PUBLIC EMPLOYEE TRAINING ON THE STATE LEVEL IN THE UNITED STATES. RESEARCH SERIES, NUMBER 8.
MOAN, CHARLES E., JR.
TO SURVEY INSERVICE TRAINING FOR PUBLIC EMPLOYEES WITHIN STATE GOVERNMENTS, QUESTIONNAIRES WERE SENT TO ALL 50 STATES, PUERTO RICO, AND THE VIRGIN ISLANDS. OF THE 37 STATES AND POSSESSIONS RESPONDING, TWO REPORTED NO TRAINING ACTIVITIES, 16 HAD A CENTRAL TRAINING OFFICE TO DIRECT AND COORDINATE TRAINING PROGRAMS, AND 19 INDICATED THAT INSERVICE TRAINING WAS CONDUCTED ENTIRELY BY INDIVIDUAL DEPARTMENTS. THE NUMBER OF FULL-TIME PROFESSIONAL TRAINING PERSONNEL IN CENTRAL TRAINING AGENCIES RANGED FROM ZERO TO TEN. SALARIES FOR TRAINERS ON ALL LEVELS RANGED FROM $3600 TO $15,432 ANNUALLY. MANY STATES DEPENDED HEAVILY ON TRAINING FACILITIES AND STAFF OF OUTSIDE AGENCIES. FEW STATES HAD WRITTEN STATEMENTS OF TRAINING POLICY OR STANDARDS FOR ESTABLISHING OR EVALUATING TRAINING PROGRAMS. TOP AND MIDDLE MANAGERS WERE MOST OFTEN TRAINED, FOLLOWED BY SUPERVISORS AND CLERICAL STAFF. TRAINING FOR UNSKILLED AND SEMI-SKILLED EMPLOYEES RANKED NEAR THE BOTTOM IN MOST AGENCIES. TRAINING FUNCTIONS DID NOT HAVE THE STATURE OF OTHER STATE GOVERNMENT POSTS SUCH AS SALARY ADMINISTRATION OR EXAMINATION PREPARATION. (APPENDIXES ARE THE QUESTIONNAIRE AND TRAINING OFFICER JOB DESCRIPTIONS FROM SEVERAL STATES.)
