Our Favorite HR Memes to Kick Off 2021

Summing up how HR feels now that we’re entering the pandemic transition period

by Nikhil Bendre

One thing is agreeable across the board – 2020 was a rollercoaster. But it’s not over yet! As HR professionals, dealing with the hurdles that have been thrown at us has been utterly exhausting, from navigating new COVID-19 regulations to remote work policies. Now that we’re entering this strange transition period of the pandemic, with the vaccine-rollout gaining traction, the need for HR support only increases. 

Some of us have gotten really creative online, making memes that perfectly encapsulate what we’re all feeling. These memes definitely gave us a great laugh and now we’re trying to share the laughter with you! Enjoy!
