Here are this week’s Life Pro Tips.
1. If your grandma or mom knits/crochets you something, keep it. Even if you don’t wear it, trust me, one day you won’t care what’s cool, you’ll just wish you had that scarf that your mom spent days making for you. They are irreplaceable.
2. HR can’t be on your side unless you make them.
By definition, Human Resources is there to protect the company from lawsuits, not to help the employees.
As much as HR people want to help you and protect the worker, it’ll cost them their jobs if they put you over the company. So the best tip I can give you is this:
Don’t ask HR for help. Make them.
Get evidence. Document interactions. Get things in writing. The more you have as proof of whatever your complaint is, the more HR will have to help you. If you show them you have proof that will support a lawsuit, they will do everything they can to make sure it doesn’t need to happen, and the easier it is for HR to justify it to their bosses.
