Corporate Jargon

by Celine on April 8th, 2008

Assmosis? Cube farm?  Ever heard these words but don’t know what they’re really about?   Check out this humorous list of office jargon.

Also found a funny article over at NewlyCorporate about corporate jargon euphemisms and what they really mean.

In other news, Yvonne Russell of Home Biz Notes wrote another update on how her new e-mail system is working out.  Yvonne recommends batching email tasks as a productivity tip.

    We used to play a “silent bingo” game during meetings. It was based entirely on corporate jargon. We created bingo boards, and instead of numbers put in commonly used jargon phrases, or things our boss like to say that just simply annoyed us.

    Whenever someone would win, we would silently mouth “bingo” to everyone but, of course, our boss.

    I recently read None of your Business by Philip Bryer which gives the whole silly business a well-deserved, and hilarious, thrashing.
