You Can't Make This Sh*t Up!: Tales From the HR Crypt

The SHRMStore has moved its books to an affiliate model with Amazon. Your purchase of this book on SHRM's Amazon store supports the HR profession and SHRM's mission.


Inebriated Cover-Up. Revenge Bedlam. Lewd Felon. Vomit Comet. These sound like stories from your last night out, not ones that took place during your regular 9 to 5. Most jobs entail attending meetings, hitting deadlines, and collaborating with coworkers. If all goes well, you'll forget the HR department even exists. But what happens when the sales team gets drunk at lunch and destroys property? Or when two employees are caught sexting through company messages?

After four decades as an HR executive in corporate America, Denise Messineo has seen it all. She's mediated conflicts, terminated employments, and bailed people out of jail. In this book, she's collected her most off-the-wall tales to share. Though she's changed names and companies to protect the guilty, everything in this collection is real. After all, you can't make this sh*t up!
