Terminations are not fun. Managers hate them. Employees certainly hate them. Once they are done, everyone would really just prefer to move on to better things, right? But the question still remains that needs to be asked: who’s leaving and why? In a recent survey that was reported on by HR Daily Advisor, an eye-opening…

Posted on: June 27th, 2013 | Category: Employee Relations, HR Documentation, Human Resources, myHR Blog, Terminations

She and her brother, Bubba Hiers, are being sued by former employee who alleges that sexual harassment and a hostile work environment occurred at their restaurant in Savannah, Ga.

A new post called “Memo From Mad Men’s Human Resources Department” by the New York Observer, had us in stitches. It’s a very tongue-in-cheek piece that examines how everyday office life on the TV drama “Mad Men” set in the 1960s would be viewed if it were happening in the business world today.
