An update on linkedin (http://www.linkedin.com/) led me to Sanjeev's blog post. Sanjeev is a Sr. (ex)colleague of mine. You can reach this post
Excerpts from his blog:
I relate this to a many HR policies in organizations that are focused on driving compliance but not commitment. Policies that are put in place to stop the 10% of issues from happening but 90% of others getting inconvenienced and demotivated.
I liked his narrative style and the way he connected the speedbreakers and Flyovers to the HR practice of Policy making.. although having been driving in Kerala for some time now, I may have to dispute to the percentages that he's used :-)
I had earlier read this post http://gauteg.blogspot.com/2009/07/business-managers-should-be-hr-business.html on Gautam's blog - and would like to point Sanjeev's case as a real life example of a Business Manager turned HR Leader :-)
