HumouR Us... 
It has been reported, that those working in Human Resources are amongst the unhappiest workers in the United Kingdom... There are occasions when the nature of our work perhaps puts us in a more sombre mood than most, but that's not always the case and there can be a lighter side to our work too - even some humour on occasions and we will be using this space to share some of the funnier aspects of our work. Some of the stories will be true; others will be entirely fiction - but in all cases, names will be with-held to protect the guilty!!!! 

'The Newbie'... 
The new HR Manager was being introduced to their duties by their predecessor. 
At the end of the handover the retiring HR Manager said "You are bound to get problems and when you do open these three envelopes as need be." 
After only two months a crisis arose and the new HR Manager opened envelope number one. On a card inside it said, "Blame your predecessor". This they did and the Managing Director believed them and they just scraped by. 
A further three months and another crushing problem - so to envelope number two. "Say you're reorganising", it advised. They did; but the Managing Director was now noticeably displeased. 
Only six months later they were confronted by another insoluble dilemma. Feverishly they opened the last envelope. The note inside read - "Prepare three envelopes...."! 
... And this week; as it is 'Black Friday', here's two for the price of one...
