The Latest HR Buzzword - Presenteeism
OCTOBER 25, 2004
I love words but I hate buzzwords. Buzzwords put a new spin on an old issue but don''t generally add any significant value except to help consultants and vendors sell more services. Now that I am in the vendor seat, I should value buzzwords but I just can''t do it. The most recent buzzword that annoys me is "Presenteeism". Do we really need a 12 letter word for people who come to work sick?
