New experiental-based book exposes current dysfunctional state of HR

MANCHESTER, U.K. - Oct. 10, 2016 - PRLog -- A new book, "The HR Cynics Reader" that blows the lid off the often unethical practices within HR has been published by Ed Moss, aothor of "The Marketing Cynics Reader" and the satirical tetralogy  "Jeremy Clarkson borrowed my Blog".

Based on his experiences over the years, the book explains the origins of HR, its abuses, the way it has gained dysfunctional momentum - because it can! -  and some of the pitfalls that can be avoided.

The book delves into Ed Moss's conviction that many of the loathsome,  deeply mistrustful and often quite facile practices in HR  today are very much responsible for the malaise that has  struck modern recruitment and employment in the UK. It  now firmly seems to take one step forwards and two, if  not three steps back on almost a daily basis in terms of  both quality and ethics.

He concedes that HR people are not necessarily bad people;  thankfully, as should be the case, a healthy majority of  them are nice, upstanding, fellow human beings. He says that it's just  they are so dreadful at what they do. Or good at what they can't and don't do. And the actual 'profession' (maybe  it's vying for the position of oldest in the world – they  have a lot in common!) itself has become a total and  expensive waste of space, time and trouble.

Ed speaks from bitter experience, in fact very bitter  experience, having on one occasion having been at the  receiving end of the most amateurish, dishonest and  corrupt HR procedures he had ever encountered in his  entire working life.

The book is available in both print and e-book format from
