Experiences in Participation

By Pearl Ortenberg, Frieda Fine

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Social Service, December 1932

The Association of Federation Social Workers, upon taking stock of its accomplishments since the organization's inception, realized that it did not know to what extent it had accomplished one of the primary objectives: facilitating the participation of the workers in formulating favorable personnel practices. The study conducted to address this objective illuminated the growing awareness on the part of the social worker that she/he has problems in common with the industrial worker; professional problems include the fact that she/he does not find the title "professional" compensatory for unsatisfactory salary scales, there is insecurity of tenure, as well as a limited voice in the formulation of those polices and practices which had in the past originated with the administrative staff.
