Employee Promotion & Transfer Policies. Personnel Policies Forum Survey No. 120.
Bureau of National Affairs, Inc., Washington, DC.
This report presents the results of a survey on employee promotion and transfer policies used in over 150 organizations. It includes information on methods used for publicizing job vacancies, procedures for processing inhouse applications, general policies on promotions and transfers, and policies for promotion of lower-level employees to first level supervisory positions. Because these policies often vary from one employee group to another, results are reported separately for three employee groups: office/clerical (white collar), plant/service (blue collar), and professional/technical (below the managerial level). The report is based on responses from 166 personnel executives. Of the organizations represented by the respondents, 51 percent are manufacturing companies, 28 percent are nonmanufacturing businesses, and 21 percent are nonbusiness organizations such as educational institutions, hospitals, and government agencies. As well as summarizing common practices, the report presents examples of particular policies, procedures, and forms selected from the participating organizations. (Author/JM)
