Employment and Training Problems in New Factories.
International Labour Office, Geneva (Switzerland).
Does management in newly established factories using highly advanced technology meet special problems in recruitment and training of their workers? Are the traditional training systems supplying the skilled manpower required for running highly sophisticated plants? These were the basic questions asked when the present study was started in seven European countries. Information was gathered by questionnaire enquiries made through direct interview with senior management staff, foremen, and workers in 29 factories. The monograph provides an analytical study of the opinions expressed about the impact on recruitment and training practices of the introduction of new technology. It describes in some detail the observations made during visits in the seven countries as to how recruitment and training have been carried out when new factories using advanced technology have been put into operation. It concludes with a discussion of the methods used in the inquiry and of the results obtained. A select bibliography of recent literature on the subject is included. (Author/PT)
