I don’t think it would do any good.  It might even be counterproductive as it expresses benefits from a perspective she does not apparently share.

MY RESPONSE

Laugh! I agree.

{REDACTED} otoh didn’t see the “joke”.

{REDACTED} thought I was really going to forward it to {REDACTED}.

Whatanoob!

Interesting points though.

An “enlightened organization” would attempt to create shared value between the BORG (Business Organization) and “their” “Human Resources”.

Attention: K-Mart shoppers be advise the “gold watch” era of employment is over. (Graduate college, get a good job with big corporation, stay with them for 40+ years, retire with savings and nice pension to a great “retirement”.) Folks who still believe in that will be working their golden years at WalMart as a “greeter”. Argh!  

This goes to my personal articles of faith; some of which are:

  •  Today’s “corporation” is a heartless, soulless, dishonest beast.
  • An employee is like a consultant; their ONLY job is find their next job.
  • IN dealing the workplace, one must always remember the JoHari window Johari window http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johari_window 
  • Always remember “Human Resources” sends the signal that you’re a “paper clip”.

    I worked the last 8 years or so from home. It was the best move for me and for the company. I agree with all ten of her reasons…it is a definite plus and win-win for employee and company.
