I am a freelance HR Consultant living in the South West, prior to self employment I worked for a major UK retailer for 27 years. Redundancy gave me the chance to completely change my life and I am loving it, would love to hear from anyone who wants to discuss HR or Coaching. www.Deborahmorris.co.uk
Interesting findings. I wondered if following on from the Labour Governments McLeod report on Employee engagement, a lot of which talks about fairness and good employers, if the public sector will now be open to looking at options including pay cuts and not just mass redundancies - we will wait and see!

After 30 years experience in senior management, half of it in Hr, it is often the 2nd one, Managers dealing with issues promptly, objectively and in a reasonable manner that lets organisations down - thanks for this will Tweet to allow more people to access your plain English advice - regards D
As a vegetarian barbie cooking can be a challenge for friends so here is one of the simplest recipes I make, meat eaters don't miss the meat!
Pitta breads, toasted, split and left to cool - Baby spinach leaves - jar of ready roasted peppers in oil, drained - a block of soft cheese such as Taleggio
Line the cooled pittas with spinach leaves, fill with the peppers and cheese, wrap in foil and barbeque for 4-5 minutes each side. Unwrap and enjoy but they will be hot!
As long as you prepare the pittas with the spinach you can mix the fillings with whatever you like. Other good combinations include:
Cooked mushrooms, garlic and goats cheese
Sliced red onion, grilled and cheddar
Brie and cranberry sauce
These are just as good cooked in a hot oven for 10minutes if the weather is not quite barbie!
Fabulous, so simple but so true!
Fab article - I can't help but think though that the reason men are reluctant to take their paternity leave is because over the years they may have witnessed how this has impacted on women's careers!!
What a fantastic thought provoking article, and thank you for introducing Danah Zohar to me! Not a lot to comment on but it really struck a cord with me and what you hear and see in that generation.
I really like how at the end you talk about 'for and from them', really inclusive which so many businesses miss today.
Many thanks Deborah
