a holiday HR shout-out
By pamela mason davey in Editor Picks and Work We Love
In honor of all the things human resources does to make the holidays festive
’tis just before Christmas, a good time to cheer
for the folks who put “merry” in this time of year
to the procurers of turkeys, the gift-giving stars
the catering wranglers: those folks in H.R.
for in each corporate culture where traditions loom large
where magic’s created: HR is in charge.
have you noticed the wreaths? the trees trimmed anew?
how the lunchroom’s a-twinkle? yup, that’s HR too.
and who orchestrates gifting the what, where and when?
(wait for it”¦ wait for it”¦. ) HR again.
and yay for the parties! the buffets and the brunches
the coworker potluck and holiday lunches
hooray for the raffles and charities chosen
for fruit baskets given and hams, fresh or frozen.
yes, thanks awesome planners (you know who you are)
santa has elves; companies have HR
let’s give it up then for the planning it takes
to created valued experiences and know the difference it makes.
