Article Abstract
An Exploration of the Contrasting Social Class and Workplace Expectations for Determining Chief Executive Officers in the United States vs the United Kingdom
Keywords:  Workplace Culture; Social Class; Ivy League and CEO Promotion
Scott Kenneth Campbell, Ph.D.
This paper sought to improve upon the understanding of the social class and workplace cultural expectations for the determination of Chief Executive Officers in the United States vs the United Kingdom. The author found that workplace cultural expectations were very different for aspiring executives in the United States vs the United Kingdom. In addition, the author found strong indications of a potential social class barrier for aspiring executives in the United Kingdom that was not evident in the United States. Workplace culture was determined by weekly hours worked by CEO's vs typical executives in the United States and the United Kingdom. Social class was determined by the exploration of undergraduate alma maters and consideration of whether these schools would be considered "Ivy League" or not.
