HR and the Bad Stock Photo of the Week

This week’s HR and the Bad Stock Photo of the Week winner comes from Papa Bear himself — SHRM. It’s for their Member Get a Member campaign. I’d call it the Member Get a Clue campaign.

You have to question the question mark. The empty chair. And the empty suits.

There must have been a special that week on taupe suits at the Discount Suit Emporium. But I’m sure they paid retail for the middle-aged guy.

And nothing says get-a-member like a guy in a blue suit bending his knees toward a chair like he’s standing at a urinal. Or a woman in a pointy-collared shirt and a man’s suit. Or shiny, happy people throwing HR gang signs.

Is that what HR people look like? Do you have all the right ratios? If not, forget the stock photo.
