The HR Cynics Reader - epub version
The HR Cynics Reader
An altogether very satirical swipe at the HR (personnel) industry examining some of the quite unethical and downright farcical practices that occur before, during and after the modern recruitment process.
Included are the origins of HR itself and the good intentions it once had, together with a look at some of the pitfalls to avoid when confronted with less than ethical HR practices that seem to now dominate recruitment. Also, an attempt is made to unravel some of the reasons HR has worsened over the years and is now perceived as less Human Resourses and more Human Remains, or even, as some refer to it, the clipboard culture of the Department of Business Destruction.
