Eileen's Lesson
Don't leave your HR to luck.

Have you ever used those subscription services through Amazon or Target? I use them all the time for household staples like toilet paper, cleaning supplies, toothpaste….
Around this time last year, I started a subscription for toilet paper. What I did not realize is that I had set up more than one subscription and with more than one service. 

Basically, by the time the summer of 2019 (aka summer of toilet paper) ended we had about 7 mega packs (24 rolls each) of toilet paper. I debated returning the items, but when my hubby and I discussed it, we joked and decided to just pause the subscriptions, laughed and said, “You never know, there might be a run on TP over the next year”.

Well, I think you know what happened. I wouldn’t call us psychics or amazing planners, it was just a lucky silver lining to a horribly embarrassing oversight. Meaning, it would be foolish to think that our pandemic planning was anything but luck.

How about you? Are you leaving your HR planning to luck? If so, it's probably best to call The HR Team for experienced HR advice and guidance.

Oh, and as for the TP situation, I can proudly say that we are now down to our last 24 pack.
