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!!!!

What they Say... What they Mean... 
 
When reading a document or listening to a person speak, do you ever get a sense that the words they are using, may in fact be carrying an ulterior meaning. Here's a few amusing examples of when a person says one thing, but means something else...

They Mean...

superiors and subordinates alike... 
They are a coward! 
They are happy at work... 
They are paid too much! 
They are a hard worker... 
They usually do whatever they need  
to do, the hard way! 
They identify major management  
problems... 
They complain a lot! 
They are indifferent to instruction... 
They think they know more than 
their managers! 
They are Internationally  
well-known... 
They like to go to conferences and  
trade shows in the US! 
They are well informed... 
They know all the office gossip and  
which ‘cupboards the skeletons can  
be found’! 
They inspire the co-operation of others... 
They get everyone else to do the work!
