Episode 38 – Speak From Your Scars, Not From Your Open Wounds


I am writing to inform you that Marc has decided to leave the Hostile Work Environment to spend more time with his family, and Dennis has decided to leave to pursue other interests.

(Just kidding — we’re here to stay. )

But we do talk about what special guest and People and Culture professional extraordinaire Rebecca Weaver calls the “Poo Memo”- the memo we send out when someone gets fired that falsely claims they left to “Pursue Other Opportunities.”  As if collecting unemployment and watching daytime TV is an “opportunity.”

Rebecca sticks around for a second segment where she talks about a social movement within HR — HRuprise.

And Marc tells a story with new special storytime music (that is totally fair use and not theft Mr. Copyright Lawyer).
