Why Do Smoke Alarm Batteries Always Die at Night?

Beep……Beep……Beep.

It was one of our smoke alarms.

Beep……Beep……Beep.

In the middle of the night, of course.

Beep……Beep……Beep.

Why do smoke alarm batteries always die at night?

Beep……Beep……Beep.

And when you get up, they stop…until you go back to bed.

Beep……Beep……Beep.

Then, when you replace the battery, you accidentally hit the mute button.

Beep……Beep……Beep.

Which buys you seven more minutes of bother.

Beep……Beep……Beep.

Know what else is like a beeping smoke alarm?

Beep……Beep……Beep.

The worry your employees feel about having to tell HR their weight.

Beep……Beep……Beep.

The worry your employees feel about making the right open enrollment decisions.

Beep……Beep……Beep.

The worry your employees feel about their performance review.

Beep……Beep……Beep.

The worry that your employees feel about their careers.

Beep……Beep……Beep.

Your job in HR is to silence the beeping.

Great HR communication is like a new battery to a smoke alarm.
