In the business world of the twenty-first century, absenteeism due to mental illness and related to work continues to grow and we do not see any success in the responses to stem this evil. Entire classes of society feel disenfranchised, and demonstrate violently in the streets. Suicide and drug abuse are at an all-time high. Young generations refuse the status quo in the work place. With a long managerial experience in a large French service company, but also his expertise as a logotherapist, Henri Gillet attributes this discomfort to the demeaning representation of the human being that business conveys and which poisons the daily life of its employees. An infantilizing vision of man permeates, to varying degrees, all strata of the company. The author invites us to take a detour through Viktor Frankl's logotherapy to understand that everyone absolutely needs to find meaning in their life, including their professional life which is hampered by the relational and organizational dysfunctions of the business structure. Addressing this will involve new behaviors at work, but also another type of organization. In this perspective, the Human Resources Department will see its responsibility increased and renewed, because it is up to it to make the humanist commitment into a reality. Henri Gillet shares a new vision of the professional field, which allows everyone to rethink their relationship to work, and more generally the meaning of their life.
