We’ll say some unpopular things, keep it real, and do everything we can to remind the world that Human Resources people are people too. #notHR

Love the honesty!

Alexa and Tyson and beautifully honest with their opinions and it is so refreshing (it also helps that they are genuinely good people). I’ve always had an interest in HR and I love getting the inside look at what HR departments deal with.

For the Toby Flendersons

I follow hr.shook on IG and TikTok! I die at all their memes, polls, and their podcast episodes because they are SO relatable. It’s very niche for those in HR but for a department that gets so much hate and has so many weird stereotypes (HR is not your friend, HR only cares about the company, it’s HR’s fault, etc.), it feels so refreshing to hear shared experiences, frustrations, and annoyances from people that really know what actually goes into this profession!
