Office Space Still Number 1

HR Strange But True
by Stephen Bruce, PhD, PHR

What’s your favorite type of movie: A sentimental love story? An insightful documentary? A crime-fighting action flick? What about a film about work?

While the latter may not be the first thing that comes to mind, there are some good ones out there. 

A recent BLR® poll asked readers to rank their favorite workplace movies. 

Here are the poll results:

  1. Office Space
  2. The Devil Wears Prada (a close second)
  3. 9 to 5
  4. Working Girl
  5. Horrible Bosses

Office Space, a comedy about a group of unhappy colleagues who decide to steal money from their company, holds the top spot. 

The film, released in 1999, just beat out The Devil Wears Prada, a comedy-drama based on Lauren Weisberger’s novel.

It seems that not many poll takers liked Horrible Bosses. Perhaps the characters’ inappropriate behavior—and the potential lawsuits—made HR pros cringe.

Do you have a favorite workplace movie? Let us know below.

    Of course, Office Space has the advantage of constantly being aired on TV!
