Description : Abstract
Marcus Jones reports on the affirmative action program at the Bank of Boston. Jones notes that twenty percent of the employees at the bank are minorities. Jones interviews Charles Gifford (Bank of Boston), who says that a diverse workforce makes sense. Gifford says that the bank will hire any qualified candidate, regardless of race. Gifford adds that he would like to hire more minorities in top bank positions. Jones reports that bank managers have set affirmative action goals that exceed federal requirements because they believe that an integrated workforce is good for business. Jones interviews Rosa Hunter (Director of Affirmative Action Planning for the Bank of Boston). Hunter talks about the bank's commitment to diversity. Jones reviews statistics concerning minority professionals and minority managers at the Bank of Boston. He notes that most minority employees are hired for entry-level and mid-level positions. Jones' report is accompanied by footage of employees at work at the Bank of Boston and employees in the company cafeteria. The tape includes additional footage of Bank of Boston employees in the offices and cafeteria.
