Title: Promotion stereotypes in the Singaporean workplace.
Authors: Koh, Eugene Wenhui.
Keywords: DRNTU::Social sciences::Psychology
Issue Date: 2009
Abstract: In an extension of research demonstrating the effects of ethnic stereotypes in the workplace, these three studies examined how the effects of ethnic stereotypes influenced promotion opportunities of individuals. In particular these studies examined the effects of Caucasian, Chinese, and Malay stereotypes on the individual’s promotability. The main prediction was that the Caucasian stereotype would be more favourable than the Chinese and Malay stereotype. This preference for the Caucasian lowers the promotability of the Chinese and Malay individual in Singapore. Recommendations for research in this area of study center on stereotypes for the other ethnic groups, the possible interactions between gender and the ethnic stereotypes, and how equality is maintained in the promotion process in a globalized Singapore.
