    You have triggered me and I am sending you a micro-aggression in the hopes that it will help with your "personal growth".

    Any term which belittles people and tries to obfuscate what is actually being communicated:
    Downsizing
    Rightsizing
    Human capital
    Workforce engagement


    Just say what you mean:
    You are fired.
    You are all fired.
    You will be treated worse than a robot.
    You are lazy.

    Deep dive.

    Used to refer to a very shallow investigation the likes of which Wikipedia could usually put to shame.

    Alternative facts.

    Used to refer to made up shite.

    And 4D analysis. I didn’t understand it when it was said. I still didn’t understand it when it was “explained”.

    hmmm. that's a buzzword you love to hate? not sure it is in the same spirit as the rest of the responses or the op


    anyway, I think it was in the Elements of Style where they complained about the tendency to add -wise to any word and coin a new (bad): profit-wise, etc. examples abound

    though not a buzzword, a word I love to hate is "de-plane" at the end of a flight. I recently heard George Carlin's bit on that industry. Will try to dig it up.

    “Disrupt” needs to be put on an ice floe and pushed out to sea.

    This thread is going to generate some pushback.

    In fact, I was thinking of pushing back right now.

    I have recently made my peace with it, that it is one example of Americanism that won't go away (it's so ubiquitous that it's no longer confined to corporate verbal diarrhoea), particularly since it seems to be spreading in Blighty, particularly in and around London. However, I still think "No, don't. Keep your grubby paws to yourself, you bloody creep" whenever I hear it but have developed some level of tolerance.

    However, I still struggle with "circle back".

    That's a really good one. So sick of hearing that word.

    That said, I think it's actually one of those words that is beneficial in one way: it betrays the fact that the speaker is actually clueless about the subject.

    Artisanal in the context of a large corporation means the artisanal product is anything but.

    Award winning means the product actually isn’t very good.

    Having intangibles kind of means the same thing: looking for greatness where little exists.
