So HR invited us to a mandatory hour long talk on why rest and relaxation is important for work efficiency.

On a Saturday.

You can’t make this shit up.

    Tell her or him that it's time for your rest so he or she should fuck off with mandatory meetings outside of working hours.

    I LOVE the expression that they "invite" you to a "mandatory" talk... Sums up their attitude perfectly!

    woke strategy to checkmark "effort"

    point is not to make employees environment but to look like you do everything for it. Does not matter that is counter productive

    The real HR team invites you for an hour of drinks on a Friday.

    Imagine unironically attending a mandatory hour long meeting on your weekend

    And let me guess it was in-house so you had to commute?!

    Plot twist: they do their best to piss you off and the meeting ends by one of them going: “you all look very bored and pissed off... this is why it’s important to relax on Saturday and not attend to stupid meetings.”

    Then they do a mic drop and disconnect leaving you speechless.

    I don't attend mandatory HR bullshit meetings unless it's on company time during my regular scheduled hours.

    I'll be honest, I don't attend them then either 😂

    I just ask if they have a problem with my performance in relation to <meeting title> and if they say no then I just shrug and say "then I guess I don't have to be there"

    At first my sleepy eyes read hour long walk. That actually would accomplish more than a talk...
    I would either do nothing or definitely organise a counter with a series of relaxing photos outdoors and a caption "great talk mission accomplished". Send it to the whole organisation instead of attending.
    When getting flack, you just say you thought it was a joke. Something this stupid can't be possibly be real...

    @Lyniven No I had to attend a made up dental appointment. In truth a root canal would’ve been more enjoying than sitting through that.
