Re: HR Fail

I worked for a large organization that actually had an Animal Husbandry department which fed and otherwise maintained a livestock feed testing farm. They thought they would sound more modern when they changed its name to Animal Resources for a few years. It was eventually pointed out that the name seemed to be demeaning to their animals and they changed the name to Animal Care.

Within weeks, the larger organization changed the name of Personnel to Human Resources. The irony was lost on one and all.
