The Human Age

Translation into plain English Redundant phrase

Perpetrator ManpowerGroup

Usage example "Our $22 billion company creates unique time to value through a comprehensive suite of innovative solutions that help clients win in the Human Age."

Lucy’s commentary Winner of the 2011 Golden Flannel Award for utter gibberish from a company that should know better. Makes me nostalgic for the Jurassic Age as I don't think dinosaurs had any truck with innovative suites at all.
