Public Career. Replacing the Formal and Political Leaders
The social and ethical human resources management of the 50s was replaced by the safe institution, a place later on occupied by less predictable and stable institutions lacking the previous mass characteristic. The individuals expect more than a salary from their workplace.

These elements are treated formally just like any other resources of which a certain institutional behaviour is expected. Will it work? An essential condition is the equidistant adherence to this behaviour. The public domain, conceived as a desirable segment potentially able to normalize growth and maturation, allows for remarkable individual and collective evolutions by accepting lateral promotions as opposed to the exclusively vertical ones seen as inefficient and ineffectual in certain circumstances.
