Maybe, avoid these holidays workplace gifts for 2016. But, I have a great idea for 2017…

Yes, it’s that time for Career Builder’s list of most unusual holiday workplace gifts.

If you’re one of the 20-ish percent of folks who give gifts to a co-worker or boss, you may be struggling to find a last-minute gift. If you have $20 in your pockets, which is usually the most that people spend on such office cheer, just keep on walking if you pass any of these on Aisle 4:

  • Two left-handed gloves
  • Coconut bra
  • Jar of gravy
  • A fake lottery ticket
  • A real stuffed duck
  • Toilet paper that looked like money
  • Post-it Notes
  • Dish detergent
  • A pen holder that looks like a crime scene victim
  • A comic book of an obscure movie
  • A handmade ornament for a sports team the recipient had never heard of
  • A singing chicken
  • A whip

Give the greatest gift of HR compliance ever in 2017.

Easy there. Breathe. Just breathe. Let the wave of excitement pass over you. Ok, now…

Has it been some time since your company trained employees and supervisors on [insert compliance topic]?

Better question: when was the last time you had a super-fun, entertaining training session that really stuck with your workforce?

Geez, I mean, if only such a trainer existed! This guru would have to be equal parts brilliant and blogalicious. As erudite as he is snarky. Why God?!? Why have you forsaken us? Won’t you light the way for my eager audience by revealing this Solomonic (and, possibly, blasphemous) Being! This trainer of trainers!!!

Hey, seriously, if you’re interested in some hella-awesome training for your workplace in 2017, email me for details.
