QUESTIONS FOR ACCOUNTANTS AND BUSINESS ADVISORS, INC., CITY
Assume that it is 1989 when you are
answering these questions (when there are less data available):
- What additional data, if any, should
Shaughnessy try to obtain to understand the problem more
- Should ABA have a goal of
sex-neutral retention and promotion?
- Should ABA be willing to put in
place policies that favor women or that might decrease
retention/promotion of men? Should the firm put in place
policies that will increase turnover/retirement among
existing partners? What policies would you favor?
- What concrete steps should
Shaughnessy take to increase the retention and promotion
of women? For any step you recommend, be prepared to
describe its potential effects on the firm and how it
will fit with other HR policies.
Note: Exhibit 5 should really say that
16% of 82 (or 13) remain, of which 46% (or 6) are female. There
also is some confusion about the position of Supervisor.
