Manpower Developments: Problems and Prospects. Conference Series No. 12.
Czarnecki, Edgar R.
The theme of this conference was the full utilization of human resources. "The Federal Government's Impact on Manpower Training," by Stanley Ruttenberg focused on the interaction of federal, state, and local systems of government with community action agencies, manpower committees, and councils in providing increased job opportunities. "An Assessment of Iowa Manpower," by Harold E. Hughes stressed the fact that we have fallen short in one major area, namely, matching men and jobs. These two speeches are presented in full, together with papers presented at five concurrent workshops which were designed to provide stimulating areas for concentrated attention on the resolution of difficulties in recruiting, hiring, promoting, and retiring workforce participants. Recommendations include: (1) Management, unions, and government must work together for the resolution of our social needs, (2) Management needs a specific program for each level of skill, (3) The status of the skilled worker must be elevated, (4) The image of government service must be improved, and (5) We need a firm commitment for vocational education for those students who do not graduate from college.
