Career Issues in Organizations.
This document contains four papers from a symposium on career issues in organizations. "Learning During Downsizing: Stories from the Survivors" (Sharon J. Confessore) describes a study to demonstrate that survivors of corporate downsizings undertake learning activities and use many resources to accomplish the learning tasks. "Organizational Career Planning and Development: Changes and Trends in Practice" (Brenda S. Gardner) reports on research to determine current organizational career planning and placement practices in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area and to compare and contrast results with a 1990 survey of large organizations. Its findings are that career development practices had very similar systems, but current plans centered around creating more formal and structured systems for training, mentoring, succession planning, and integration with other human resource systems. "Employee Strategies and Corporate Development--Consensus without Conflict?" (Anders Vind) considers current development in the workplace from the employee's point of view, as based on research between technicians and other white collar workers in Danish companies. "Women of Color in Corporate America: We Still Have Far to Go" (Lyn Clark Pegg) reports a study to develop a deeper understanding of the work lives of women of color in corporate settings, shedding light on the barriers and facilitators to the participants' fulfillment of their potential.
