ABSTRACT
The article looks at the influence of the journey of human resources (HR) from transactional to transformational function on a group of in-house lawyers. After hearing about the transformation in the function of HR, the lawyers realised that by colluding with their internal customers in believing their role was to provide a transactional service, they had gained a reputation of being essential but not desirable. Only when they reminded themselves of the difference good lawyers can make did they regain confidence to promote their value.
