Uppsala University, Disciplinary Domain of Humanities and Social Sciences, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Business Studies.
1988 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Traditionally the financial service industry has been characterised byhigh mobility barriers due to extensive Government surveillance. Similarbarriers have also been existing for its employees, who havetended to be recruited among cautious candidates. Both these circumstanceshave undergone changes as the working conditions of theindustry have altered. An important event in this context is the introductionof modern computer and communication technology. It hasto some extent created new barriers to mobility by the requirementsfor extensive investments, but primarily it has reinforced tendenciesof deregulation thereby increasing competition This in turn has impliedthe creation of new instruments and the need for a new type ofemployees with another time and risk orientation than earlier. Theyconstitute a new knowledge elite, the introduction of which may beexpected to create tensions in traditional financial institutions.
