Human Resourcefulness: HR lessons from The Office’s Dwight Schrute and Jim Halpert

The second episode of Benefits Canada’s new podcast, Human Resourcefulness, continues this week with a look at The Office‘s Dwight Schrute and Jim Halpert.

Dwight cares a lot about his company, but his suspicion and lack of humour make him a difficult colleague to work with. Jim seems like a great guy to grab a beer with but he doesn’t want to stay with the company for the long term and he wastes a lot of time at the office. 

Priya Sarin (Whitten & Lublin), Norm Sabapathy (Cadillac Fairview Corp. Ltd.) and Gord Frost (Mercer) weigh in on how to motivate the Dwights and Jims of the real world.

Tune in later this month for the next episode of the Human Resourcefulness podcast.

Clips in this podcast came from the following episode of The Office (U.S. version), produced by Deedle-Dee Productions and Reveille Productions, in association with Universal Television: “Health Care” (2005, Season 1, Episode 3), written by Paul Lieberstein.
