Impact upon the Organization of Hiring the Disadvantaged. Report of a Study of Two Companies.
Chin, Robert; And Others
This study of company programs to employ disadvantaged and minority people is based on the observations of the investigators and on interviews and questionnaire data obtained from the management and employees of two types of business, service and manufacturing. It examines the ways in which organizational processes, organizational relationships, and employee attitudes were affected by different aspects of program implementation, and should enable key personnel in an organization to anticipate and understand the problems and benefits of such programs. The report describes management and employee forces which initiated and influenced the development of the programs, the nature of their implementation and development, the consequences of events which occurred, and changes in attitudes of company personnel. Recommendations for development and management of such programs are also presented. (Author/BH)
