Best of 2011: Numbers 8 and 7

Legend tells us that in the 5th century, St. Patrick banished all snakes from Ireland. In honor of the day that celebrates Ireland’s patron saint, consider banishing the following metaphorical snakes from your HR practices.

   7. How do other cultures handle HR?

Monsters, Inc., holds a special place in my heart. It was the first movie my wife and I saw together. As an employment lawyer, then, the following sign at the Mike & Sully meet and greet at Disney’s Hollywood Studios struck exactly the right note…. Interestingly, the last bullet point shows that even Monstropolis sees the importance of covering social media in workplace policies.
