The Great HR Herpetologist

Dr. John Sullivan, the great herpetologist.

Dr. John Sullivan is at his headline grabbing best this week with a new article likening Human Resources people to snakes. No, I'm sorry, I got that wrong. He's found HR people's actions "scarier and more despicable than any real snake I’ve come across."

He has always shown his disdain for the profession but in this article he is just downright mean.

And this from a man who professes on the subject of HR at San Francisco State University.

Of course his rhetoric is just silly and purely for Dr. Sullivan's own attention getting purposes. (Maybe he should switch to teaching PR instead of HR?) Every profession has employees who are lousy at their job but that's no reason to condemn the whole profession.

Apparently the good Dr. has been asleep at the switch for the past decade.
