Cue the opening theme song: “If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire the HR-Team.”

OK, so that’s a blatant rip-off of the opening credits of the A-Team — and the HR-Team doesn’t exist. But it should, because there’s a need for a “crack commando unit” of HR professionals who can be parachuted into hot spots at a moment’s notice.

So, elite HR professionals, grab your employment standards acts, best practice books and copies of Canadian HR Reporter, pack them in your duffel bag and start humming the theme song to a cheesy ‘80s TV show because your first assignment awaits: Ottawa.
