Oops–I Deleted the HR Department: Why Backing Up Company Files is Crucial

During a routine server swap, John Davies, IT Director at Kapper Media, inadvertently deleted the company’s entire HR department, sources confirm. In an attempt to cover up his role in deleting HR’s digital presence, Davis went a step further by doing the unthinkable–deleting the department’s physical presence, too.

Unfortunately for Davies, and against all odds, a few people did, in fact, notice that the entire HR function had mysteriously disappeared overnight. New research, however, may suggest that science, not malice, played a contributing role into Davies’ HR vanishing act. Cornell University researchers are currently studying the link between HR departments and the anger, sometimes even violence, they seem to create in otherwise docile computer geeks. Unpublished research from Dr. Peter Gibbon and Dr. Erica Crane indicates that the correlation may be, in fact, related to wearing down due to extreme and constant friction.
