Industrial Guidelines for Undertaking a Hard-Core Employment Program: An Analytic Case Study of the Experience of an Urban Industrial Organization.
Feifer, Irwin; And Others
Based on an analytically evaluative case study of a New York City furniture department store's experiences with a Manpower Administration contract, this report deals with the development and progress of the program as analyzed by one investigator through interviews with almost all of the participants in the program. As a result of the study, several recommendations were made to serve as guidelines for industry personnel managers planning to undertake training-employment programs for the hard-core disadvantaged, including: (1) Consider a hard-core training program only when there is a clear understanding of the types and number of jobs available for trainees, (2) Consider alternatives to extensive programs when there is a need for workers in low paying, unskilled jobs, (3) Consider as many sources as feasible when recruiting, (4) Include regular staff members in the selection process, (5) Carefully analyze each job, and (6) Make a concerted effort to interpret the need for special training, education and counseling for hard-core trainees with supervisors and co-workers.
