Human “Resources” …. when did that happen?! It drives me insane. Why is it called the Human Resources Department? To take the humanity out of it allowing some companies to perform some of the worst atrocities in history? Why not the Human Beings Department? Because then it will remind people that we are actually dealing with real, live people every day who hurt and bleed? We’re calling it that in our company now, the Human Beings Department, and it’s filled with beautiful, amazing people.
Human BEINGS have feelings. Human BEINGS have families. Human BEINGS give up their family time to work in your company. Human BEINGS have emotional and financial needs that need to be met. Human BEINGS experience love, joy and pain. Human BEINGS are colourful, crazy, creative and diverse.
What is a “resource” for goodness sake? I’m not a resource, I am a person. Long live our new Human Beings Department!
