I remember when I started my very first job in Human Resources. In those days it was called Personnel Management and I was Assistant Personnel Manager.
I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to get that job. The Personnel Manager was a man called Ron. He looked like Santa Claus and had the kindest face.
Unfortunately, as I discovered, he was also the most racist, sexist and bigoted man I had ever met. He was also dishonest, controlling and manipulative. I think that about covers it.
I was green and eager to make a difference.
