Human Resources & Maury Povich


One of the weird things about Punk Rock HR is the audience it attracts. It’s one part HR professional + one part recruiter + a big splash of job seekers who hate the status quo and want to punch HR in the face.

I don’t want to miss an opportunity to be a shit-disturber, and I am thinking about ways to bring employees, recruiters, and HR people together.

Why aren’t we having more honest conversations about work? What if we let job seekers vent and ask HR practitioners to answer the charges & complaints? What if recruiters were asked to face candidates whom they never called back after an interview? What if an employee was called out for his rude behavior and childish career expectations?

I’m totally interested in these conversations. I wonder if this shit would go down like an episode of Maury Povich. Someone would level a crazy accusation. Tears would be shed. Punches would be thrown & security would take your ass out.

Could be awesome.
