Another One Gone...

I’ve told you about the many, many, many people that have come and gone in our HR Department.  Well, yesterday was no different – another one was terminated. 

Since my starting with this company two and a half years ago, we have hired, fired or lost 6 individuals from HR.  Some went willingly – others not so much.
The difference between this loss and the ones in the past – I liked this one.  She had a great sense of humor and a no nonsense attitude.  She wasn’t afraid to speak her mind and was one of those individuals that would have your back should the need arise.  She went to bat for employee’s rights and benefits.  It was those same admirable qualities that got her terminated.  
The bottom line – she ruffled too many feathers in a male dominated organization.    Today, what shred of respect I had left for the management team of this organization was lost.  It infuriates me and makes me sick.

@Brian - Yeah, I lost a job the same way too a few years ago. I would do it again in a heartbeat. Having said that, I'm likely next here.

She made a glaring error, she thought she was suppose to be an advocate for the employees. Opps
@R. Jacob - You are so right! Shame on her...

People, especially women, who speak their minds and ruffle feathers often end up getting fired. It's a shame.
Sorry to hear about your friend. It's always the ones who actually care or can do the job isn't it? Truly sad and shameful :(

Strong women are often treated this way in in the professional world. It's sad, but true. I'd steer clear of that revolving door if I were you.

Ugh that stinks! I'm sorry!! It reminds me again why I disliked Corporate America so much.
