ABSTRACT
Taking a pop at the quality of HR directors is a favorite preoccupation for many associated with the profession. Executive Colin Povey's problems in recruiting a new HR director are all the more surprising given that it is a board position that's on offer. The company is Carlsberg UK and, because of his background, he is clearer than most about the impact good HR can have on the business. Most industry leaders haven't a clue about the compelling evidence linking effective people management with strategies to improve bottom line performance. The main fault lies with a succession of HR directors who have failed to champion their cause by not demonstrating the value of strong HR in a language the board understands and struggling to show how HR works in the organization.
