"Human Resources" refers to real people at work

HR Examiner publishes "5 Books to Make HR (and Everything) Better" by employment lawyer Heather Bussing in which Bussing recommends Thomas Moore's Original Self: Living With Paradox and Originality (2000).

Bussing writes, "Moore finds meaning, healing, and spirit in the dark times and the things that don’t seem to make sense. He can reframe that feeling of going crazy to remind me that my linear, logical, business thinking is not the only thing going on, and not always in charge."

She concludes, "It turns out that not every thought or action, especially empathy and kindness, needs an ROI."
