ABSTRACT
The article discusses characteristics that contribute to being effective in a company's human resources (HR) department and to proving an individual would make a good non-executive director. A survey shows that firms looking to recruit non-executives prefer those who have robust personalities with a strong business acumen. The ability of being able to work at the intersection of organizational, business and contextual areas is described as a vital part of developing an insight-led profession in HR.
