ABSTRACT
The author describes and praises an executive whom he previously worked with. According to the author, the executive was one of the pioneering board-level human resources (HR) directors who gamely took on the challenges facing large organisations in the 1980s. He says that the executive stood for something, an approach to employees that was built on life experience and insight. He adds that the executive's conviction that treating people well and engaging their interest beyond the boundaries of narrow job definitions gave hard results and was compelling.
