Manpower Planning Data: Selected Professional and Administrative Career Fields: 1966-1970 Trends, 1971-1975 Projections.
Veterans Administration, Washington, DC.
This report provides 5-year (1966-1970) trends for the following manpower planning factors: number of employees in each career field, grade distribution, age, length of service, education, employment of women, promotions, retirement, and losses. These data are intended as an aid to Veterans Administration (VA) management in assessing future manpower needs. Highlights from the data include: (1) Employment in the VA's major professional and administrative career fields increased by almost 6%; (2) Grade distribution remained fairly constant; (3) The average age of employees changed very little; (4) Retirement was not a big factor in employee turnover; and (5) Losses for all reasons averaged around 8% per year. It is stated that manpower planning for the period 1971-1975 should focus on short-range development programs for career employees, entrance-level career-trainee programs, quality-control measures, and identification and development of executive potential.
