Scope and Contents

Statistics, pamphlets and correspondence concerning the personnel practices of the YWCA of the U.S.A. Annual statistical data tracks the vacancies, placements and turnover throughout the YWCA of the U.S.A. and additional statistical reports gather data on turnover and loss, recruiting African American candidates, recruiting from summer schools, open jobs and candidate pools and first contacts in the recruiting process. The statistics are presented with little or no descriptive reports. Published pamphlets include recruiting materials for YWCA of the U.S.A. positions, personnel policy manuals and job descriptions. The microdex target is erroneously labeled microdex 3 but it is actually microdex 4.
