New Workers in the Banking Industry: A Minority Report.
Corwin, R. David
To investigate the effects of the employment policies and practices of New York City banks upon minority employment, six banks were selected on the basis of their higher than average minority group employment. Nearly 200 interviews were conducted with bank personnel, including policy formulators, policy executors, and lower level personnel. These nonstructured interviews, each of which was shaped according to the person interviewed, were supplemented by data collected independently by a few of the banks. The results show that many minority workers have been employed recently, but with quite limited upgrading and career mobility. Equal promotion opportunities will require the complete dedication of management, with promotion from within, accompanied by the necessary training to provide career opportunities for entry minority workers. Recommendations include: (1) establishing an internship program providing college tuition plus a salary for part time employment and full time summer employment, and (2) providing a variety of services such as day care, legal, and medical services for employees.
