A Group Orientation Approach for Facilitating the Work of Adjustment of the Hard-Core Unemployed. Final Report.
Rosen, Hjalmar; Teahan, John E.
The major objective of this project was to achieve a lasting integration of Negro hard-core unemployed men in an ongoing corporate work force. It was intended to develop values necessary for successful employment, particularly with regard to regularity of attendance, punctuality, conformity to work rules and regulations, and motivation to accept and perform job demands. The general assumption behind this study is that effective employment of the hard-core unemployed is dependent on "dual acculturation," involving mutual adaptations by the new workers and their employers (especially first line supervisors).
