The article focuses on the use of job titles by human resource (HR) management to boost employee morale. Nick Parfitt, manager of HR consultancy Cubiks, says simply changing an employee's job title can be an effective way of acknowledging and rewarding an employee's contribution to the business. Parfitt warns that other employees may feel they have been indirectly demoted if their colleague is suddenly given a new title.
