The article reports that the £500,000 salary packaged on offer to the new director general of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) has gained mass reaction to individuals in Great Britain. According to a survey, a record number of respondents said the wage on offer to Geoff Armstrong's replacement when he retires in June 2008 does not justify such a huge salary. The average salary of most human resource staff is about £30,000.
