Scope and Contents Note

The Time Inc. Administration, Human Resources and Personnel Records span from 1939 to the 1990s and include files from Rosemarie Di Sapio, Director of Administration; Robert Steed, Vice President, Personnel Director; and John Bingle, Vice President, Human Resources. Many of the files from 1939 through the 1950s look like they were retained or collected for reference reasons.

Topics include Time Inc. budgets and budgets for the Human Resources and Personnel departments; Time Inc. strategic plans; union negotiations and contracts; transitioning employees during business mergers and takeovers such as with the Washington Star; agenda and materials from the Compensation Policy Committee and Administrative Committee; compensation plans; employee stock ownership plans; healthcare management proposals; implementation of databases or other systems; insurance summaries; pension plans; memoranda discussing implementation or changes of benefits and bonuses; summer internships; Equal Employment Opportunities (EEO) changes; marketing materials from outside sources; Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) forms; and employee handbooks.

While HR and Personnel are not the offices of record for some materials (budgets, strategic plans), these materials are retained here in the event they are the only record.

Because of the limited date range for these records, it is possible earlier records related to personnel matters were interfiled into RG 1: Subject Files, RG 2: Bio Files or RG 3: Reference Files. The majority of Human Resources and Personnel records created after the mid-1980s may have been handled using the retention policies established at that time and never archived.
