This article provides information on employment in the world's largest banks. The author notes that this study replicates and updates earlier ones that were conducted at the start of the 1970s. The findings indicate that productivity has increased among the world's largest banks and that the smaller of these banks have shown the greatest improvements. The author discusses some of the reasons for this increase in productivity pointing to the standardization of services, the simplification of procedures and the investment into technologies such as computers as all being significant factors.
