HR HaikuHi there!

In the spirit of making this blog 20% less serious this year, every Friday in 2016 I’m going to share a quick little something that’s benefits-related and also (hopefully) fun.

Human-resources-related haikus, Benefits Blender game questions (you’ll see), random GIFs, collectible HR Superheroes cards, weird ideas the ALEX team we haven’t thought of yet…in the famous words of Lionel Richie, it’s gonna be a paaaarty. And guess what: all you need to bring is yourself. (And some ice, if you already have some. But seriously, don’t make a special trip.)

To start things off, here are two HR Haikus dreamed up by ALEX communication expert David Daskal:


Open Enrollment

Is anybody out there?

I’ll take last year’s plan.


My wellness program

Suggested I was unwell.

Go ahead – kale me.


If you’re up for the challenge, share your own HR Haiku(s) in the comments section below. We’d love to hear ’em! (The rule is: Line 1 = 5 syllables; Line 2 = 7 syllables; Line 3 = 5 syllables).
