ABSTRACT
The article focuses on anonymity as a leading cause of job misery. It is stated that a person cannot be fulfilled, regardless of his income or love for his work, without a manager who cares about him as a unique individual. A reported reason why managers do not get to know employees is their being instructed during interviews to avoid personal questions that might appear as discriminatory. The suggestion for managers to act like human beings during interviews is also indicated.
