Final Comments

From the Paper:

"The results of the interviews were not surprising. I began each interview by indicating that I had heard - "through the grape-vine" - that there were morale problems within the organization between various ethnic and religious factions; I subsequently asked each individual if this was, indeed, the case. The managing director and the senior partner (one white, one black, both practicing Christians) insisted that the problem was "blown out of proportion" and involved only a small faction of disgruntled employees - of which four had already left the organization. The human resources manager (who was white, Christian and female) largely corroborated the assertions of the aforementioned persons, although she did say that she was concerned enough about the tensions within the company to consider re-orienting the company's training procedures and "cultural sensitivity" course for new agents. The agents, however, were quite different in their responses."
