Please stop referring to people as Resources!!!

A projector is a resource. Natural gas is a resource. Oil is a resource. I’m a human. When I work for a company I’m an employee – aka staff. When I’m referred to as a Resource it makes me feel like a commodity line item on a spreadsheet. Please use the word staff instead. It makes me feel human again and makes you look like you care.

  1. The best reference I’ve heard is instead of resource is “the talent!”. However people think you are being patronizing. 🙂
