Once upon a time...there was a boring HR person sitting in a back office filling out paperwork spouting sections from the handbook. I’m not that HR person. Work is a scary and sometimes funny place with lots of lessons to learn along the way. People don’t follow the rules, it’s HR’s job to steer them in the right direction. Unfortunately there are no apples with spells to make the bad employees fall asleep until we can recruit new ones. I plan on telling the epic lore of the workplace and how to handle it. Take the seven dwarfs, Sleepy needs to make sure he’s getting the appropriate break time to nap. Is Sneezy a Work Comp issue with Lung Problems or do we need to make reasonable accommodations for him? And don’t even get me started about the witch stirring her brew without her safety goggles….
