Human Resourcefulness: HR lessons from The Office’s Michael Scott

This summer, Benefits Canada is launching a new podcast, Human Resourcefulness, that looks at problems presented in fictional workplaces and asks experts how they’d advise those companies to respond. The first episode looks at Michael Scott, regional manager at paper sales company Dunder Mifflin, from the U.S. version of the TV show The Office. 

Benefits Canada‘s Sara Tatelman and Jann Lee spoke with Priya Sarin, a partner at Toronto employment law firm Whitten & Lublin, and Norm Sabapathy, executive vice-president of people at Cadillac Fairview Corp. Ltd.


Tune in throughout the summer for the next episode of the Human Resourcefulness podcast.

Clips in this podcast came from the following episodes of The Office, produced by Deedle-Dee Productions and Reveille Productions, in association with Universal Television: “Sexual Harassment” (2005, Season 2, Episode 2) and “Diversity Day” (2005, Season 1, Episode 2), both written by B.J. Novak.
