ABSTRACT
The article features Alastair Wallace, people and change consultant at KPMG. According to Wallace, he would probably be a doctor if he was not working in the human resources (HR) field. He says his most embarrassing moment at a job interview happened when he was running an assessment centre for call-centre staff. Wallace adds that he hates the term "rightsizing," since hiding bad news behind jargon is cowardly.
