Pilot Feasibility Study of Training in Business and Industry.
Somers, Gerald G.
This eight city pilot survey tested the feasibility of conducting a nationwide mail survey of training in business and industry, including feasibility of the project for specific industry groups. Other objectives were to specify subject areas on which data might or might not be available; suggest a single questionnaire or series of questionnaires; obtain employer reactions to the survey procedures; propose additional areas for investigation; and analyze any collected data which might be useful. The original survey proposal was judged impractical. Recommendations were made to conduct personal interviews in a relatively small sample of firms of over 500 employees in a variety of industrial and geographical sectors, and to send a one page questionnaire to a larger national sample of firms. (The document includes questionnaires and 12 tables.) (LY)
