One of my linked in contacts, Debbie Jarvis, has referred me to a very interesting story on the BBC website. HR Professionals when you are asked by your MD to identify possible risks associated with redundancies make sure you include this one.

Having just finished reading A Tale of Two Cities as part of my MA I can confirm the French do take protest that one step further, although not quite tumbrils and guillotines,  “bossnapping” is a new activity and word for my employment law lexicon.

Given that one of the bossnapped includes an HR professional is HR’s risk premium going to go up to be as risky a profession as mercenary in Iraq or deepsea diver?
