HR Horror Stories from London…

If you had the chance to pop along to see meet the team from Activ People HR, then you would have been asked for any “HR Horror Stories”.

After much deliberation… the winner is…

“Employee with significant wind problem – required the gift of charcoal pants!”

The bottle of Moet is on it’s way to the lucky winner!

Some other great stories we had were…

“Best Sickness Absence Excuse – My 3 alarm clocks didn’t go off”

“Candidate turned up to interview on the 4th floor – very scared of heights and knew the interview was on the 4th floor. Had to crawl on the floor across the office to interview room!”

“The candidate’s skirt caught on fire in the interview after sitting next to a faulty heater”

“For not turning up to an interview – I forgot what day of the week it was…”


On behalf of our sponsors Activ People HR we would like to say a BIG thank you to everyone who came by our stand G26 and talked to us about how they manage their staff & helped us gain a real insight to how companies feel around this subject.

We always talk to both our existing clients and potential clients on the real issues they face when it comes to managing their staff and the feedback we achieved over the past two days will now help us move forward and better Activ People HR.

The welsh cakes that we took along also went down a real hit, some people from the day one even came back on day two to thank us for introducing them to such delicious delicacy.

We’d also like to thank everyone who came along to meet our Editor Kate whilst she was there, it’s always great to put faces to names.


Congratulations to the CIPD for a fantastic event and we look forward to next year!
