e-mail "Inboxes". Think twice before hiring anyone who puts statements such as the following on their resumes:

" Wholly responsible for two (2) failed financial institutions."

"Am a perfectionist and rarely if if ever forget details."

"Note: Please don't misconstrue my 14 jobs as 'job-hopping'. I have never quit a job."

"References: none. I've left a path of destruction behind me."

HR Humor

"Put several prospective employees into a room with only a table and two chairs. Leave them
without any instruction and check back on them in two hours:

The ones that are sleeping.... they are management material.
The ones that do not notice when you walk in.... place them in security.
The ones that have left early.... put them in sales.
And the ones that are talking to the chairs.... assign them to human resources."

"The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it." Theodore Roosevelt

Human Resources-Employee Relations

If there was ever a critical time to consistently communicate with your employees and to offer them on-going encouragement, that time is now. Please get up from your desk, find a fellow employee who needs to hear some positive words, and speak those words to that person.

The Economy

OK, time for me to get on my soapbox- humor me.

Please write to your (2) US Senators TODAY and tell them-do not, do not, do not vote for the $850 billion dollar stimulus bill until ALL of the "pork" is removed. We need funding for legitimate projects that will create jobs. We also need tax cuts that will encourage the private sector to invest in capital equipment and buildings for their companies that will create jobs.

Free enterprise is the only way out of this recession, NOT reckless, stupid, irresponsible government spending!!!

Thanks for reading.

In your opinion, which of the following is the most effective way to recognize an employee for a significant accomplishment at work?
