As legendary and reassuring as auntie’s knitted Christmas jumpers, the CIPD Christmas Caption Competition is back for a NINTH straight year.

We’ve commissioned another three topical cartoons - starting with a one that recalls some of the discussions we’ve had this year on tattoos in the workplace ;)

Another bunch of cracking prizes - starting with something a bit different for this first caption: I’m the very proud owner of two Anthony Burrill woodblock posters - one of which I won in an online competition (not this one, obviously). We thought this poster was very appropriate for this community. We’ll sort out the framing with the owner of the winning caption in the New Year.

Many of you will know this by now: you are invited to post your witty caption suggestions below. Extra points if you can somehow wangle in an “HR” slant to your caption! Funny is good, too - although be warned, the judges are tough nuts to crack (or just nuts). The usual guidelines on rude words and gratuitous product placement apply. Thank you.

Please note that these festive threads are open to everyone (although the other forums remain member-only), so do feel free to share the link!!

The thread will remain open to entries until midnight on 31st December - and the winners (one per cartoon) will be announced when we all return from the New Year break.

OK, time to switch on the (cheap) Christmas lights and to declare the festive caption competition open for yet another year.

Here we go with the first cartoon for you to caption*

* Tip: we’re looking for *captions* - which tend to be better when short-ish in length.
