You know you're living in a peak economic cycle when you go to a corporate event, and the entertainment rivals old Rome in the Coliseum.
Lions. Tigers. Potential loss of life. ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?
Email subscribers, click through to the site if you don't see the Instagram video embedded below. OC Tanner, by all counts a fine, outstanding recognition firm (trying like everyone else in the game to become a cloud-based technology firm) had an analyst event last September in Snowbird, UT.
The video is of some ski stunt jumpers doing something like 15 flips in a row - no snow, so they land in a pool of water.
An HR Capitalist correspondent was there and met at least one of the jumpers, who was on the last US Winter Olympic team.
Post recession, you had a crappy DJ at your company event.
Peak economic cycle? You better get an Olympian risking his life for the mob to the tune of Ozzy's Crazy Train. After all, that transition to becoming a cloud-based company just doesn't happen. Bells and whistles are needed.
ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED? Make sure you pick up our goodie bag with a t-shirt and a flash drive before you leave the park.
And yes, we all saw this and left our investment accounts in 90% equities. No shocker the market dropped hard in Q4 when we saw this at the end of Q3.
