“A Rewarding Life?” by Don Mackinley
My involvement in international human resources and reward and related matters essentially began in the late-1970s, almost as soon as I left university. My initial exposure was through various roles with Employment Conditions Abroad (ECA), a trade association, where I spent almost a decade of my working life. I then took on a number of regional and group remuneration and benefits roles (with Schering Plough and then Fisons plc initially and then Cadbury Schweppes plc [CS] which became Cadbury plc in 2008). Probably the most interesting aspect of my career development was that I was appointed to the most senior reward role in CS after only 6 months with the company and thus only about 4 years’ total specialist (and no HR generalist) experience in corporate environments. I have drafted this piece in a somewhat lighthearted Polonius style (ref: Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”) as some pointers for a newly appointed Head of Global/International Reward.
