Human Resources. Ever stop and just ponder the meaning and implications of this phrase? Chances are if you’re a working adult you’ve bumped into this phrase plenty of times and have just accepted it without thinking much.
The phrase itself implies that you’re just a thing. Not quite an individual anymore, but just a thing that needs to be managed so that the maximum amount of value and profit can be extracted from you. It’s a little disquieting when you think about it. I guess that’s all you are in the eyes of a big corporation.
