Identification of Management and Personnel Responsibility to Provide and Accept Opportunities for Improvement Thru Vocational and Educational Programs. Evaluation of PROJECT IMPROVE.
Coast Guard, Washington, DC. Office of Personnel.
Project Improve, the new title for the Coast Guard Aircraft Repair and Supply Center (AR&SC) Testing and Counseling Program in Elizabeth City, N.C., expresses the idea of this study: to assist all employees in gaining better understanding of their full potential and their training needs. The results of Project Improve are listed in tables throughout this study, implying that it has worked effectively for the AR&SC; it can be considered a prototype for other Coast Guard centers; it would not necessarily have the same results under different conditions; and a more detailed evaluation of it must wait until the program's effect has brought about empirically measurable changes. Results showed increases in employee participation in educational opportunities; increases in employee productivity and morale; a favorable reception to the program by the community educational institutions, the local union, and employees; participation in after hours training inversely related to both educational level and job position level; and no increase in personnel or budget of AR&SC necessary for the program. (Appendixes contain letters and announcements pertaining to the program.) (jf)
