It is said that the only thing worse than losing a good employee is keeping a bad one. The good employees tend to find better opportunities with ease even in a bad economy. However the unmotivated employees seem to stay forever. It is to these remaining employees we refer when we use the term “human remains”.
Human remains are those employees that you wish would leave – but don’t. Although we would love to get their
resignations and perhaps even dream about their absence from our organization, the truth is they are very capable people. Even you agreed to their talent at one time – because you hired them and let them stay after their probationary period.
“Human Remains” and many other new business terms are called Bizerms™ by Max Impact, a Rochester Hills, Mich., based internet site offering complimentary resources to business leaders, entrepreneurs, human resources professionals and trainers. Each Bizerm™ is a play on words designed to get people thinking about the real meaning of old terminology or to give a visual image of a more truthful business implication of situation.
