Productivity Ratios Topic of Bank Women Association Conference


Robinson, Robin, THE JOURNAL RECORD


Faltering productivity ratios in the United States and proposed measures for reversing those losses are the subject of a Friday morning address to the state conference of the National Assocation of Bank Women Inc. in Oklahoma City.

The discussion of the "Productivity Paradox" is one of several agenda items that both the association and the Oklahoma Bankers Association will attend while the groups have concurrent conferences at the Sheraton Century Center Thursday through Saturday.

E. Lee Beard, executive vice president and chief operating officer at Citizens Savings Bank in Silver Springs, Md., will present "Productivity: Turning the Myth into Reality," at 10:50 a.m. Friday.

During the past 50 years, the United States' literacy rate has fallen from 90 percent to 808 percent, while Japan's has risen to 95 percent, said June O'Steen, senior vice president of Southwestern Bank in Oklahoma City and the bank women association's national director of the south central region.

The falling literacy rate is partly to blame for this country's falling productivity, she said. By focussing on some of the probable causes of this productivity paradox, the group hopes some of these problems will be addressed, O'Steen said.

During the program, Beard will also discuss the demographics of the U.S. workforce during the next century, O'Steen said.

A panel discussion on the productivity paradox is scheduled for 3 p.m. Friday, with Beard moderating comments by Ellen Chitwood, vice president of Liberty National Bank & Turst Co. of Oklahoma City, Dr. Jeanine Rhea, a professor at Oklahoma State University and E. Wilson Roberts, chairman and chief executive officer of First National Bank of Ada. . .
