Retention of the Hard-to-Employ. Perspectives on Training the Disadvantaged--The Hard-to-Employ. Personnel Services Review Series 2.
Harrison, Don K.; Brown, Dorothy R.
Although calculated by various statistical methods, retention (in this monograph) refers to the time that a former hard core member stays on the job. These rates may be tallied from the first day of pre-vocational training at a center, from the first day of a plant's vestibule training, or the first day of work at the job site. The hard core need special assistance to get a job and to keep it. Special problems such as lack of transportation, financial roadblocks, legal entanglements, ill-health, inadequate child care, and supervisory hostility may interfere with job retention. Specific details in each problem area along with practical solution possibilities, often community resources, constitute the body of this report. The special assistance or support for the new employee may come from divergent sources such as, the highly-trained clinical psychologist, to the buddy system that utilizes a fellow employee with a comparable background to that of the new employee.
