A MEMO I'D LIKE TO SEE FROM A VP OF HR

(BREAKING NEWS: There will be no Musing posted tomorrow, July 1st.  Try to cope.)

I’ve got a new post up on my blog at The CEO Magazine.  You’ll find it here.

Here's its premise:

Imagine a Vice President of Human Resources for a Boston-based company who is about to retire.  In fact, it’s his last afternoon on the job.  The days of defined-benefit plans are long gone, so he doesn’t have to worry about running afoul of any of the “do-not-disparage” terms of his retirement agreement.  And he’s already had his 401k transferred over to a privately managed account, so those funds are beyond the reach of his soon-to-be-former employer as well.

In other words, he’s free to say what he really wants to say, and in his final action as an employee, he sends the email below to his colleagues on the company’s leadership team.  If I had my way, it might sound something like this...
