I created a fictional HR manager named Gloria Ramsbottom-Lemieux two years ago.
Gloria is a woman. This may shock PC readers. I try to be correct, but not politically correct. We know that most HR managers are men and CEO’s are women, don’t we?
Why did I create Gloria?
There is a new generation of HR managers that “upset” me. They suffer from an overdose of slogans and screw the masses, dressed up as “HR business partners”.
Low in the intellect department, they overdose technology, serving as running dogs of the status quo, refusing to confront the powers that be, just to preserve their seat at the table.
They prefer motivational speakers to tackle issues of the immensely complex human condition at work. Everything needs to be wow, or wow wow. Or nice.
Gloria is my own grotesque version of such an HR manager, created “in line with my core value of anger management”. Laughter beats tears.
On Dec 5th, 2014, Google agreed to allow me to monetize the Gloria site, based on traffic and content.
Those who were with me on the OD list serve (where Gloria began her career) may understand how happy I am.
Gloria’s blog can be found at ramsbottom-lemieux.blogspot.co.il
Let there be no doubt. Gloria and all characters in the blog are inspired by real situations. Gloria as a person, however, is a fictional character. Many people believe she is real and she gets fan mail.
