Evil HR Lady

If you’re in Utah, you’re also dealing with an earthquake. Your employees are not okay. In this COVID-19 world, this is a fact for every single one of your employees. They may act like they are okay. They may say they are okay, but they are not okay. Most aren’t pretending. This is just hard. Every one of them faces uncertainty. People working in health care or grocery stores have secure jobs, but tremendous stress and a high exposure to the coronavirus.

How Internships Helped Real People Succeed

Evil HR Lady

As part of my internship , way back in 1997, I got to testify before the Utah State Senate about the ease of finding information about making homemade explosives on the internet. It wasn’t what I saw myself doing when I applied for an internship to work for the Utah Legislature, but it sure was interesting. The Utah legislature is a true citizen’s legislature–it only operates for 45 days per year and almost all the senators and representatives have jobs.

A California Girl’s Courageous Solo Bike Journey

Ms. Career Girl

McDonalds, I realized, would be the only option in the small mountain west town of Beaver, Utah. On my most recent road trip, I rode solo through the Four Corners, from San Francisco through Nevada, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico and Arizona- a total of 2,800 miles. My trip was not without challenges- I rode through storms in Utah and an extreme heat wave in Arizona where I almost passed out from heat and fatigue on my motorcycle on the freeway.

Are You Treating Your Employees Worse Than Zoo Animals?

Evil HR Lady

A few years ago, I visited an amusement park in Utah , and was horrified when I rode through their animal park and saw large animals in cages with no shade and cement floors. There was little to no “play” equipment for the animals and certainly nothing was like their natural habitat. Had these animals had a choice of where to live, surely they would have chosen just about anything else other than this set up.

I live in Europe, the rest of my family lives in Utah and California, so the time zone problem is real. I had a video conference this morning at 5:30 am.
