HR’s take on the hungry caterpillar:
Tucked up in bed lay a tired HR Consultant
On Monday morning the warm sun came up and yawn the HR Consultant jumped out of bed!
She started to look for some work
On Monday she sacked someone but still wanted more work
On Tuesday she made two people redundant but still wanted more work
On Wednesday she dealt with 3 grievances but still wanted more work
On Thursday she held 4 disciplinaries but still wanted more work
On Friday she recruited 5 employees but still wanted more work
On Saturday (because she was a workaholic) she:
Sacked one person
Issued a final warning
Handled a TUPE consultation
Wrote a contract
Responded to a grievance
Wrote an employee handbook
Negotiated a settlement agreement
Wrote an appraisal system
Requested a medical assessment
And responded to a flexible working request
That night she had a headache
The next day was Sunday, she had a glass of wine and felt much better!
She didn’t want any more work, she had a great business
She booked a holiday and went away for more than 2 weeks!
She returned from holiday and decided HR wasn’t for her and became a lady of leisure!!
