And then…. COVID-19.

HR can be serious business. It can also be a source of comedic material. The funny and the not-so-funny.

Work can suck.  

But people are really funny. And the situations we find ourselves in - at work, at home, in public - can be hilarious.

Ever heard that laughter is the best medicine?
