Dignity and HR

A dignified HRBP


Following the partial deployment of our 32nd software service pack to a non-wow satisfied customer, revenues are not up this quarter, and a certain Ms Cynthia Axe, who heads our Early Bird Retirement plan, will have her white and non minority hands hands full.

Miss Ax will axe about 60% of the G&A, in a timely fashion  consistent with our Talent Management Guidelines. Big Data will not officially be impacted.


Ax (Cynthia) has recently complained of sore wrists, headaches and malaise. Malaise is a French word

Axe wants to become a massage and anti stress coach, and I am looking for a brief  course that will certify her, and make her feel more dignified.  Here is what I am looking for:
  • Brief (5 hours)
  • Wow
  • Discounted
  • Cheap 
  • Gives a degree with letters to put after a family name, like MD or LLB.
  • Global
  • Sustainable
  • Delivered by a member of a minority tribe
  • Cost effective
  • Practical
  • Agile
And most important: Ms Axe needs to feel dignified.

  1. I really don't know why Cynthia needs to bother with a course just to put some letters after her name.

    But I am worried about her malaise. The issue being perky (or not) is much discussed in the more enlightened HR circles: http://theillusionofwork.wordpress.com/2013/06/10/hr-voice-of-a-woman/
