A STUDY OF FOREMAN'S CLUBS, THEIR EXTENT, THEIR ORGANIZATION, THEIR FUNCTION. SUMMARY REPORT TO THE FOREMANSHIP FOUNDATION.
KAMEL, I.A.; ODIORNE, G.S.
THERE ARE ABOUT TWO MILLION FOREMEN EMPLOYED IN THE UNITED STATES, SOME OF THEM UNION MEMBERS, BUT MANY BELONGING TO SOCIAL AND PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS. TO DETERMINE FOREMAN MEMBERSHIP IN NON-UNION FOREMAN ORGANIZATIONS, THE PURPOSE, ORGANIZATION, FINANCIAL SUPPORT, AND PROGRAMS OF SUCH CLUBS, AND THE RELATIONSHIP OF THE CLUB TO THE COMPANY EMPLOYING ITS MEMBERS, A QUESTIONNAIRE WAS MAILED TO THE 1,000 LARGEST COMPANIES IN THE UNITED STATES. OF THE 765 RESPONDENTS, 396 HAD A MANAGEMENT CLUB, 204 OF THEM AFFILIATED WITH THE NATIONAL MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATION OR THE NATIONAL COUNCIL OF INDUSTRIAL MANAGEMENT CLUBS, AND 192 INDEPENDENT. THE 77,000 MEMBERS OF THE RESPONDING CLUBS INCLUDED 54,000 FOREMEN, THE REMAINDER BEING MANAGEMENT PERSONNEL FROM PRESIDENTS TO OFFICE SUPERVISORS. CLUB ACTIVITIES, ASSESSED THROUGH VISITS TO 22 INDEPENDENT CLUBS AND THE TWO NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS AND THROUGH A QUESTIONNAIRE SENT TO THE INDEPENDENT CLUBS, WERE PRIMARILY SOCIAL AND SUPPORTED IN PART BY THE COMPANIES. THESE CLUBS, ONCE EXCLUSIVELY FOR FOREMEN, HAVE AN INCREASING MEMBERSHIP FROM HIGHER MANAGEMENT, AND MUST REDESIGN THEIR PROGRAMS TO SUIT EMERGING MEMBERSHIP STRUCTURE, EMPHASIZING MANAGEMENT DEVELOPMENT AND LEADERSHIP TRAINING.
