16460190_sOur new office administrator has set up the inaugural Halloween party and parade for the children and pets of attorneys and staff for 4pm today.  This decision, like all decisions in an office, is not without controversy.  I have heard everything from “what a cute idea” to “dogs and children should not be in the office.”  It reminds me that Human Resources professionals go through this drama every day and probably could use a laugh.

I hope that Chrissie’s selection for today’s 5 Minute Laugh Session is not an omen for how our office Halloween party and parade for kids (and pets!) is going to go. Here are the results of a focus group trying to see if kids would like healthy alternatives to candy.  I can say it is a complete and total failure, but hilarious.
