10 HR Reasons to be Invisible

Oct 20, 2013 / Human Resources / Trackback

HR Super­hero Michael Van­Der­vort­posted some­thing intrigu­ing on Face­book, a debate on flight vs. invis­i­bil­ityat and my brain imme­di­ately went into HR STEM mode (Be sure to stop over at The Human Race Horses to read Mike’s take on it).

Invis­i­bil­ity — it’s like a 2 for 1. I could just walk on the air­plane any­time I want and let it fly me.

As if that in itself doesn’t win the debate, here are 10 HR work rea­sons I would choose plas­monic cover.

  1. No meet­ings at work where you really have to be seen? Wear paja­mas, don’t worry about hair, makeup, etc.
  2. Con­duct effort­less employee rela­tions and inci­dent inves­ti­ga­tions — imag­ine the possibilities.
  3. No embar­rass­ing moment if you leave your zip­per down after using the restroom.
  4. Reprieve from hav­ing to reply ‘hi’ to every per­son that says it to you every sin­gle time they pass you in the hall all day long.
  5. Real hon­est to good­ness abil­ity to mon­i­tor how much time IT peeps actu­ally work vs. RPG.
  6. A way to know who really washes their hands in the restroom. With soap.
  7. Feet up on the desk no mat­ter who is around!
  8. You could hang out in the break­room and know what’s really going on — elim­i­nat­ing the need for those silly employee sat­is­fac­tion surveys.
  9. Avoid asso­ciates who think your job is social worker/psychologist.
  10. You could sneak your dog into your office.


Grab a pair of smash­ing Tom Fordsjust like the ones I wear — on sale! =)


Perhaps if you were INVISIBLE you could =)

love it. I linked to it in my own post.   I love the Tom Fords, but would I have to go to Amazon to heist them? :)
