  1. For a few years gone long by, I worked for a company that bragged it had management talent “stacked like cordwood,” in order to maintain institutional continuity. Technical talent was just a contractual commodity to be ordered and disposed of like canned tuna.

    HR is notoriously similar. Even when technical personnel are hired as employees, HR “outsources” the pre-screening grunt work to headhunters. Perhaps that way HR can keep the “fun” harrassment soap-operas and “organizational fit” screening for itself?

  2. When did HR start calling people talent? I’m not in show business. I’m not an entertainer.

    I’m an engineer not talent.
